Report: Tottenham really keen on 51-year-old manager set to leave current position

Tottenham are reportedly really keen on recruiting Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte as their manager search continues.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Premier League side Spurs are “crazy” about trying to appoint the 51-year-old Italian as their next full-time manager. 

The report states that his time with Inter is practically over and that he’s due to depart with one year still remaining on his contract.

Conte masterminded Inter’s Serie A title win this season, as they finished up with 91 points over the course of a 38-game league season.

He’s been in charge at the San Siro for two years, boasting a great 63 per cent win record during 102 matches in charge.

Spurs have already had one ex-Chelsea manager in the shape of recently sacked Jose Mourinho, who left north London in April, and interim boss Ryan Mason took charge for the rest of the campaign.

Long Tottenham drought can end with right manager

Conte has an extremely impressive CV, so if he does leave Inter this summer there should be a swarm of top clubs trying to appoint him. 

The intense manager, who wears his heart on his sleeve with such passion on the sidelines, could help Spurs end their long trophy drought if he moved back to England.

He won a Premier League title and FA Cup during two years with Chelsea. Additionally, he’s won four Serie A titles (three Juventus, one Inter). 

Conte is a Spurs-linked manager fans can be excited by.
