Antonio Conte has confirmed that he will have a meeting with Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici during the World Cup break in order to assess Tottenham’s start to the season.
It is a rather unique campaign this time around with the World Cup in Qatar being held right in the middle of the normal Premier League schedule. And with players potentially suffering from injury and fatigue at the tournament, the January transfer window could be more important than ever.
Dean Jones told GiveMeSport this week that Conte would hold contract talks with Tottenham over the coming weeks, and will lay out exactly what he needs to improve the team.
While Conte did not confirm the meeting with Levy and Paratici would include any talks over a new deal, the Spurs boss did admit he would sit down with the duo in the near future.
He said (Football London): “Until now we haven’t spoken. After the first part of the season, it’s right to have a meeting and discuss the positive and negative things and what we can improve.
“For sure we will speak and have a good evaluation about where we are in the first half of the season. I have seen a lot of positive things but with injuries and so many games we have struggled a lot. We have to improve in the future.
“Every time we speak we always speak together. They are always good conversations.
“The target is only one, to improve, on and off the pitch and then find the best solution in every moment. Until now we’ve worked with only this target to improve and find a good way to bring this club forward.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Contract talks are going to be difficult at the moment. With the World Cup coming up, certain players leaving, and the January window on the horizon, there are so many jobs for Tottenham to get done. But I suspect Levy won’t want to spend huge money unless he knows Conte is staying.
