Report shares fee PSG would need to pay to land Conte from Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur would demand at least £12.7 million in compensation should Paris Saint-Germain look to appoint Antonio Conte as their next manager this summer, according to a report from Le 10 Sport in France.

Conte’s future is, once again, a talking point ahead of the end of the season. He has previously flirted with the idea of leaving the club. And it seems that he has given Spurs fans reason to monitor what happens with Mauricio Pochettino at Parc des Princes.

Reports have claimed that Conte has offered himself to PSG with Pochettino expected to be sacked.

It must be noted that there are also claims that the Italian has not made contact with the Ligue 1 champions. So it is not yet clear just what is likely to happen if Pochettino does indeed move on.

Le 10 Sport have suggested that there has been no contact between Conte and PSG. But he is indeed a name on their radar, along with Zinedine Zidane.

However, there are hurdles. And Le 10 Sport reports that Tottenham would be due at least £12.7 million (€15 million) in compensation if PSG appointed Conte this summer.

Tottenham fans will grow tired of Antonio Conte speculation at some stage amid PSG rumours

Keeping Conte at Tottenham looks hugely important. He is an ‘incredible‘ manager. And Spurs have clearly made progress during his tenure.

But some may roll their eyes about the links emerging after they have failed to win their last two. A massive summer lies ahead. And it is becoming clear just how much work is needed over the coming months.

So you have to wonder if Conte has one eye on using the PSG links to strengthen his hand at Tottenham. If they cannot give him what he wants, he may look more seriously at opportunities elsewhere.

That may not be the case at all. But at some stage, supporters will grow tired of Conte being linked with other jobs – particularly if there are rumours that he is prepared to go.
