Tottenham have good relations with Barcelona and have often looked towards their academy for potential players for the future. Mauricio Pochettino is a personal friend of their president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, whom he accidentally bumped into in a restaurant in Barcelona when he went back to Spain for a break during the international break.
Marc Cucurella is an 18-year-old (19 in July) youngster we have had our eye on. His contract ends in the summer and he is waiting to see the offer Barcelona make him before he decides on the next step of his career. The left-back and Barcelona are due to meet before the season ends to discuss a new offer, with no rush on either side.
There is a problem for youngsters, naturally, they want to make it at the club, but it is very hard to break through and then there is also the uncertainty of a new manager, which will not be Mauricio Pochettino.
