Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino could be set for a return to the dugout shortly in a move which would see his old club benefit.

Pochettino has been out of a job ever since he was sacked by Daniel Levy in November last year but he may be about to make a shock return to action. According to Record, as relayed by the Daily Mail, Benfica are reportedly interested in appointing the Argentine as their new manager.

The Portugal outlet claims that Benfica are ready to sack Bruno Lage even though they are only three points behind Porto in the Primeira Liga.

Whatever happens, this could be good news for Daniel Levy.

Levy sacked Pochettino after five years in charge of Tottenham as the club had made a disappointing start to the season. He has been linked with a return to the Premier League, amid interest from Manchester United and Newcastle United.

However, a move to Old Trafford seems unlikely, as Ed Woodward has thrown his support behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Meanwhile, Newcastle are in the middle of a takeover but nothing has materialised as of yet, so the Tyneside club may have bigger priorities at present.

Benfica have now thrown their name into the mix and they are determined to hire Pochettino at all costs.

Even though Pochettino lost his job last year, Levy still holds all the cards, which is hardly surprising as his reputation precedes him.

Indeed, The Telegraph revealed that Spurs will be entitled to compensation from any club that attempts to appoint him before the end of the season. It is worth pointing out this also applies to overseas clubs like Real Madrid and Benfica.

The Premier League restarted behind closed doors earlier this month and is expected to finish at the end of July, although fixtures are subject to change as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

The Eagles are on course to reach the Champions League playoffs but are keen to sign him as soon as possible. Nevertheless, they may have to pay the Lilywhites a hamdsome fee if Pochettino accepts an offer from the Lisbon giants.
