Tottenham manager Antonio Conte will be offered a deal until 2025, to keep him from the clutches of Europe's elite.

That's the talk of north London, with chairman Daniel Levy said to want to extend his manager's stay and increase his salary from £15 million to £20m. Conte only took over a year ago after a chastening 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester United marked Nuno Espirito Santo's card.

Last night, Tottenham were beaten once more by United but the club are said to be impressed with Conte's progress, after the 53-year-old took them into the Champions League at the expense of arch-rivals, Arsenal.

According to La Repubblica (via Sport Witness (opens in new tab)), Tottenham want to "lock down" Conte until 2025 – but partly over the interest that the Italian has over other clubs.

The report says that he's waiting to see if jobs at either Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain become available. 

Conte was previously linked with a move to Juventus recently to return to Turin and replace the under-fire Massimiliano Allegri. When asked about the rumours ahead of the United fixture, Conte replied, "My contract in this moment is not important."

Conte's average club tenure is just over a year, according to Transfermarkt (opens in new tab)
