The Athletic have revealed there is no break clause in Antonio Conte’s contract with Tottenham, amidst reports linking the Italian to the Paris Saint-Germain job.

It emerged this week that PSG are looking for a replacement for Mauricio Pochettino and that Conte has offered himself to the Ligue 1 giants on a two-year contract (Le Parisien).

Sources from France have also suggested that Daniel Levy is in contact with Pochettino and is trying to convince the Argentine to return to the North London club (GFFN).

The Athletic have now explained that Conte’s future will depend on how committed the Spurs hierarchy are to overhauling the squad.

It is said that Conte feels the club need half a dozen summer signings to shake things up and that the Spurs head coach will have a meeting with Fabio Paratici and Levy at the end of the season to discuss the club’s ambition.

The report adds that there is no release clause in Conte’s contract which runs until the end of the 2022/23 campaign, meaning that any club who want the Italian will have to pay out the remainder of his deal.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am confident that Spurs will back Conte in a major way this summer, not least because Levy knows that his popularity has taken a major hit over recent years and he cannot afford another failed managerial appointment.

However, Conte is certainly no stranger to making unrealistic demands and there is obviously only so far the club would be willing to go as they have to balance short-term ambition with building for the long-term.
