According to Marca, Los Blancos have set their sights on Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino following the Frenchman's decision to quit the club.

The Argentine, who signed a five-year contract extension with the north London side just last week, has been linked with a move to the Spanish giants a few times in the past couple of seasons.

In January, Pochettino hinted that he would have no problems managing the Madrid club at some point in the future, and also insisted he would never coach Catalan giants FC Barcelona after playing for, and managing, their local rivals Espanyol.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would apparently be willing to negotiate the terms of Pochettino's departure should Real president Florentino Perez come calling for him.

The 46-year-old apparently has no buyout clause in his contract with the Premier League club, and there is no verbal agreement stating that Spurs will facilitate a departure should another club come in for the Argentine.

Do you think Pochettino would be the right man for the Real hot seat? Have your say in the comments section below.

Between him, Klopp, Simeone, Heynkens & Guti one must be given the job since Guadiola & Ancelotti already committed themselves on new contracts with their respective teams
