In a bizarre turn of events, Paulo Fonseca may not become the next Tottenham Hotspur manager.
First, check some of the tweets from reliable journalists:
I’m hearing Fonseca and Tottenham could be off. Unbelievable

Tottenham are NOT intentioned to cover the economic difference on fiscal side with Fonseca – he was set to sign after contract verbally agreed, it was done… but talks have now broken down. ❌⚪️ #THFC
Tottenham search now restarted. Jorge Mendes will try with Gattuso. @SkySport

Tottenham fans must be thinking — is this some kind of joke?
The north London club have been without a permanent manager since Jose Mourinho left the club.
They have been linked with dozens of managers including Antonio Conte. But one reason or the other, Daniel Levy has found it difficult to appoint the right people.
Paulo Fonseca has been touted to become the next manager for Spurs. He was the one whom Mourinho replaced him at AS Roma, so he wasn’t a popular choice right among the fan base.
According to Di Marzio, the negotiations between the former Roma coach and Spurs have stalled due to tax reasons.
Fonseca was set to sign for Spurs after verbally agreed to become their manager. It was almost done, but talks have now broken down.
AC Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso has been identified as the ideal profile for the managerial role.
Spurs are certainly not showing proper ambitions in the market and such aimless moves will only make Harry Kane more disillusioned about the club, if not already.
