TOTTENHAM want to start official talks with Paris Saint-Germain on Monday about bringing Mauricio Pochettino back to North London.
PSG boss Poch is eyeing a return to Spurs after falling out with the French giants’ sporting director Leonardo.

And if Poch does make the move, he will ask Harry Kane to give him at least one more season at Tottenham.
The England captain, 27, made clear he wants to leave in his hunt for honours — but that was before Poch let on he was interested in going back.
Spurs chairman Levy hopes it will persuade the striker, who still has three years on his deal, to stay put.
But it is unlikely to stop Manchester giants City and United from trying to bag the Prem’s 23-goal Golden Boot winner. While Poch would want to keep Kane, the star of his previous 5½-year spell, it is not a deal-breaker.

Spurs’ recruitment team already have a contingency plan if Kane does go — with Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings of Southampton on their list of possible replacements.
But Tottenham are confident if anybody can persuade Kane it is Poch.
The Argie and Spurs have already spoken and, if a PSG exit can be agreed, they will talk more next week.
Pochettino joined Spurs from Southampton seven years ago on Thursday — he turned them into a top-four club, taking them to the 2019 Champions League final before being replaced by Jose Mourinho in November that year.
