A bit of a surprise…
I mentioned private sources for tour italy Antonio Conte is in advanced talks with Tottenham in preparation for taking over the Spurs leadership next season.
Conte had announced his departure from Inter after two years, during which he was able to crown the Italian league, due to the difference of views between him and the Nerazzurri administration.
Tottenham at the same time sacked coach Jose Mourinho in the middle of the last season, and appointed Ryan Mason temporarily until the recruitment of a permanent coach to succeed Special One.
According to the latest news from Goal ItalyThe talks between Conte and the management of Daniel Levy are going well, and the Italian coach may be appointed at the London club within the next few hours.
And Conte will not be the only one coming to an important position at Tottenham from Italy, as Levy’s management is also in negotiations with former Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici.
Conte has distinguished experience in the Premier League, where he won his title when he was coach of another London club, Chelsea, in the 2016-17 season.
It is worth noting that thus Conte will have repeated what happened from Mourinho with the training of the arch-rivals Chelsea and Tottenham, awaiting the harsh criticism he will receive from the Blues fans.
