Tottenham Hotspur have to appoint a new manager and a sporting director after Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici left the Premier League side in the last two months.

A month after Conte was shown the exit door, Paratici left Spurs after he was unsuccessful with an appeal against his ban on carrying out certain football activities.

Tottenham have looked at Barcelona chief Jordi Cruyff to become their next sporting director, according to La Vanguardia.

On Tuesday, the La Liga side confirmed their sporting director will leave on June 30th. Earlier that day, reports said Mateu Alemany, who had earlier decided to leave Barcelona, has changed his mind and will continue at the Camp Nou.

Barca sources have told the newspaper there’s no tension between Cruyff and Alemany. This has been backed up by the Dutchman’s entourage, who also insist he hasn’t received any offers from other clubs so far.

At the same time, the 49-year-old’s entourage state he has received interest from Tottenham to become their new sporting director.

La Vanguardia describe Cruyff as a ‘football man in all its facets’ and he ‘hasn’t ruled out’ the option to take charge at another club. His decision will ‘depend on the projects and what his instinct tells him’.

Even though Tottenham have registered their interest in Cruyff, their project needs to be convincing for him to arrive in north London.
