Earlier on Friday, we covered an article from Calciomercato about Walter Sabatini and the possibility of a move for him to Tottenham.
The former AS Roma director of football, who left at the beginning of last month, was reportedly invited by the London club to watch their Champions League game against Bayer Leverkusen at Wembley, and Il Tempo have backed this up with a bit more detail.
The Rome based newspaper report the 61-year-old was present at the game alongside Frank Trimboli, who works for Base Soccer Agency, as well as an unnamed Italian agent.
There’s no mention of Daniel Levy by name, but if there’s truth in the invitation coming from Tottenham then he’ll obviously be involved.
Considering Sabatini wasn’t there to talk about specific players, considering he is out of a job, the agents can only have been there for his personal needs.
Tottenham and Sabatini know each other well from their negotiations regarding Erik Lamela’s transfer from Roma to London, as well as the Federico Fazio loan, who went the other way this summer.
Il Tempo report the director of football returned to Rome on Friday, with no new job in hand, but refused to exclude a ‘future collaboration’ with the English club in the future.
After all, you don’t meet up with Tottenham directors with two intermediaries at your side just for a pint and a game of football, do you?
