Antonio Conte’s links to Pais Saint Germain have been cleared by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
Earlier in the week, there had been reports that Conte had made himself available for PSG who are on the verge of parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino with the Argentine set to return to Spurs.
But speaking on the Here We Go Podcast (h/t Spurs Web), Romano said: “The first thing I want to clarify on this Antonio Conte story is regarding the rumors you are reading around England, France, wherever are not from Antonio.
“If you think of what happened in November with Nuno and the rebuilding of everything at Tottenham so that’s why for Antonio now the focus is on the pitch and for these really complicated final games and then, as he has always said at the end of the season he will discuss with the club, Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici.
“Antonio will be really clear because he is convinced, Champions League or not to continue with Tottenham they need to have something important. It means new signings, it means new contracts for important players.
“So that is why you can read many rumours which is of course normal for Paris Saint-Germain to consider other managers because the rumours of Pochettino being close to leaving the club are true.
“So for Mauricio Pochettino there are new chances to leave the club at the end of the season and we are waiting for communications from Paris Saint-Germain and this has been in the air since February so for Pochettino it seems clear.”
Pochettino is said to be in constant communication with the Spurs chairman and after missing the Man United job, he wants to return to England with Spurs.
