Kyle Walker Set For Spurs Exit After "Breakdown In Relationship" With Pochettino

Kyle Walker Set For Spurs Exit After "Breakdown In Relationship" With Pochettino
By Mikey Traynor

Having recently been named in the PFA Team Of The Season, Tottenham Hotspur fullback Kyle Walker may be on his way out of White Hart Lane despite his impressive season.

Walker has been tentatively linked with clubs such as Manchester City and Manchester United over the past few months, but a report from Independent.co.uk claims that Walker himself wants to push through a move this summer due to his relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Kyle Walker, left on the bench again yesterday, has decided that his future lies away from Tottenham Hotspur.

Barcelona have joined Manchester City and Manchester United in pursuit of the right-back and Walker, having fallen out with Mauricio Pochettino once again over fitness and selection, wants to leave.

Kieran Trippier started against Arsenal and is set to be offered an improved contract at Tottenham having impressed in recent weeks, but the former Burnley man getting the nod for the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley is seemingly what has made Walker's mind up.

And apparently the falling out between Walker and Pochettino boils down to fitness. The Spurs boss is reported to be of the opinion that Walker cannot compete two big games in the space of a week, while the player obviously refutes these claims.

The Independent go on to suggest that Walker will be available for a fee in the region of £35m-50m.

Pochettino and Daniel Levy are in no rush to sell any of their players but if any of the Spurs first team are to be sold this summer then Walker is the likeliest. He would cost at the very least £35million, if not closer to £50m, money which would be invested back into the team and ensure Spurs do not need to sell their crown jewels Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Danny Rose.

While it would be very harsh on Antonio Valencia, considering the season he has had, for Man Utd to go out and spend the guts of £50m on a right-back, the Ecuadorian is 31 years old so the idea of replacing him is something that will need to be considered in the not-too-distant future.

Manchester City, you would have to imagine, would be very interested as they are reportedly looking to sign fullbacks on both the right and left sides, and had been linked with a big money move for Danny Rose. Barcelona do indeed need a right-back as they have asked Sergi Robero to play out of position for the majority of the season.

It's set to be an exciting summer of Premier League transfer activity, that's for sure.
