Fabrizio Romano has played down talk of Antonio Conte leaving Tottenham and insists he is focused on the club’s battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Conte has been the subject of intense links with Paris Saint-Germain over the last week with Mauricio Pochettino’s position allegedly under increasing threat (Le Parisien).
The 52-year-old has labelled the rumours as ‘fake news’ and again reiterated his intention to talk with Spurs at the end of the season to clarify his future (Sky Sports).
And Romano has echoed Conte’s current stance by claiming the Italian only has eyes on the Premier League top-four race.
The transfer guru added that Conte would celebrate securing a Champions League berth ‘like a league title’ if Spurs achieved it with five games of the campaign remaining.
He said on FIVE: “He’s now focusing on the Champions League race. I’m told that for Antonio, Champions League for Tottenham this season would be like a title for Antonio Conte. He will say in public, ‘This is like a title for me’.”

The rumours have come at a less than ideal time with Spurs still having something to play for this season but no doubt Conte is still focused on the task at hand.
A manager like him will always be linked elsewhere anywhere as that has been the case throughout his whole career.
