Mauricio Pochettino has opened talks over a multi-million pound move to Juventus, according to reports in Italy.
The Tottenham Hotspur manager has guided his side to the Champions League Final despite injuries to star men and not singing a single player for two transfer windows.
However, the 47-year-old revealed in his Friday press conference he is willing to walk away from north London if Spurs do not match his ambition.
A dramatic victory over Ajax secured a place in the final in Madrid, but with Juve set to get rid of Massimiliano Allegri this summer, the Argentine has earned a new suitor.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Pochettino wants €20million (£17.2million) a-year to take the hot seat but Juve chairman Andrea Agnelli is in no rush to commit with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri also on his radar.
Although the 47-year-old signed a five-year deal last May, the former Southampton boss is openly ambitious and briefly flirted with the idea of taking over Manchester United or Real Madrid.
But, as his tears in Amsterdam show, Poch is loyal to Spurs. But he made it clear he wants rewards for his loyalty.

He said: “The problem is, I need to know what we need to achieve or what we are going to fight for.
“I am not open to starting a new chapter with no plan, with no clear idea, with not being transparent.
“If we believe we can operate in the same way we have in the last five years and that we are going to be in the final of the Champions League and be in the top four every season competing against Manchester City or Liverpool or Manchester United, I think we are very naive.”
