Tottenham Hotspur: Insider issues details of Conte’s behind-scenes meeting

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Insider issues details of Conte’s behind-scenes meeting

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is going to have a meeting with Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy ahead of the summer – with his future in mind. 

This is according to journalist Dean Jones, who has been speaking to This Is Futbol amid the 2021/22 Premier League run-in.

Conte’s future is one of the biggest talking points in European football right now, with recent reports from France claiming the 52-year-old has his eyes on a possible vacancy at Paris Saint-Germain – something he denied in his latest press conference.

However, Jones feels there is still a lot Spurs can do to keep the Italian in north London for the 2022/23 campaign, with a transfer meeting potentially a huge deciding factor.

The Italian was open in his criticism of Tottenham’s January transfer window, and with very little between Spurs and Arsenal at present, Jones feels a big summer of transfers will be on Conte’s agenda.

He said: “Ultimately, it’s going to come down to the end of the season.

“Conte’s going to have a meeting with Daniel Levy and Paratici, see how the land lies, see where Tottenham finished in the table, see what their budget is, and see whether they can fulfil all the needs and expectations that he has as manager going into the next year of his contract.”

TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…

Reports have already suggested Conte has a target in mind of around six new arrivals in the summer as he looks to continue the development at Hotspur Way.

Given Tottenham’s awful start to the season under Nuno Espirito Santo, it is pretty impressive to see Spurs even within touching distance of the top four.

And this should only encourage Levy to back Conte in the summer, with more quality additions like Cristian Romero potentially taking Spurs to the level Conte expects.
