  OLIVER HOLT: It's right for Spurs to sell Kane as soon as possible OLIVER HOLT - CHIEF SPORTS WRITER: Daniel Levy has often had a strong hand in the past. Not any more. Not this time. Spurs are skint and, more to the point, everyone knows they are.If things go to form, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will strike a deal to sell Harry Kane to Manchester City at 10.59pm on the final day and people will smile admiringly and nod knowingly and trot out the usual platitudes about how Daniel's a nightmare to deal with but he drives the hardest bargain in football.

He claims world class training ground and stadium will be matched on pitch. Spurs still waiting to move back to White Hart Lane into new 62,000 stadium. Pochettino has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United next summer and it comes as a result of having established Spurs as a top-four team despite having a much less net spend on players compared to their major rivals. The Argentine has been in charge of the north London side since 2014 but the one major criticism of his tenure has been the lack of silverware, with Spurs on their longest trophy drought since the second World War.

He reportedly fancies the idea of becoming Tottenham’s head coach once again, but one huge obstacle appears to be PSG, with the Argentine’s current club not keen on losing him this summer.

The Latest: L’Equipe source makes big Levy claim…

As per the print edition of French newspaper L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), a source close to the situation has detailed just how desperate Levy is to see Pochettino return to Spurs.

The Tottenham chairman is apparently ‘ready’ to make ‘lots of concessions’ in pursuit of the Lilywhites fan favourite, with Levy also holding a belief this appointment could ease the pressure on his position.

“Daniel Levy knows that, in the face of his unpopularity, he doesn’t have much choice,” the source explained to L’Equipe (via Sport Witness) when asked on the Pochettino situation.

The Argentine got the sack from Spurs in November 2019 after a sour start to the season, moving to Paris Saint-Germain in January this year.

Spurs started the season with three successive wins to lead the table before the first international break - but they went on to lose the next three, conceding nine goals in the process and leaving some fans demanding new manager Nuno Espirito Santo to be sacked. And during Spurs ' 2-1 win over Villa on Mauricio Pochettino was sacked just months after that night in Madrid and his successor Jose Mourinho was unable to guide them back into the top four or win any silverware. The former Chelsea boss was sacked the day before the Carabao Cup final last season, with Ryan Mason guiding the

Pochettino was linked with a move back to former club Tottenham following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Spurs are still yet to appoint a permanent successor to Mourinho, over two months since he was relieved of his duties. "So there you have at least the potential that Daniel Levy can get the man back who he seems to regret having sacked. "It would certainly, from a PR perspective, wash away a terrible few weeks for them, with failure on successive attempts to appoint a range of candidates."

“He is ready to make lots of concessions. Bringing back Pochettino, very popular, could allow him to come out of the crisis from the top.”

The Verdict: Boost for Tottenham?

That Levy is seemingly ready to make concessions to land his man could come as an exciting claim for Spurs supporters, but the Spurs chairman’s apparent reasoning behind a possible return for Pochettino may be worrying and indicate a lack of critical thinking.

Indeed, re-hiring the former Southampton manager would come as a big PR win for Levy and may do wonders to appease a large section of fans who, in recent weeks, have voiced their displeasure with his running of the club.

If he really wants what is best for Tottenham, the 59-year-old may have to think harder over who could be the best appointment logically – and that doesn’t necessarily mean the most popular choice.
