Paris Saint-Germain appear to have activated an extension to Mauricio Pochettino's contract amid interest from both Tottenham and Real Madrid.

Pochettino has reportedly told PSG of his desire to leave, just six months on from replacing Thomas Tuchel as head coach, after growing frustrated with how the club is run.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been in contact with Pochettino over a sensational return, while Zinedine Zidane has quit Real Madrid to leave the Spanish giants searching for a new manager.

In a move to quell rumours, PSG sporting director Leonardo has claimed Pochettino now has two years remaining on his contract despite signing an 18-month deal in December.

“Mauricio Pochettino has two years on his contract here at PSG and we are very happy with him,” Leonardo told French radio station Europe 1 on Sunday night.

PSG are keen to keep hold of Pochettino and avoid a second managerial change in such a short space of time.
