Rumors have multiplied in recent days suggesting that Spurs president Daniel Levy has been in contact with the Argentina manager in an attempt to convince him to return for a second stint in north London.
Despite the fact that Levy sacked Pochettino in November 2019, the two are believed to still have a good relationship, and Pochettino has already claimed he would be ready to return to Spurs at some point.
It was also claimed that he had struggled to settle in France and disagreed with PSG sporting director Leonardo.
It remains to be seen how the case will be resolved, with Pochettino’s current contract not ending until next year.
But according to Goal, he has made it clear that he sees his future far away from Parc des Princes and that he wants to leave just under five months after taking the job.
If Spurs want to sign Pochettino for the second time, they will likely face competition from Real Madrid, who are also looking for a new manager after Zinedine Zidane left earlier this week.
Pochettino has already referred to Madrid as a ‘dream’ club to train, and he could end up with a tough decision to make on his next destination.
It is believed he will require Levy to meet certain conditions to get to Spurs, such as securing a long-term contract and full transfer control.

While this is a hugely emotional date and one that Spurs fans are sure to like, not everyone thinks it would be the right move.
Club legend Glenn Hoddle said on the Keys & Gray podcast: “It’s so difficult.
“Pochettino is a great guy, I met him a few times with Ossie [Ardiles], he’s a very good footballer, good at his job.
“When he went to Paris Saint-Germain, I was like, ‘Now he’s going to have his success, now he’s going to have silverware,’ and he didn’t.
“Sometimes people are destined not to be successful.
“They’re very good at their jobs and great coaches, but other people think, ‘Oh, they got lucky,’ and they get their awards that way.
“That Daniel Levy turns around and says: ‘I’m going back to Poch, I made a mistake, it was my fault…’, it doesn’t look like Daniel.
“It would be a big call, a huge call. “
