After briefly flirting with the idea of taking Mauricio Pochettino back to north London, Levy turned his focus to convincing Conte to become the next Tottenham manager.

 

The negotiations were progressing well until recently and there were claims that Conte is mostly likely to become the next manager at the north London club.

 

 

But it has been claimed that a few roadblocks have now appeared on the horizon in Tottenham’s pursuit of the former Chelsea manager.

 

And according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.it, Levy has slowed down his pursuit of Conte due to the demands he has made on a few fronts.

 

 

It has been claimed Conte’s wage expectations have played a role in slowing down the negotiations.

 

But the key factor is said to be the demands Conte has made on the transfer kitty he wants and the kind of players he is keen to bring in at Tottenham this summer.

 

 

Tottenham are being forced to manage a massive debt and are unlikely to have the funds to compete with the other big clubs in the Premier League.

 

It has been claimed that the negotiations are not off but Tottenham are now reflecting on whether to press ahead with their idea of hiring Conte.

 

The experienced Italian tactician has other offers on his table and may be unlikely to wait forever for Tottenham to make up their mind.
