Newcastle’s new owners are ready to offer former Tottenham Coach Mauricio Pochettino a massive £19million-a-year contract, MySportDab reports.
But, Real Madrid and Manchester United remain interested in the Argentine international.
Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham in November but placed him on leave so that any club interested would have to pay to hire the 48-year-old.
MySportDab understands he was hoping that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Zinedine Zidane would lose their jobs.
According to Sky Sports, Pochettino is still open to taking over the reigns at St James’ Park for Newcastle.
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is now ready to sell the club for £300m to Saudi Arabia crown prince Mohammed bin Salam.
When the takeover is complete, the new owner is ready to invest heavily and turn the team around in every section.
One of the people set to leave Newcastle is current Coach Steve Bruce, although he will remain manager until the end of the current season.
If accepted, Pochettino would become the second-highest paid coach in the English Premier League.
Manchester City Coach Pep Guardiola remains the highest paid Coach in the Premier League at £20m-a-year salary.
Should Pochettino Join Newcastle?
