Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is set for an uncomfortable meeting with Daniel Levy ahead of the summer transfer window.
This has been suggested by reliable Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold, who has been speaking about the upcoming meeting between the pair on his YouTube channel.
Do you expect Levy to back Conte this summer?
Speculation surrounding the Italian’s future has centred around what will be provided to the 52-year-old this summer in the transfer window.
Conte did not bite his tongue after the January window, where he felt the Lilywhites failed to improve their squad with the additions of just two players in Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur.
And with Gold believing there has been no manager before Conte who has spoken his mind so freely to Levy, an uncomfortable meeting may lie ahead.
He said: “If it needs someone like Conte to come in and say some things that are, you know, home truths and frank words, it happens. I’m sure no one’s going to have hard feelings over it. I don’t get the impression that Daniel Levy is someone that has hard feelings over stuff.
“So yeah, I’d imagine it’d be a slightly uncomfortable meeting, in terms of that sort of stuff.”
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
Champions League football is there to be had for the north London club on Sunday and we think this could make the meeting between Levy and Conte much easier.
The elite European competition would provide Spurs with a huge influx of revenue which would not have been there if they have to settle for a fifth-place finish.
However, we do feel regardless of where Spurs finish, Conte will have his targets and he will demand his expectations are met, with the Italian previously showing he will not stand for a club going against his wishes.

If Levy doesn’t back Conte, ENIC will have nowhere to go but to sell. Because none of the fans will support losing him! There is nobody on the planet we would rather have managing us.
There is a thought though, best ground, best manager. Why go through the pain of obtaining ALL of that, only to wimp out on putting the cash forward for the players Conte requests?
That would be like buying a Ferrari, insuring it with the best company you can and then not putting any petrol in it!
Daniel Levy et al simply have no option BUT to support Antonio.
