Report: What Antonio Conte has just told Daniel Levy in private Tottenham transfer meeting yesterday
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, sporting director Fabio Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy all sat down for a private meeting yesterday to discuss plans for the future, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.
Spurs beat the odds and finished fourth in the recently concluded campaign. Arsenal were in the driving seat to get there, but Tottenham stepped up when it was most needed and snatched Champions League football away from the hands of their fierce North London rivals.
One of the biggest reasons why Spurs are so good is Conte. The Italian has well and truly transformed the club, and it’s now Levy’s turn to back him in the transfer market to help take Tottenham to the next level.
The agenda of the meeting yesterday was exactly that, and Conte has reportedly laid out his demands.
What Antonio Conte told Daniel Levy in Tottenham meeting
Conte has repeatedly said over the last few months that his future will be decided after a meeting with Tottenham chiefs at the end of the season. It looks like the outcome of that meeting is a positive one.
The report claims that the Italian made it clear to Levy that he wants four to five new signings who are fully ready to be a part of the first team as opposed to the club’s policy of signing youngsters who have the potential to become stars.
It has been claimed that Tottenham are ready to accept those demands now and thus, Conte will remain Spurs’ manager for next season – ‘barring sensational reversals’.
The report also claims that there is a ‘will to move forward together’ between Conte and Tottenham, which is excellent news for Spurs fans.
Huge boost for Spurs
Retaining Harry Kane’s services has been Tottenham’s most important task in every transfer window over the last few years, but this summer, that was arguably the second priority.
Keeping hold of Conte is more important for Tottenham than anything else at the moment, and it looks like Levy has agreed to the Italian’s demands.
The summer transfer window is still a few weeks away and a lot could still change, especially if Paris Saint-Germain come calling to lure Conte away from North London.
However, the early news is a positive one for Tottenham, which makes the future really exciting.
