Tottenham gave away a two-goal lead at Stamford Bridge to draw 2-2 against Chelsea, handing Leicester City the Premier League title in the process.
It was a huge disappointment for the Spurs, who received a record nine yellow cards during a frustrating game that saw them lose every chance at winning their first title since 1961.
Still, Tottenham can look back on one hell of a season, as they are still ranked second in the league table and will finally play Champions League football next season.
If the Spurs want to replicate this season’s success, it will be key to keep their core of players together. That means resisting the temptation to sell the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld, Hugo Lloris, and Christian Eriksen if huge transfer offers make their way to White Heart Lane.
However, coach Mauricio Pochettino is about to sign a contract extension at the club, who are working to extend the deals of Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli, whose current deals run out in 2018, according to The Telegraph.
The report also states that the Argentine boss was told by chairman Daniel Levy that the Spurs are not going to sell any star players, and that they won’t even be tempted to sell Alli for £100 million.
“I think it is normal that if you achieve, you want more. But the players want to stay here and bring this club to the new stadium and play in the Champions League. It is a collective objective,” Pochettino said.
The Telegraph also states that Tottenham are in talks with Marseille over a potential deal for striker Michy Batshuayi and that they could revive their interest in Southampton’s Victor Wanyama.
