The BBC, Sky Sports and The Guardian reported negotiations between Conte and Tottenham ground to a halt over the Italian manager’s demands to reshape the squad and whether he would commit to developing young players for the future.
Paris St Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked by Tottenham in November 2019, has also been linked by the media with a switch back to the London club.

Tottenham finished seventh in the Premier League under interim manager Ryan Mason.
