Will it be Frank de Boer week?

With Frank de Boer away on a post-season tour with Dutch champions Ajax Mauricio Pochettino took the limelight as flavour of the week.

Will it be Frank de Boer week?

Countless reports and ITK confirmed Spurs were in discussions with his agent Jonathan Barnett, the man who negotiated the summer long sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid at the end of last season.

The 42 year-old is the bookies favourite to start in the hot seat at White Hart Lane in August but he is not the only candidate. Overwhelmingly Spurs fans want Frank de Boer, believed to be the choice of Franco Baldini on the shortlist our technical director was asked to draw up.

Frank de Boer returned from Indonesia on Saturday and he is known to want his future sorted out by the end of the month. Reports in Holland have suggested that he has privately told friend he is joining Spurs but did annoy the club making public our phone call to Ajax Director of Football Marc Overmars asking about his availability.

Business is business however and you don't back out of a deal simply because your pride might be hurt. They can hardly complain about his conduct with the manner in which they treated Tim Sherwood. If the committee appointing the new manager believe the Champions League winning Dutchman is the best man for the job they will set about signing him.

Frank de Boer has covered all bases with the media so both sets of fans can be appeased, he has made quotes about seeing himself managing Tottenham and also that he'd be happy to stay another year at Ajax. Whatever happens he can now come out and say that was his intention all along. It's simply a media game.

De Boer wants his future sorted quickly, Spurs want a new manager quickly so this week should reveal whether Spurs retain an interest and are interviewing candidates or whether the powers that be have decided Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino is the man.

However there is a train of thought that suggests a spanner in the works. The Daily Mirror suggest that Daniel Levy is willing to wait until after the Champions League final to see if Real Madrid part company with Carlo Ancelloti.

For us Frank De Boer fans it's fingers crossed time.
