Antonio Conte in advanced talks with Tottenham Hotspur to become next manager


Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in advanced talks with Antonio Conte about becoming their next manager. 

It is said that the Londoners are ready to give him a £150 million transfer war chest to revive the fortunes of the club. 

The Italian football expert had turned down the opportunity to take charge at Spurs in the summer as he wasn’t convinced by the ambitions of the club. 

However, as per The Sun, the Lilywhites chairman Daniel Levy is now ready to offer him a lucrative contract worth £290k-a-week as well as heavy financial backing in the transfer market. 

Conte has been without a job since he departed Serie A side Inter Milan at the end of the 2020-21 season. 

The 52-year-old led the San Siro side to the league title last campaign for the first time in 11 years.  

Tottenham appointed Nuno Espirito Santo in June after Jose Mourinho was dismissed from his position in north London. 

The Portuguese was given a two-year deal at Spurs with an option to extend for another year. 

Despite making an impressive start, performance levels soon deteriorated and things soured at the club. 

In the last 3-0 defeat against Manchester United, fans expressed their dissatisfaction and chanted “you don’t know what you’re doing” at the manager. 

Nuno was finally sacked on Monday, with the former Wolves boss lasting just 124 days in north London.
