Tottenham prepared to reject all approaches for Chelsea target Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino looks on during the English FA Cup semi-final football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley

The Blues are widely expected to part ways with Conte in the aftermath of Saturday's FA Cup Final against Jose Mourinho's Man Utd.

Not for the first time, Mauricio Pochettino made some thinly veiled comments directed at Daniel Levy once the curtain came down on Spurs' season on Sunday.

Sky Sports report that Chelsea are considering an approach for Pochettino if, as expected, Conte moves on this summer.

Not only is there the obvious rivalry between the clubs, but Chelsea haven't even qualified for next season's Champions League, while Tottenham have booked their place in Europe's top competition for the third straight season.

Spurs find themselves at a juncture in the Pochettino project.

For the third successive season, Tottenham Hotspur have secured a top-four finish meaning they'll once again be playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Oil near multi-year highs on Iran sanctions
US President Donald Trump on May 8 announced that the US was withdrawing from a 2015 deal negotiated by the Obama administration. One of the reasons why the price of oil has been inching up has been, in fact, the prospect of losing Iran's oil supply.

"I think Daniel is going to listen to me, but you know sometimes I might have some insane ideas".

"If we want to play and be real contenders for big, big trophies, yes, we need to review a little".

Spurs finished the campaign with an enthralling 5-4 victory over Leicester City in their last game at Wembley ahead of moving to their new stadium on the site of their old White Hart Lane ground, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane each scoring twice in a pulsating end-of-season fixture. We need to be fearless.

"I've learned so much from everyone, not just from the other centre-backs like Jan (Vertonghen), like Toby (Alderweireld), Juan (Foyth), and also Victor (Wanyama) and Eric Dier when they play in this position, but I pick up things from every player and of course from the gaffer (Pochettino)".

Home wins over Manchester United and Arsenal and 2-2 draws at Liverpool and Juventus in the space of 14 days at the start of the February suggested Spurs had taken a significant step toward, overcoming their fragility in high-stakes matches and big away games. It left the players questioning their quality and Pochettino questioning his long term future at the club.
