Nagelsmann Reveals Tottenham Answer as Levy Is Forced Into Major Double Climbdown

    Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly optimistic about persuading Julian Nagelsmann to become their new manager, but the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy, will need to give in to two demands if they are to land the German coach.

    The North London club’s season has descended into chaos following the sacking of interim coach Cristian Stellini after only 28 days, and Spurs are now searching for a quality new appointment quickly. With options running out, Spurs appear to be honing in on two options: Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique. However, Nagelsmann has indicated that he wants a contract from June 1, once the current season is over, and full control over transfers, which could be a major climbdown for Levy.

    According to reliable independent journalist Miguel Delaney, Levy is ready to make a strong, fresh push for Nagelsmann. It seems the German, who was dismissed earlier this season by Bayern Munich, is ready to open talks with Tottenham to hear their plans. But he does not want the wreckage of the 2022/23 season attached to his name. Furthermore, Nagelsmann wants to have a ‘decisive say’ on who the club targets and sells, and while he remains open to a director of football coming in, it would be a person of his choosing.

    Should a move for Nagelsmann fail, it is likely Tottenham will move for their fourth choice: Arne Slot, who looks set to guide Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title. However, Nagelsmann’s potential appointment could be a game-changer for the North London club. The young German coach is one of the most highly-rated managers in Europe and has been linked with some of the biggest clubs on the continent.

    Tottenham’s season has been a disaster, and Levy is under serious pressure to get a quality new appointment in as soon as possible. Fans had hoped to see the return of Mauricio Pochettino, but he looks set to move to Tottenham’s London rivals, Chelsea. The club’s search for a new manager has been complicated by the departure of sporting director Fabio Paratici, who was prevented from continuing in the job. Spurs must act fast if they are to avoid another season of chaos, and Nagelsmann could be the man to turn things around. However, it remains to be seen if Levy is willing to give in to his demands.
