Tottenham Hotspur approached Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte
Posted On May 5, 2021
According to Corriere dello Sport, Tottenham Hotspur have approached Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte to become their permanent boss this summer. The Italian outlet claimed that talks were held last month after Jose Mourinho’s sacking, and the two sides discussed the current Spurs squad and the potential reinforcements needed for next season. However, Conte is not necessarily looking to leave Inter this summer and will speak with the owners at the end of the campaign about plans for the future. The former Chelsea boss won the Premier League title in two seasons at Stamford Bridge, and he could be tempted to return to England if he leaves Inter.
Conte’s current contract with the Nerazzurri runs until 2022 and he earns around € 13million after tax. The Italian is a big fan of Tottenham hitman Harry Kane, admitting to Chelsea that if he could buy a striker in the world it would be the England international. While he will likely stay at San Siro beyond this season, the opportunity to finally work with the Spurs star could give him some thought to the prospects of joining the North Londoners.
Conte dubbed Kane a complete striker, praising him for his physical strength and ability with and without the ball. His aerial prowess and complete game also impressed the Inter boss who has since landed a striker similar to Romelu Lukaku.
