One of the best sporting directors in all of Europe, the outgoing Juve chief is linked with a move to north London.

Outgoing Juventus chief Fabio Paratici remains tight-lipped on his future amid links to Tottenham.

Paratici has been one of the most influential figures behind the scenes for Juventus in the past decade. Having held a number of positions including Sporting Director, Chief Football Officer, and Managing Director of the Football Area, he was crucial to their domestic domination.

The 48-year-old was responsible for bringing in the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Matthijs De Ligt, Sami Khedira, among others, at the Allianz Stadium.

After 11 years in Turin, the Italian is now ready to embark on a new journey. Premier League is expected to be his next destination, with Tottenham reportedly pushing to secure his services.

“I don’t think this is the right time to talk about other clubs. It’s my Juventus farewell today,” Paratici said when asked to comment on the rumors in his farewell Juventus press conference on Friday, via Metro.

“My family hopes that I will find a job quickly though!

“Working at Juventus means becoming a better professional, a better person. I will go to another club. I hope I will share the same passion as I did here.”
