Fabrizio Romano says Tottenham tabled offer to Juventus chief Fabio Paratici, new sporting director
Tottenham Hotspur are likely to undergo major surgery this summer and Daniel Levy could appoint a sporting director. Now, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says Spurs could appoint Juventus chief Fabio Paratici. It has already been confirmed that Paratici will leave Juve.
The 48-year-old has been the Old Lady’s sporting director since joining the club in 2010 from Sampdoria. He has overseen the dominance of Italian football since joining the club, winning nine successive league titles before eventually suffering his first season without a Serie A title this term.
It has also seen manager Andrea Pirlo replaced – with Max Allegri returning. Now, Paratici is looking for his third club. A loyal man, he has spent the last 17 years at just two clubs in Sampdoria and Juve and that might prove tempting for Levy. Indeed, Romano has confirmed an offer.
Romano reckons a bid is on the table for Paratici, who combined with Conte during the ex-Chelsea gaffer’s time at Juventus. Conte, of course, is also in talks with Tottenham and could end up replacing Jose Mourinho as manager. Now, Romano has said Paratici has an offer.
Could Paratici arrival finally get Levy’s long-term target Dybala to Tottenham?
Dybala has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham and almost arrived at Spurs in the summer of 2019. However, image rights scuppered a deal. But with the presence of Paratici and possibly Conte, could Dybala finally arrive at Tottenham in the coming months?
It is certainly a possibility. Clearly, Dybala is a player that Levy likes and after a tricky season under Pirlo – he might be on his way out. It depends what Allegri sees Dybala as with Cristiano Ronaldo still on fire. The mix of Paratici and Conte might just tempt Dybala.
