Football London have revealed that Tottenham’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici often likes to negotiate deals for as many as ten different players at one time.
The report claims that Paratici will often find a load of candidates, negotiate for as many as ten, with some reaching an advanced stage, then pick just one to fill a position at the end of the process.
It appears that the former Juventus man likes to have options at his disposal from the very start of the process until the final signing.
The report says that this style can result in disappointed players and agents, but can also help to keep prices and wages down.
As an example, Football London look towards the centre-back position in North London, claiming that Spurs want to sign one or two new players.
It is said that Paratici is currently looking at Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, Wolfsburg’s Maxence Lacroix, Lyon’s Joachim Andersen, Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar, Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu and others on his list.
Spurs Web Opinion:
It appears that there is no risk of not signing players under Fabio Paratici as there is always a second, third and fourth option. However, it feels as though this approach could make players less inclined to push for talks with the North London club.
