Latest Romano update on Spurs and Conte suggests staff numbers posing a problem

The latest update from Fabrizio Romano has suggested Spurs are struggling to get Antonio Conte over the line due to his staffing requests.

The respected journalist provided an update late last night to suggest Spurs were still talking to Conte. The former Chelsea manager has emerged as the frontrunner for Daniel Levy to replace Jose Mourinho.

Reports are updating by the hour it seems when it comes to Conte coming to North London. And while it’s accepted that talks are ongoing, this update from Romano will interest Spurs fans.

Romano suggests that Spurs are digging their heels over the staff Conte brings with him. The club, seemingly, want some of their current staff to stay on. Conte, meanwhile, is apparently wanting his own entourage.

Spurs’ search for a new manager has included a number of names. But the likes of Erik Ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers, and Mauricio Pochettino seem to be falling away. Conte, then, is clearly the number one choice as things stand.

Latest Conte to Spurs talk suggests more talks are needed

This has been the case with Spurs’ search for a boss ever since Jose Mourinho left. The constant back and forth will be so frustrating for some Tottenham fans.

If the club do want Conte, then why Levy is making demands around staff is bizarre. If the club wants to win, then they are not just letting Conte do his stuff with his trusted staff?

This would be just typical in some Spurs fans’ eyes if they let Conte slip now. With a deal in touching distance, Levy simply needs to get it done.
