Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino – a target for Real Madrid – was spotted leaving in London restaurant on Tuesday night shortly after David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane.
In the pictures published by The Sun, the Argentine was seen wearing a navy puffer jacket and jeans as he left, with Beckham – and Zidane leaving later.
It is understood that Real Madrid legends Beckham and Zidane enjoyed dinner together. Pochettino was not with them, but I did like over to greet the pair.

It heightens fears from Spurs fans that their boss may be off this summer, with the Spanish giants considering a big appointment. Pochettino is at the top of their hitlist.
Another of the Manchester United players clubs are also monitoring their situation, although their resurgence under caretaker.
Zidane was sacked in December.

Pochettino's assistant manager Jesus Perez was also pictured leaving the swanky Locanda Locatelli restaurant in central London.
Beckham and Zidane played alongside each other for three seasons between 2003 and 2006 at Real Madrid during the club's ultimate Galactico era.

Santiago Solari is currently in charge at the Bernabeu, although he is not expected to be past the end of the season.
Tottenham have managed to hold on to Pochettino since his arrival in 2014, during which time he has elevated them into the Premier League title contenders and Champions League regulars.

They desperately want to be in charge next season when they will be running out in their new stadium.
However, it appears to be increasing with Real Madrid for his services.
Spurs are believed to be more fearful of losing Pochettino to Real than they are United.
Pochettino said: 'No, no. Why? This type of news I think does not upset or bore people.
I prefer to talk about "Tottenham is going to sack me" or "people are tired of me" or "we are in a difficult situation".
'Of course, if I choose one situation I choose this one. I am not bored of it, of course. '
The Argentine has been joked about Daniel Levy being 'concerned' about him leaving
He signed a five-year contract in May and has publicly joked about chairman Daniel Levy being 'concerned' about him potentially departing.
'Daniel does not laugh,' he said. I know it gets boring but he is worried, he is concerned. It is normal. It is not nice for Daniel to hear all that history of course.
'Do I have to reassure him? No. It is like in football when the sporting director or president says "No, the manager is going to be here and we trust in him" and next game … OUT. If you reassure something it is because you are thinking different things.
He is a worried man because he is jealous about me! It's normal, no, because of the rumors. '
