Serie A expert Conor Clancy believes that Daniel Levy will get along with Tottenham Hotspur Managing Director Fabio Paratici because he doesn’t tend to sign a huge number of players every summer.
The north London outfit officially announced the appointment of the Italian on Saturday evening, after he agreed terms to become the club’s new director.
The Italian will move after leaving Juventus at the end of the season, and he will be entrusted with the responsibility of singing new players and also appointing the club’s next manager following the mid-season sacking of Jose Mourinho.
Will Paratici be a success at Spurs?
Paratici only signed four players for a fee last summer for the Italian club, bringing in Arthur, Nicolo Rovella, Stefano Gori and Rolando Mandragora. Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa, and Weston McKennie all arrived on loan.
And Clancy, who is the editor-in-chief of Forza Italian Football, thinks that Levy may have found a kindred spirit in the sense of his lack of transfer activity.
Indeed, under Mauricio Pochettino’s management, Spurs became the first and, to date, only Premier League club to go an entire summer without signing a player.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Clancy said: “I think Levy might like the fact that he doesn’t go and sign players all that much.”
