Paulo Fonseca agrees to become the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are set to appoint Paulo Fonseca as their new manager this week on an expected three-year deal. Spurs’ new director of football, Fabio Paratici, made a move for the former Roma manager following the collapse of talks with former Chelsea and Inter manager Antonio Conte.

Talks have progressed well over the weekend with Fonseca agreeing in principle to take over at Spurs, where he will replace José Mourinho, the manager who has succeeded him at Roma.

The move to appoint Conte, who departed Inter despite taking them to the Serie A title, broke down as Spurs became concerned over the Italian’s demands and whether he would commit to blooding young players.

Fonseca is expected to be unveiled by Tottenham possibly as soon as Wednesday. The deal is expected to be structured in an initial two-year contract with an option for another season.
