While Tuesday was a very Everton heavy day due to the sudden departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, Wednesday afternoon is all about Tottenham.
It all started with Sky Italia reporting that Spurs were in ‘advanced talks’ with the former Inter manager, followed by TuttoMercatoWeb claiming that a ‘concrete’ offer had been made to Fabio Paratici to take over as director of football.
This has all since been confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio, who took to his website to explain the situation, reporting that there is currently a €3m difference between Tottenham’s proposal to Conte and his demands.
Regarding Paratici, it’s stated an offer has been made, and the north London side are simply awaiting his reply.
If that wasn’t enough, Calciomercato weigh in on the situation, explaining that Conte has now overtaken Erik Ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino, with talks underway ‘even if there is still no agreement at the moment’.
A few things need to be ‘clarified’ in order to secure the Italian’s services, as it’s made clear the ex-Chelsea man ‘would absolutely not want the sale of Harry Kane and subsequent weakening of the team’.
On top of that, the wages are still an issue, which corroborates what Di Marzio said in his article.
