Spurs consider move to replace Conte with Nagelsmann who is ‘open to talks’



TOTTENHAM are considering a dramatic move for outgoing Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann.

And the 35-year-old is open to talks with Spurs, according to Sky Sports.

Spurs are set to axe Antonio Conte

Spurs are set to sack their current chief Antonio Conte and have been mulling over possible successors.

Nagelsmann, 35, has come into contention after his shock axing by Bayern, who appointed Thomas Tuchel as their new manager.

Ex-Chelsea gaffer Tuchel himself had been among the list of candidates to replace Conte at Spurs.


But SunSport revealed earlier this month the German had doubts about taking the post in North London.

Now the 49-year-old is out of the running after agreeing to join Bayern on a contract until 2025.

Nagelsmann has been liked by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy for some time and was a target in 2021 before he left RB Leipzig for Bayern.

And the feeling appears mutual, with The Telegraph reporting that Nagelsmann previously developed an affinity for the club and even owned a Spurs shirt.

However, it is unclear whether the wunderkind manager would want a break from the game following his ruthless sacking in Bavaria.


That may mean Spurs could have to wait until the summer to appoint him and put first-team coach Ryan Mason in caretaker charge until the end of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino and Luis Enrique – both currently out of work – are also being considered, along with Fulham chief Marco Silva and Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou.


Nagelsmann won the Bundesliga last season and leaves Bayern a point off the top of the table this term, having guided the German giants through to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Conte was still in Italy on Friday having left for his homeland on Sunday.

That came less than 24 hours after his explosive press conference following a 3-3 draw at Southampton, where he slammed his “selfish” players for throwing away a 3-1 lead.

The fiery Italian usually stays home to see his family for an extended period during international breaks.

But now there is no definitive date set for his return to Hotspur Way, if he is to come back at all.

The former Chelsea chief is not expected to still be at the club come Tottenham’s next game at Everton on April 3.
