REAL MADRID are reportedly set to end Tottenham’s hopes of landing Mauricio Pochettino.

That’s by launching a fresh move for the Argentine boss.

The Times claims Real are considering parting ways with Carlo Ancelotti this summer after falling short in LaLiga.

The reigning champs are 14 points behind rivals Barcelona after Sunday’s 2-1 derby defeat at the Nou Camp.

And although they remain firmly in the Champions League hunt after securing a quarter-final tie against Chelsea, Real’s shortcomings at home could soon catch up to Ancelotti.

Jose Mourinho is thought to be on their shortlist, as is Thomas Tuchel.

But it’s reckoned Pochettino is Real’s top choice to take charge at the Bernabeu.

The tactician has been out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain last year.

And Real are ready to pounce after making several attempts in the past.

Spurs are also hoping to reappoint him after Antonio Conte’s latest meltdown.

However, Poch could snub a return to London in order to take charge of superstars like Luka Modric and Karim Benzema.

That would force Tottenham to look elsewhere, with no less than NINE targets drawn up.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Oliver Glasner ranks highly on that list after winning last season’s Europa League.

The likes of Fulham’s Marco Silva and Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou are also of interest to Daniel Levy.
