In the latest Tottenham manager search twist, the deal to bring Paulo Fonseca to North London has apparently fallen through at the final hurdle.

As such, Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Spurs will once again restart their search almost two months after sacking Jose Mourinho back in April.

Numerous names have come and gone in the following weeks and months, yet no one has signed on the dotted line for Tottenham.

The Daily Mail claimed that Julian Nagelsmann was Tottenham’s first choice to replace Mourinho but he ended up joining Bayern Munich.

Spurs also held talks with Erik ten Hag, held talks with Mauricio Pochettino, and held talks with Antonio Conte. The first two remained at their current jobs and the latter remains out of work.

It was reported by Gianluca Di Marzio today that the Fonseca deal had fallen through due to financial issues surrounding the appointment.

Sky Sports Italia have now reported that Gennaro Gattuso could be next in line for Spurs, although Romano believes the search has restarted with Gattuso as an option.
