Super-agent says how Spurs can keep Conte beyond this season

Tottenham are currently battling for Champions League qualification and will be hoping to keep Antonio Conte beyond this season.

Conte has drastically improved Tottenham after a disappointing start to the season, and they look set to battle until the final day to finish in the top four. Finishing outside the Champions League spots could force Conte to reconsider his position at Tottenham, but football agent Rob Segal believes it won’t be the deciding factor.

“On the subject of Spurs – manager wise, I think a lot will depend on assurances from Daniel Levy. Whether they’re in the Champions League or not probably won’t matter too much. The Champions League isn’t really enough on its own for Conte anyway – he lives for winning leagues,” said Segal, speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside.

Conte is a born winner, and his passion and determination are evident on the sidelines. The Champions League may not be a deciding factor, but Conte will be wanting the powers that be to back him in the transfer market, for them to push on next season.

“What the club may have to do is put it all in the hands of Fabio Paratici and let him try and do some dealings both in and out and make sure it all gets reinvested back into the team. I suspect Spurs will be one of the busiest clubs this summer. Levy will know the club needs to be sensible though,” added Segal.

Spurs have many players with sell-on value in the squad, so a huge overhaul could be planned in the summer. Investing hundreds of millions without recouping any money from player sales isn’t a sustainable transfer plan, but they will need signings this summer if they want to fulfil Conte’s wishes of battling for the league title.

“Although Conte’s future could be considered a bit up in the air when it comes to Harry Kane – he will stay this summer. I believe Spurs will support him but other players will go. They’ve got to get rid of five or six players and if they were able to offload that many, everyone will benefit. The players will benefit and so will the club. But the same problem comes back again, finding homes for these players isn’t easy,” said Segal.

If Spurs can keep hold of Kane, this is bound to please Conte. The England international is pivotal to how Spurs play and losing a player of his calibre could have a devastating effect on the club.

Not only losing Kane for his ability, but it will make it difficult to attract players if they are willing to let their best player leave. Although Tottenham are likely to receive a significant fee for Kane, replacing him adequately and strengthening the rest of the team with that money might not be as easy as it seems.
