Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino could be in line for a return to the Premier League.
The 48 year old Argentine has been out of work since being sacked by the North London club last November, just six months after guiding them to the final of the Champions League.
However, despite admitting that he dreams of a return to Tottenham, he is being lined-up by Newcastle United as their new boss if a projected £300 million buy-out of the club by a Saudi-led consortium is given UK government approval.
The consortium, led by financier Amanda Staveley were impressed by the rebuilding that Pochettino accomplished during his five years at Spurs, and are prepared to pay him an annual salary of up to £19 million.
The current Newcastle boss is Steve Bruce, but, for some, he lacks the prestige and charisma to front the new project, which still faces significant regulatory hurdles before it will be approved.
