Tottenham 'won't let Mauricio Pochettino join Man United... even for £50m'

Football: Spurs' Pochettino recalls how he cheered United counterpart Solskjaer's 1999 Champions League final goal

Spurs v United - Mauricio's preview

United have won all five of Solskjaer's matches in charge at Old Trafford.

And the Argentine joked that he found the talks easy to conduct, despite Levy's reputation for being hard to do business with, summed up by Sir Alex Ferguson's famous quote that bartering with him was "more painful than my hip replacement".

Solskjaer now faces his toughest test as United boss as his side travel to Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday. "Do what you feel you are best at"'. I remember him when he scored the second goal in the injury time and how I shouted the goal of Manchester United, that was unbelievable.

"For me, if there was one person that was easy to do business with, it was Daniel".

He said: "It was very good. We're people that love to win and hate to lose".

"Has Ferguson given United a new energy?" Pogba has been passed fit for this match and, while he has thrived in a more advanced role under Solskjaer, the quality ahead of him sees him drop back into the holding two in this XI. "He is an encyclopaedia of football".

Roy Keane recalled: "Ferguson came in and said: "Lads, it's Tottenham", and that was it. Brilliant".

Lukaku averages a goal nearly every other game for the Red Devils but he has struggled this season, only scoring eight league goals so far, and went nine games without a goal at one point.

The Denmark midfielder's future remains uncertain with 18 months left on his contract, but Pochettino said: "We hope that he can be here for a long time".

"I don't know what happened in the past but games like Tuesday's semi-final against Chelsea please me a lot".

Solskjaer's most famous moment in a United shirt came when he scored an injury-time victor against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.

Levy, though, believes that Spurs can not risk losing Pochettino and will rebuff any advances from Old Trafford, according to The Sun.

"For different reasons, because after almost five years, always you need to refresh the project, to find a different way". They were mid-table, and mid-table for facilities.

"But today we are in the top for facilities and for the last few years the club is fighting against the big sides".
