Tottenham Hotspur reach an agreement with Paulo Fonseca on a two-year deal
Tottenham have been long searching for a full-time replacement for Jose Mourinho who was sacked by the club back in April. After facing setbacks after setbacks in pursuit of a number of managerial candidates, it seems like Spurs have finally found their man.
The report states that Fonseca has now agreed on a two-year contract with Tottenham which also includes an option of extending it by a further twelve months.
The deal is all but completed with the final paperwork left to be completed and an announcement is expected to be made over the weekend or the next week, once Fonseca arrives in London to finalise the remaining details of the agreement.
Fonseca left his previous job with AS Roma in the last month, where he has coincidentally been replaced by Jose Mourinho.
The 48-year-old wasn’t Tottenham’s first-choice to take over but Daniel Levy has decided to take the plunge as the manager is known for nurturing young talent while playing an attacking brand of football, things that were key requirements for the Spurs chairman. (h/t The Telegraph)

Fonseca’s pursuit was spearheaded by Fabio Paratici, who will soon be announced as the club’s new Director of Football. The Portuguese manager will not be working with the same team of assistants that he has had throughout his career – something that was confirmed by long-term assistant Nuno Campos on social media.
