Tottenham: Big update on Fabio Paratici's Spurs future

Tottenham are confident that director of football Fabio Paratici will not walk away from the club, says journalist Dean Jones.

The 49-year-old only joined the north London outfit last summer but has been linked with a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

What is the latest news involving Paratici?

TUTTOmercatoWEB recently reported that PSG have made contact with Paratici over replacing their current sporting director Leonardo.

The Brazilian is under huge pressure following the French club’s recent Champions League defeat to Real Madrid which saw them bow out of the competition in the last-16 stage.

Prior to his role at Tottenham, Paratici worked at Juventus as their chief football officer for 11 years, helping the Old Lady to return to the top of Italian football.

Ultimately, his experience makes it no surprise that PSG are keen on bringing him to the Parc des Princes.

What has Jones said about Paratici’s future?

Jones, however, is not expecting Paratici to leave just yet, telling GIVEMESPORT that Tottenham are confident about retaining his services.

Speaking to GMS, the insider said: “They feel quite comfortable in the fact that Paratici’s not going to walk out at this stage.”

How has Tottenham’s transfer business been since Paratici’s arrival?

It has been hit and miss. There has definitely been some successes, with Dejan Kulusevski being the most recent.

The 21-year-old, who made the move from Juventus to Tottenham like Paratici, has made an instant impact in north London.

He was on fire against Manchester City last month, scoring and assisting in Spurs’ impressive 3-2 win at the Etihad before adding to that with another goal away at Leeds United.

Did Eric Dier score for Tottenham Hotspur on his Premier League debut for the club?

As for what Paratici and co got wrong, Bryan Gil is the first name that comes to mind. The Spaniard, who arrived at the club last summer when Nuno Espirito Santo was still in charge, has already left Antonio Conte’s squad, admitting the physical demands of the Premier League was too much for him.

“‘It [the physical level of the Premier League] shows a lot, really. It is a slightly higher level of intensity. I physically noticed it. The adaptation for me was difficult. It is a very physical football, back and forth,” the Valencia loanee told AS (via the MailOnline) earlier this month.

Whether Paratici himself will go down as a success remains to be seen, but he is obviously a good person to have on board, with Conte quite committed to tapping into Serie A for signings, a field they both know very well.
