'Now concluded': Journalist has another exciting update about Spurs, alongside Fonseca
Spurs are closing in on Paulo Fonseca, according to multiple reports.
And it looks as though Tottenham could be landing Fabio Paratici at the same time.
Spurs have been looking for a new manager since April, when they sacked Jose Mourinho.
They nearly landed Antonio Conte, but talks ultimately failed.
Now, Fonseca has reportedly agreed a contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
And Duncan Castles of the Transfer Window Podcast claims Paratici is also on his way.
“Fabio Paratici has agreed and will be named as the man in charge of the football department at Tottenham,” he said.
“The hold up, I’m told, on Fonseca being announced is because Tottenham want to announce Paratici’s appointment either before or simultaneously with a manager, but I am told that both of those are now concluded.”
Contract until 2023?
According to The Telegraph, Fonseca has agreed in principle a contract until 2023 with the option of a one-year extension.
Tottenham are looking to conclude the deal ahead of Fabio Paratici’s formal presentation, added the outlet.
Paratici, the former Juventus director, apparently led the Tottenham managerial search over the past few days.

After nearly two months without a permanent manager, Spurs finally look set to get their man.
Indeed, they look set to make a double swoop, with the highly-rated Paratici also seemingly joining
Fonseca certainly ticks a lot of boxes for Tottenham.
He’s got experience at the highest level, a CV with plenty of silverware – nine trophies, in fact – and sets his teams out to be attacking.
And Paratici’s heroics with Juve over the past decade are also noteworthy, having overseen years of trophies.
After a frustrating and deflating season, the future is starting to look bright again at N17.
