Kyle Walker’ relationship with Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has taken a rough turn and has been branded as ‘almost untenable’ after the English full-back was was dropped for two of Spurs’ most crucial games of the season.
Walker faced the ace during their FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea and then during Sunday’s North London derby victory over arch rivals Arsenal, and now it is said that Pochettino has not given him any reason for being dropped.
Manchester United and Manchester City are keen on roping in the services of 26-year-old right-back and sources claim that tcurrent league leaders Chelsea have also shown huge interest in the English player, despite knowing that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is dead against doing any business with their London rivals.
Walker has proved his mettle over the past few seasons and has documented his name amongst the fastest and fittest players in the Premier League.
He is not happy for being replaced by Kieran Trippier for those two crucial games, despite having no fitness concerns.
Pochettino have had a tendency of rotating his full-backs but previously he has alsways deployed Walker and left-back Danny Rose for the club’s most crucial games.
But now Pochettino’s relationship with Walker has now taken an ugly turn during the recent weeks.
Walker is known for speaking his heart out – one who voices his opinions without any inhibitions, but it is understood that the Argentine manager would not appreciate players voicing their opinions.
Both Man Utd boss Mourinho and Man City manager Guardiola are eyeing to rope in agile and talented full-backs in the summer and Walker could solve the jigsaw puzzle for them.
And as the Spurs hierarchy deciding to offer Trippier a new contract to make him their first-choice right-back it is evident that Walker is now determined to part ways with the club.
