“What I do hear is that Pochettino is waiting and watching very closely in particular United, Manchester City, perhaps Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and others to see what’s going to happen there.
“The real issue is that there are no vacancies at the moment which is something of a surprise because in the build up to the summer of 2020 there was expected to be a lot of change in the managerial market but the coronavirus pandemic has changed everything and for many, the idea of sacking a manager and paying compensation was not something they could afford to.
“Perhaps that doesn’t affect clubs right at the top end but it was a worry for many. We’ve talked about United, the situation with City is that Guardiola is there until at least next summer, City have been public in saying they want to extend with him.
“PSG could have a change with Thomas Tuchel and Pochettino formerly a player there. Chelsea, things seem pretty stable at the moment, he’s been backed in the transfer market and things look to be going quite well. They’re embarking on quite a long-term project there.
“Barcelona, a bit of instability with a change at board level of president. We know when a new president comes in they often have their own manager in mind, I’ve heard some of the candidates do have Pochettino on their list but I’m not sure he’s at the top.
“It’d be interesting dynamic with his fellow Argentine Lionel Messi, who is also out of contract next summer. Real Madrid it seems pretty stable at the moment, for a change, with Zinedine Zidane in his second spell there.”
