This comes as Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed he turned down the chance to coach Real Madrid last June in order to honour his contract with the London club, saying that leaving Spurs in the lurch would have gone against his values.

The Madrid job became vacant when Zinedine Zidane resigned as coach after winning a third consecutive Champions League title last May.

Pochettino, 47, said in an interview with El Pais published on Wednesday that he was offered the role.

"It was a difficult situation because the dream of any coach was at stake – coaching one of the biggest clubs around. And I had to say no, that was tremendous," he was quoted as saying.

"It created a conflict because you know that if a coach wants to leave, he will leave, but I had just signed a new contract with Tottenham and I felt that I couldn't do anything."

Pochettino joined Spurs in 2014 and is one year into a new five-year deal at the club who have moved into a new stadium.

Julen Lopetegui was eventually named Real coach, a decision which saw him sacked as Spain manager on the eve of the 2018 World Cup, but he was fired by Real at the end of October.

Santiago Solari then took charge of Real until he was sacked in March, when Zidane made a sensational return to the club.
