Reports: Conte set to take over at Spurs and has been promised money to spend

Tottenham look on course to appoint Antonio Conte as their new manager.

Reports suggest the former Chelsea boss, who recently left Inter Milan, is close to agreeing a return to London.

The Daily Telegraph say Spurs are increasingly confident that they will be able to install Conte, who has also been linked with Real Madrid.

The Daily Mirror reports that Conte’s contract could be worth up to £15m a year and that he has been promised significant funds to sign new players by chairman Daniel Levy.

It comes after former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was linked with a return to the north London club.

Pochettino is reported to have indicated to Paris St-Germain – where he has two years remaining on his contract – that he would like to go back to Spurs.

However, PSG sporting director Leonardo has insisted that Pochettino will be staying with the French outfit.

The Sun reports that Spurs are focusing on hiring Conte after accepting they will not be able to get Pochettino back.

Leonardo is quoted as saying: “The rumours around Pochettino are tiring. I speak with him every day to prepare for next season.

“He has two years of contract and we are very happy with his work.”
