Paulo Fonseca and Fabio Paratici have it all planned for Spurs!

First of all, Paulo Fonseca is set to be announced as our new manager this week. His appointment will follow from Paratici’s arrival as director of football, who will oversee Tottenham’s work in the transfer market.

Fabio Paratici and Paulo Fonseca have agreed on what they first want to do at our club in this year’s summer transfer window. The pair have already started work on building a coaching staff to work with Fonseca.

Reports suggest that an agreement is in place for Fonseca to take charge at N17. The report also adds that signing a new centre-back this summer will also be the first transfer priority.

Mourinho had trouble getting his preferred centre-back partnership last season as Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon and Toby Alderweireld were all tried out with little success. We already have close to £20million incoming this summer to help fund a move for a new centre-back. Juan Foyth will join Villareal permanently with the La Liga outfit paying £12.8million while another £5m coming from Marcus Edwards joining Sporting Lisbon from Vitoria due to a 50 per cent sell-on clause. Joachim Anderson and Nikola Milenkovic are touted as possible targets, but Paratici may well have other options.

There have also been numerous reports linking Sanchez with a move away from Tottenham. A replacement for Serge Aurier is also on the agenda, with the 28-year-old close to joining Paris Saint-Germain. Then there is a decision to be made on Paulo Gazzaniga, who was sent out on loan to Elche last season. Joe Hart has one year left on his contract, as does Hugo Lloris, meaning Fonseca will need to resolve the goalkeeping problem urgently.

So there is a lot to do for the pair. Any slip-ups or failures will reverberate back to them and Levy and the board. For a supposedly top-six club, our last two seasons have been unacceptable. Finishing 6th and 7th respectively. The fans are baying for blood already, and they don’t need any excuses to show their anger at those in charge. A packed crowd of booing is going to create a hostile atmosphere.

All the best, Glenn
