Writing on Twitter, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has lifted the lid on another big development at Tottenham Hotspur amid all the talk surrounding Antonio Conte’s possible appointment.
The Lowdown: Spurs shakeup incoming?
All the signs appear to point towards former Chelsea manager Conte taking charge at Tottenham ahead of what could be a very interesting 2021/2022 season.
Much has been made of chairman Daniel Levy’s search for a new boss with plenty of names dropping in and out of the candidacy.
On Wednesday, the Italian emerged as a clear frontrunner with fellow managerial target Mauricio Pochettino now looking likely to stay at Paris-Saint Germain.
Amid the managerial hysteria, Romano has now lifted the lid on another big backroom development.
The Latest: Romano lifts lid on big Spurs development
Taking to Twitter, reliable source of information Romano has shared more news on a possibly big Tottenham shakeup this summer – this time concerning members of the board.
Indeed, he claims an offer is now on the table for ex-Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici to join the club alongside Conte.
“Tottenham tried to appoint Fabio Paratici as director of football five years ago,” Romano explained on social media.
“#THFC proposal is now on the table again. He’s gonna answer/decide soon.
“Antonio Conte representatives are discussing details with Tottenham board in order to reach an agreement.”
The Verdict: Hitchen in trouble?
Tottenham’s current technical performance director Steve Hitchen’s position could be made unclear by the possible arrival of Paratici, as backed by other reports (Evening Standard).
Spurs have been linked with a new director of football for some time and preferably one with a rich history of fruitful transfer dealings.
However, it appears Levy now has his eyes on another sporting chief to shake up his backroom.
Describing himself as a man ‘obsessed by knowledge’ in an interview with Sky Sport Italia (via Juventus.com), Paratici was also responsible for bringing Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin.
It’s clear, judging by his credentials, he may be a sound alternative to Hitchen if he agrees to Tottenham’s proposal.
