Pochettino favourite for Madrid job ahead of potential Spurs exodus

| 31.05.2018

Mauricio Pochettino is now more likely than ever to replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager, according to our odds.

The Tottenham Hotspur boss is fancied to swap London for Madrid, and he’s now just a 5/4 shot to do exactly that.

Poch has replaced ex-Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger at the head of the market. The Frenchman is a now a 4/1 chance, ahead of Galacticos legend Guti (6/1) and Chelsea target Maurizio Sarri (7/1).

And the bad news doesn’t end there for Spurs fans. Five current Lilywhites players are now priced at 10/3 or shorter to make the Spanish capital their next port of call.

Harry Kane is considered the most likely mover at 5/4. It’s 2/1 for Dele Alli makes the switch to the Santiago Bernabeu, while Toby Alderweireld (5/2), Hugo Lloris (3/1) and Christian Eriksen (10/3) have also been priced up for moves.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “They’re yet to appoint a manager, but already it looks as though all eyes are on Madrid’s transfer targets with a whole host of Spurs stars being linked with moves away.”
