Report details the astronomical wages Spurs have offered Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking to hire Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte, and a new report from Italian newspaper La Stampa details the astronomical wages Spurs have tabled to lure him to London.

Conte, 51, is fresh from winning the Serie A title with Inter. He has guided the Nerrazzuri well above the challenge of Juventus, Atalanta and Milan, but is set to see his £215,000-a-week (La Stampa) contract end in 2022.

Now, it is claimed Sours have made an offer to sign Conte. Following on from reports earlier this week that Spurs are ‘crazy’ for Conte, it is now said an offer has been tabled – worth between £13m and £17m a year.

In per week terms, that would see Conte earn between an enormous £250,000 and £325,000 a week – if the reports are believed to be true. It seems Spurs are indeed, ‘crazy’ to hire the former Chelsea gaffer.

Conte wages a small prce to pay if Tottenham get Champions League

If Conte can take Tottenham into the top four of the Premier League this season, then his potentially huge wages are a small price to pay. It means Spurs have the best-possible manager at the helm, but he needs backing.

In the transfer market, that is. Spurs need one, if not two excellent centre-backs. They also need a right-back and a new goalkeeper. A midfielder. A replacement for Gareth Bale, and possible a replacement for Harry Kane.

A big, big summer awaits whoever takes charge. If Conte gets backed by Daniel Levy in the window, then his wages pail into insignificance. It would be a small drop in the ocean compared to the money earned for Champions League football.
