Pochettino believes Levy is too cautious and is demanding the backing to make a realistic challenge for the Premier League title next season.
It's a make or break week for Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino, with the Argentine manager set to hold what the Daily Mail describes as "crunch talks" with chairman Daniel Levy about his future.
Spurs will be hoping that his loyalty to the club will overcome that lure.
Pochettino said after the whirlwind 5-4 win over Leicester City at the weekend that he is "100%" committed to the task at Spurs, but raised the possibility that there might be a disagreement at boardroom level over the way forward for the club.
Spurs deserve credit for qualifying for the Champions League for a third successive season (while finishing as the top club in London for the first time in 23 years), which was the principle objective of the club's hierarchy and, by extension, Pochettino. "We are going to talk next week to create the new project", he said.
"I've learned so much from everyone, not just from the other centre-backs like Jan (Vertonghen), like Toby (Alderweireld), Juan (Foyth), and also Victor (Wanyama) and Eric Dier when they play in this position, but I pick up things from every player and of course from the gaffer (Pochettino)".
Tottenham's club-record signing Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract through until 2024.
Watching Spurs at their new stadium won't be cheap, with the cheapest season ticket costing £795 for adults and the most expensive £1,995 - the costliest anywhere in the Premier League. You need to be fearless.
"I have a very clear idea of what we need to do".
"Since I arrived here, the players have been fantastic, I've really enjoyed it and hopefully next season with our new stadium we can go one more step".
"I think it's a moment the club needs to take risks and if possible work harder than the previous season to be competitive again".
