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.
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.
Tottenham are NOT intentioned to cover the economic difference on fiscal side with Fonseca – he was set to sign after contract verbally agreed, it was done… but talks have now broken down. ❌⚪️ #THFC
Tottenham search now restarted. Jorge Mendes will try with Gattuso. @SkySport
