Paratici to snub Tottenham approach

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici is set to snub the advances of Tottenham and stay with the Italian champions, Clubcall reports.

Spurs officials are looking for a new executive to work closely with Andre Villas-Boas and the Tottenham manager has earmarked Paratici as a possible candidate. The latest reports from Italy suggest the 40 year old will pen a new deal with the Old Lady until June 2015 and dismiss any rumours about moving to White Hart Lane. Paratici, a former player, has been in his role with Juventus since 2010 when he moved from Sampdoria.

Tottenham’s attempts to sign a new sporting director have proved fruitless so far with Roma’s Franco Baldini rejecting an offer from the Spurs board. The former England general manager has refused to turn his back on Roma’s wealthy owners after their poor start to the season which has seen them slump to ninth in the table.

Baldini worked with Fabio Capello in the England setup and given that Spurs fired chief scout Ian Broomfield two weeks ago, the move for a technical director will replace the role Broomfield held. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is now scouring Europe for another candidate having been knocked back by Baldini and Paratici from Italy.
