Tottenham to appoint Conte as Nuno's replacement
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly close to appointing former Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, as their new head coach.
Reports coming from England suggests that the Italian who has been heavily linked with the Manchester United job will fly to London to complete the deal and could be announced today.
Recall that WuzupNigeria reported the sack of Nuno Espirito Santo as Spurs' manager on Monday morning, after just four months in charge of the London club.
Nuno's fate was decided after the 3-0 thrashing at the hands of underfire Man United, whose coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job is on the line.
According to respected Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, "Antonio Conte is ready to accept Tottenham proposal. Talks underway and understood to be ‘at final stages’ - salary and long term contract discussed but he seems convinced to say ‘yes’. Negotiations to continue in the next few hours in order to complete the agreement."
The 52 quit Inter Milan in May after just two seasons at the San Siro, having led them to their first Scudetto since 2009-10.
UK Sun reports that Conte was approached by Spurs' director of football Fabio Paratici, whom he previously worked with at Juventus, to replace Jose Mourinho in the summer.
And despite being close to agreeing a deal, negotiations broke down due to Conte's financial demands, which Levy reportedly felt were excessive.
