Tottenham to name Fabio Paratici as sporting director despite Antonio Conte setback

According to The Telegraph (h/t Daily Star), Tottenham may have ended their pursuit of Antonio Conte for the managerial role but are on track to name Fabio Paratici as the new Director of Football.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for Conte, who had recently quit his post as Inter Milan boss, for the vacant manager’s role at the club. However, reports late on Friday emerged that talks had broken down due to the Italian’s demands, with Spurs deciding to end their pursuit of the 51-year-old, as a result. (h/t Daily Star)

However, that is not set to affect their chase of Fabio Paratici for the director of football role. The 48-year-old recently quit a similar position with Juventus, bringing an end to his 11-year stay with the Turin giants.

Having worked with Conte in the past, it was believed that Tottenham would be recreating that partnership at the club. However, it will not be happening with the club moving on from the manager. But, nevertheless, that hasn’t affected their pursuit of Paratici, who is still locked in to take over as the next sporting director at Spurs. (h/t Daily Star)

In fact, it is even being claimed that the Italian has an agreement in place with Spurs with Fabrizio Romano insisting that an appointment will be confirmed this week. In addition, the reliable journalist has also added that Paratici will be involved in discussions over the new manager.

As for the new man in the dugout, the wait continues.
