Mauricio Pochettino‘s cousin believes that leaving Tottenham for Juventus this summer is a “feasible hypothesis”.
Pochettino remains a manager in demand after guiding Tottenham to a Champions League final, combining that with qualification for next season’s tournament.
But his future in north London is far from certain, as he said earlier this month he would be “the most stupid person” to stay unless he is given “different tools to work” with.
A recent Daily Express report suggested Tottenham would consider swapping managers with Juve, who recently let Massimiliano Allegri go.
Italian sources also suggest that the Serie A giants are preparing a three-year contract offer, which Pochettino’s cousin Daniele would welcome.
“Mauricio to Juventus is a feasible hypothesis. Everyone in our family wants to see him at Juve,” he told Tutto Juve.
“He is certainly attracted to Italy. He told us he wants to come to our country to find his ancestral heritage.
“I met Mauricio a few months ago. We talked about Piemontese food. He’s a nice and helpful person.
“He has the desire to coach Juve. He’s equipped with all the qualities needed to coach Juve. Juve always recruit the best coaches.
“Juve are looking for a coach who has the profile of a winner and Mauricio has this attitude. In style, he is a bit like that of Conte because he wins with a competitive spirit and intensity.
“I don’t know if he can be convinced. We must always see what would be eventually proposed to him.
“At the end, it is his decision. In the event he accepts Juve, we will welcome him with open arms.”
