Tottenham are set to offer Antonio Conte a massive pay day to try and convince the Italian to become their new manager, according to outlet La Stampa.
Less than four weeks after guiding Inter Milan to their first Serie A title for 11 years, Conte has left the the club following disagreements over finances at the San Siro and is now a free agent.
Conte’s Inter departure was officially confirmed on Wednesday afternoon, with Daniel Levy reportedly offering the 51-year-old a enormous package to return to the Premier League.
The former Chelsea boss has proved himself as a serial winner in recent seasons, leading Juventus to three consecutive league titles before winning the Premier League and FA Cup in his two years with Chelsea.
Conte then took a 12-month break before he became Inter boss and guided them to the Europa League final last season before winning Serie A last month.
And La Stampa believe that the figure being touted is £17million-a-year, significantly more than he’s been earning in the Italian capital.
Tottenham have been linked with a host of names over the past week, but none better than Conte. And if Levy can somehow get this one over the line, it would be some coup for Spurs.
