It’s been a few exhausting months for Tottenham Hotspur as they first faced a major backlash in May after the European Super League fiasco and then they sacked their head coach Jose Mourinho after a string of poor results and Ryan Mason was put in charge as the interim manager.
Their star striker Harry Kane reportedly asked the club to leave this summer but in the middle of all this, there’s some sign of relief for Spurs as they have Nuno Espírito Santo on a two-year deal until 2023.
Spurs also signed Fabio Paratici as their new Director of Football and he desperately wanted Conte as he had previously worked with him during his Juventus days but Conte was not convinced by Spurs project and their plans. The club then targeted Fonseca and he was nearly close to joining the club but the deal collapsed as the former Roma manager had tax issues in Italy which prevented him from taking a job in England.
After all the failed attempts, the club’s managerial saga came to an end when the former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Santo signed for the club. Santo was sacked by the Wolves at the end of this season as the club finished 13th.
Nuno had previously managed Porto and Valencia but didn’t taste success but it all changed when he was signed by EFL Championship side Wolves and led his side into the Premier League after six years in 2018. During his first two seasons, his newly-promoted side finished 7th in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 season. Wolves also reached clinched the UEFA Europa League spot in the 2019-20 season and reached the quarterfinals of the European club competition.
Nuno earned $3.6 million per season at Wolves and it looks like Spurs must have offered him a bigger contract and salary than his previous club.
Reports are also emerging that Heung Min Son will extend his contract at the club and is at the last stage of his agreement.
However, Nuno’s biggest task would be to convince Spurs talisman Harry Kane who expressed his desire to leave the club last month after the Spurs failed to book a spot in the Champions League for the last two seasons. Manchester City are the favourites to sign the striker and they also offered £100 million for the player but the bid was rejected by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy as they are still trying to convince him.
