How Tottenham could line-up under Mauricio Pochettino next season if he makes shock return including Harry Kane to STAY
TOTTENHAM are preparing for a monster summer with the future of star striker Harry Kane and hiring a new manager top of the agenda.
Kane, 27, has stated his desire to quit Spurs in a desperate bid to finally get his hands on some silverware.
Manchester City, United and Chelsea are all keen on the £150million-rated striker in what looks set to become the biggest transfer saga of 2021.
On the manager front, Ryan Mason took over from Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in April with a full-time replacement to be hired this summer.
But Spurs could look to their past to solve both problems – with SunSport revealing Mauricio Pochettino is set for a shock return to North London in a move that could see Kane sensationally STAY.
Poch is unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain after failing to win the Ligue 1 title and crashing out of the Champions League at the semi-finals stage.
And the Argentine would love a second chance at Spurs after his sacking in November 2019 following a five-year stay.
Chairman Daniel Levy has even admitted axing Pochettino was the biggest mistake of his career, paving the way for the ex-Southampton chief to return to the dugout.
With Poch back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, old favourites such as Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld and, of course, Kane would be near-certainties to start week-in, week-out.
One of the biggest moves could revolve around Dele Alli, though.

The England midfielder, 25, has looked encouraging since breaking back into the first-team under Mason having been largely frozen out and limited to cup run-outs under Mourinho.
With Pochettino back at the helm, Alli could slip into a No10 role behind old pal Kane – with the pair first linking up to devastating effect under the Argentine.
In defence, Spurs are likely to make reinforcements this summer – including a cut-price £10million swoop for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone following Baggies' relegation.
Barcelona ace Emerson and in-demand Norwich star Max Aarons are both targets at right-back with Serge Aurier tipped for a return to PSG.
In the heart of the back-four, Jerome Boateng is a target after he left Bayern Munich on a free transfer, with Fiorentina giant Nikola Milenkovic also on their radar.
Midfield-wise, Pochettino will likely be happy with his options with Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Eric Dier and Harry Winks among the options at his disposal.
With Gareth Bale returning to Real Madrid after his loan spell, Poch may look for a new winger.
But with Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min on the books, the incoming boss may be happy with his options and instead focus on the back four.
