Tottenham ‘reopen talks with Nagelsmann for manager’s job but German coach demands assurance over key appointment’
JULIAN NAGELSMANN is reportedly back in the running to be Tottenham manager but he is demanding assurances over the club’s new sporting director.
The German, 35, was the leading contender to become permanent successor to Antonio Conte, who left the club in March.

But Spurs appeared to have decided against making a move for Nagelsmann and insisted that they had NOT met the ex-Bayern Munich boss.
However, now The Times says that talks have “resumed” but Nagelsmann “wants to know who will replace Fabio Paratici before committing himself” to the Premier League club.
The Italian has been hit with a worldwide ban by Fifa which led to his enforced resignation from his position as managing director of football at Spurs.
This fresh update states that Nagelsmann is “understood to have recommended candidates for the job” to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
His agent has previously claimed that his client, who was axed by Bayern Munich in March, snubbed talks with Chelsea to replace Graham Potter as the Blues were in “troubled waters”.
That was as well as him having concerns over “their transfer policy” and “other issues”.
Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krosche, who worked with Nagelsmann at Leipzig, is one contender to replace Paratici.
Brentford’s technical director, Lee Dykes, and Roma general manager, Tiago Pinto, are also believed to be in the running for the job.

Spurs have been without a permanent boss since Conte departed on March 27, 47 days ago.
The Italian’s assistant Cristian Stellini was handed the reins on an interim basis until he himself was sacked following the 6-1 defeat at Newcastle last month and replaced by Ryan Mason until the end of the season.
