Cape Town - Reports have surfaced claiming Jose Mourinho would be interested in the Tottenham Hotspur job should Mauricio Pochettino vacate the position.
The Portuguese coach was sacked at Manchester United last December after high-profile clashes with star players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, while there was apparent discontent over the club's failure to sign a defender in the summer.
Meanwhile, Pochettino has done brilliantly to build Spurs into a side consistently challenging for the top four places in the Premier League, while he got them to the Champions League final last term.
However, they have struggled this season with injuries and rumours of unhappy players in the squad, with speculation over the summer that several key stars could leave.
And now there has been some speculation that he could leave Spurs, although Tim Sherwood says Daniel Levy would never sack Pochettino.
The Daily Mail claims that Tottenham 'are among the clubs that appeal' to Mourinho, with Real Madrid another job that the Portuguese manager would be interested in.
Offers from Guangzhou Evergrande and Benfica have reportedly been rejected by Mourinho, who has been appearing as a TV pundit while he looks for the right job.
The report adds that Tottenham have 'no plans to sack Pochettino' but there are concerns that he is 'looking for a way out'.
