Since Jose Mourinho was sacked by Daniel Levy there have been talks with Antonio Conte that collapsed and now Spurs see Paulo Fonseca talks collapse with Fabrizio Romano tweeting that talks with the former Roma manager have broken down with Spurs not wiling to match the fiscal demands of Fonseca;
Paulo Fonseca to Tottenham is 100% OFF. Deal collapsed because of taxes issues despite contract already completed and set to be signed – Fonseca had tax advantages from an Italian law which is not applicable in the UK 🚨⚪️ #THFC
Spurs in talks with Gattuso now, as per @DiMarzio.

Tottenham Hotspur Miss Out as Paulo Fonseca Talks Collapse
Tottenham Left Searching for New Manager as Another Walks Away
Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca have all been rumoured at some stage in the past few months to be taking over as the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur to replace Mourinho, but still no manager has materialised.
A verbal agreement was already said to be in place between the club and Fonseca with an announcement imminent following Spurs’ confirmation of Fabio Paratici as new director of football, but now Spurs must yet again start their search.
It is believed that Tottenham and Fonseca are too far apart in their idea of wages and that has led to the talks ending.
Gennaro Gattuso Next on Tottenham’s List
In an incredible turn of events, Gennaro Gattuso is now said to be in talks over a two year deal to become the next manager of Spurs after he left Fiorentina just 23 days as head coach. Despite becoming manager there was a dispute over player transfers with Gattuso’s requested transfer targets being of higher value than those that the club were willing to pay for according to Sky Sports.
If affordable transfers caused an issue for Gattuso at Fiorentina, it will be hard to imagine that he would be able to work with the very frugal Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
With time passing by, Tottenham are in danger of not having a manager in place ahead of the new Premier League season which begins on August 14th.
