Pochettino has been the driving force behind the North London club’s marked improvement in the last 12 months and has forged an ambitious young squad at White Hart Lane.
The South American is rated as one of the Premier League’s most-respected managers and lead Spurs to a third-placed finish last season and Champions League qualification.
Madrid have a track record of churning through coaches, with little room for error for current boss Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu.
The Spanish capital city side have also raided Tottenham for Gareth Bale and Luke Modric in recent years, with the latest report suggesting that Los Blancos are eyeing up Pochettino as a future head coach in the capital.
