Antonio Conte agrees 18-month Tottenham deal as Spurs almost ready to unveil new manager

According to reports, Antonio Conte has agreed to join Tottenham as the club’s new manager on an 18-month contract, with only a few minor details remaining to be worked out. 

The Italian manager is said to be in talks with Tottenham over a deal to replace Nuno Espirito Santo, who was fired on Monday morning.

Following Tottenham’s defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, the latter was fired after only four months in charge.

Spurs moved quickly to entice Conte, who left Inter Milan at the end of last season after leading them to the Serie A title, to take over in north London.

The 52-year-old was approached over the summer prior to Nuno’s arrival, but was unable to reach an agreement with the club and has been out of work since.

However, it appears that the wheels are finally in motion for Conte to join Spurs in the coming days.

According to Fabrizio Romano, a deal until the summer of 2023 has been all but sealed, with only a few details remaining to be worked out before Conte’s appointment can be officially confirmed.

According to reports, the former Inter manager is currently in London hammering out the remaining clauses, despite the fact that the vast majority of the deal has already been agreed upon.

He is said to be ‘waiting’ to sign the contract that will confirm him as Nuno’s permanent replacement ahead of Tottenham’s next match against Vitesse on Thursday.

Conte’s decision would be a significant change of heart after he turned down the same job in pre-season.

He was said to have turned down the opportunity to manage Tottenham Hotspur after becoming concerned about the club’s lack of ambition in June.

Conte later stated that he would only accept jobs if he was completely convinced by the projects on offer.

“The market, the results achieved, the work done over the years make the figures,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“But beyond this, let me say that if my problem or my obsession was money, in the past I would have stayed where I was.

“I would have accepted compromises and perhaps obtained new contracts, which can act as a golden umbrella.

“But instead I look at the projects and I’m willing to stay at home if they don’t convince me.

“It is a question of vision, seriousness, intellectual honesty and principles from which I do not deviate.”

Conte was linked with the United job last week, but under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer extended his reprieve with a comfortable win over Tottenham on Saturday.

A move to Old Trafford appears to be out of the question for the Italian, who appears to be on his way back to the Premier League with Spurs.
