Tottenham Hotspur are set for fresh talks with Antonio Conte this week over a new long-term contract.
Spurs want to tie Conte to a new deal, as his current one expires at the end of this season.
Talks started before the World Cup and were initially expected to resume last week, but managing director of football Fabio Paratici was busy. Now, they are scheduled to start again from today.
The Athletic reported in October that talks had already opened between Daniel Levy and Conte’s team over a new contract, with confidence at the club that Conte would sign a long-term deal on improved terms.
This week’s talks will not only be about the terms of any potential new contract, the salary, the length of the deal and the potential break clauses. Also on the table will be Tottenham’s ambitions and plans for the forthcoming January transfer window, with Conte especially keen to know that the club shares the same ambition to win that he does.
Conte only signed an 18-month contract when he signed for Tottenham in November 2021, although there is an option for the club to extend it by another year. Last season, he successfully steered them to fourth place in the Premier League. Spurs are currently also fourth, with 29 points from 15 games.
