Report: 48-year-old had Roma interest, but is set for Spurs role; close to agreeing three-year deal

Spurs appear set to get one over on Jose Mourinho with the appointment of Fabio Paratici, with Tuttomercatoweb reporting that Roma were one of the sides interested in the 48-year-old.

Daniel Levy may already be tired of the summer transfer window. Spurs remain without a manager. And of course, doubts remain over Harry Kane’s future.

Tottenham fans will be hoping for good news on both fronts in the near future.

But one positive for Spurs is that it appears that a new sporting director is on his way.

And interestingly, it is claimed that he had attracted interest from both Roma and Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Paratici is set to sign a three-year deal in North London.

Paratici appointment a much-needed boost for Spurs as three-year deal nears

Paratici joining will provide Spurs with a much-needed boost. Having a sporting director in place will surely speed up the process of finding another manager.

And of course, it should also pave the way towards Spurs’ transfer business getting underway.

Paratici seems to have a lot of work to do. Tottenham did not enjoy the best season.

And, as well as Kane, there are questions marks over other players. Hugo Lloris and Serge Aurier have both issued interesting responses about their futures in recent times.

As things stand, Gareth Bale will be a Real Madrid player next year.

So there is plenty for Paratici to get on with.

Spurs fans will take encouragement from Roma and PSG links

Paratici is not yet a household name in England. So Spurs fans will take encouragement from the links with Roma and PSG.

It seems a real coup. He seemingly had some exciting proposals on the table.

After much turmoil, Tottenham need to make an announcement.

It appears it may be close.
