Mauricio Pochettino should be relieved at dodging the Manchester United bullet as Tottenham fly in Europe

Spurs opinion: Mauricio Pochettino dodged the Manchester United bullet by sticking with Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino will be planning for the huge Champions League clashes against Ajax as the season comes to an end.

Tottenham saw off Manchester City in a charged quarter-final to set up a surprising date with the Dutch giants.

Ajax defeated Juventus in their Champions League tie, and have been impressive this season knocking out Real Madrid too.

Pochettino also knows there is a job at hand in the Premier League. Tottenham are not guaranteed Champions League football next season, but have fate in their own hands as they lie third in the Premier League table.

The manager has done a wonderful job without any additions to the side and should be thinking about his moves in the summer, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be making the same moves but in a completely different environment.

United struggling to get the job done

The wheels seem to be coming off the Manchester United express as they were dealt another blow in the race for the top four.

Everton destroyed Solskjaer’s team 4-0 on Sunday, and it laid bare the amount of work to be done in the summer for the Red Devils.

Harry Kane could not get past David de Gea

There was a lot of hype under the Norwegian when United went on an eight-game winning run, but now they are back to square one.

Ole even said that certain players will be sold and there would be some tough decisions once the season is done (h/t BBC):

“You can’t change your whole squad. One step at a time. I am going to be successful here and there are players who won’t be part of that.”

United’s move proves to be a blessing for Pochettino

The Norwegian’s excellent start to his interim managerial role ended up with the club appointing him as the full-time manager.

Mauricio Pochettino was linked with the role after Ole was given the interim role, and the Norwegian even claimed the Argentine had done a great job (h/t Guardian).

Naming Ole as the full-time manager now appears to be a hasty decision. The players were coming off the “new manager syndrome” after Jose Mourinho was replaced by the former Red Devil.

Ole saw some impressive wins, such as the Champions League win over PSG, however, the cracks are for all to see with losses against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal in recent weeks.

The club still does not have a director of football (h/t Express), and there are several egos that need to be dealt with at Old Trafford.

Pochettino doesn’t have the best Premier League squad but he is extracting the best from the team in almost every game.

Players give it their all for the manager, and we only need some quality additions to move to the next level.

Daniel Levy claimed there would be money to spend once the season is done, and hopefully, we get the right players into the team (h/t Evening Standard).

Spurs are a couple of games away from reaching the Champions League final. They have more than a great chance of finishing in the top four and are playing in one of the best stadiums in the world.

United might be capable of spending more in the summer window, but the Argentine should be relieved that he doesn’t have to join the madness at Old Trafford.

Spurs transfer news: Arsenal set to beat Tottenham in landing Dani Ceballos

Football.london reports that Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.

The 22-year-old was one of the stars for Spain in their U21 Euro winning squad, the report claims that the midfielder could be sold in the summer after Real made several big signings.

The report adds that AC Milan and Liverpool are also interested in the 22-year-old, however, AS (h/t Football.london) claimed that Spurs had agreed on a loan deal to land the Spaniard.

However, the outlet adds that Ceballos will reject a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and join the Gunners instead (h/t Football.london).

The report adds that the interest from Unai Emery was the key to them landing Ceballos, and the Spaniard wants to play at the Emirates Stadium.

A blow for Tottenham’s summer plans

Ceballos would do a great job under Mauricio Pochettino, and it is interesting to note that Arsenal seem to be winning the race for the Spaniard.

The Gunners do not have Champions League football on their side, and the report adds that Ceballos wants to start games regularly next season.

The 22-year-old wasn’t picked regularly under Zinedine Zidane last season, and he might get more games under Emery than Pochettino. Spurs have only signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke in the summer, and can do with another quality midfielder joining the side.

Not Trippier – La Liga giants interested in another Tottenham star as well

Spurs transfer news: Atletico Madrid interested in Christian Eriksen

Atletico Madrid might be close to landing Kieran Trippier, however, he isn’t the only Tottenham star they are eyeing (h/t Football.london).

The Evening Standard (h/t Football.london) claims that Christian Eriksen is in the sights of the La Liga side as they search for a playmaker.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also interested in the 27-year-old Dane, who has just one year left on his current deal.

The midfielder had claimed he wanted to take up a new challenge after the Champions League final, however, he still is a Tottenham player.

Atletico have seen several players leave in the summer, with Rodri joining Manchester City. Juanfran also exited the club, and the biggest transfer has to be that of Antoine Griezmann’s.

The French attacker completed his move to Barcelona recently, and it will be interesting to see who Atletico can sign before the start of the season.

Will Eriksen fit into Atletico’s style?

The Dane is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and would do well at a top club.

Atletico aren’t known for their intricate style of play in the final third, and it is difficult to see how Eriksen would fit into Diego Simeone’s plans.

Staying at Tottenham would be a better decision for the Dane than joining Atletico, however, it will be interesting to see if Simeone’s team submits a quality offer for the Dane.

It would be great to keep Eriksen at the club and extend his deal, but the next best option is to sell him to a non-Premier League club.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham committed to signing Ryan Sessegnon

The Telegraph reports that Tottenham are committed to signing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the English game but saw his side suffer relegation last season.

Sessegnon was inconsistent at Fulham and ended up playing under three managers in the span of 12 months.

Danny Rose Tottenham

The English youngster is versatile enough to play as a leftwinger or as a left-back, and the report claims that Tottenham see the 19-year-old as a long-term successor of Danny Rose.

Tottenham’s Rose was one of our better performers in the previous campaign and started in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

However, the Englishman hinted he could leave in the summer after claiming that Tottenham sell off players who reach a certain age.

Fulham need to sell Sessegnon soon

The report adds that Fulham have to sell Sessegnon in the summer, with the English youngster having just one year left on his current deal.

Sessegnon also prefers a move to Tottenham, according to the Telegraph, and hopefully, we can make him our third signing of the summer.

Tottenham could use someone of Sessegnon’s ability and the English youngster should grow under Mauricio Pochettino.

It will be interesting to see if Sessegnon plays as the left-back at Tottenham. His best performances came in the attacking positions, and we could use a quick and tricky winger in the team.

Spurs transfer news: Fans react to Atletico Madrid agreeing on a deal for Trippier

Sky Sports claims that Atletico Madrid have agreed on a €24m move for Kieran Trippier.

The English defender is set to be in Spain on Wednesday to complete a medical with the La Liga club, and the report claims that the deal could be finalised by the weekend.

The report adds that Tottenham were offered attacker Angel Correa in the deal, but Tottenham opted for a cash deal.

The English defender had an inconsistent campaign for Spurs last time around but no one can doubt his commitment to the cause. The right-back came off a wonderful World Cup campaign with the Three Lions, but could not carry that form into the club season.

Tottenham left with a minor problem

Spurs would only have Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters as the senior right-backs in the side should Trippier leave. That could be a problem given that Aurier’s previous season was littered with injuries.

Spurs could do with another right-back coming in and providing cover for the duo.

Many fans highlighted that Trippier just could not cut it at Tottenham while some were pleased that Spurs were getting a good deal for the Englishman. Some fans were supportive of Trippier’s decision to take up a new challenge, and here are a few reactions to the transfer:
