Opinion: Levy could be planning exciting Spurs double swoop for 'top' manager and backroom serial winner
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has a great opportunity to make an impressive double swoop at Spurs this summer.
Spurs are currently on the lookout for a new manager, but they could well be looking for new boardroom additions too.
Fabio Paratici is set to leave Juventus following 11 years at the Serie A club, as his contract won’t be renewed in the summer.
Although his final season may have not been great in terms of recruitment, you can’t understate his role in bringing 19 trophies to Turin in 11 years, as well as in signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Tuttosport claims that Spurs are “thinking about” snapping up the Juve football director, an official who Levy apparently rates very highly.
Tottenham reportedly had an interest in the 48-year-old back in 2018, according to Calciomercato.
Interestingly, Paratici is close to Antonio Conte, a manager heavily linked with Spurs in recent weeks.
Corriere Della Sera reported earlier this month that the pair have remained in contact over recent years.
Now, Conte has left Inter Milan, just weeks after leading the club to their first Serie A title in over a decade.
According to Sky Sports, Inter chairman Steven Zhang asked Conte to cut his wage bill by 15 to 20 per cent and potentially sell players worth up to £70m this summer.
The outlet claims that Conte has agreed a deal with the club’s owners which will see him paid €7m (£6m) for the final year of his contract.
So, both Paratici and Conte are unattached to other clubs going into the summer, and both are linked with Spurs.
Could Levy be planning an exciting double swoop to bring a “top”, “brilliant” manager – in Jamie O’Hara’s words – and a backroom serial winner to N17?
