Spurs failed to make a “spectacular” bid to make Julen Lopetegui their new head coach, according to Seville president Jose Castro. Spurs’ managerial search is now in its third month as they seek to succeed Jose Mourinho, who was sacked on April 19. After a bad series of shape. North Londoners were unable to secure a date despite holding talks with candidates including Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paolo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso. He led Sevilla to qualify for the Champions League next season by finishing fourth in the Spanish League. Image: Tottenham have ended talks with Gennaro Gattuso but the Spaniard, who has signed a contract extension this year, would prefer to stay in Andalusia. In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena SER, which was published on Seville’s official website, Castro said: “Jolin called me and told me. He said he had received offers he hadn’t listened to as well as an amazing one from Spurs” but said he was not forgetting things and that he is very excited here. We believe in him and we believe in him, give him a two-year contract and I am sure he will bring more for the club. 1:29 Football Daily’s Chris Hummel and Sky Sports News’ Michael Bridge discuss Harry Kane’s position at Tottenham after Manchester City made a £100m bid for the striker. “You see his ability and leadership every day. Some coaches are more motivated by economic factors but Yulin is very clear that he is happy here and even said it would be very difficult to find a better place to work than here.” Those who did not participate in Euro 2020 will report on pre-season training on July 5, with backroom staff scheduled to take fitness sessions if a new manager is not appointed. Man City offered £100m to Kane and Manchester City made £100m bid to buy Tottenham striker Harry Kane. 1:19 Michael Brown says Tottenham are in a difficult situation with Kane potentially losing and failing to find a new coach. City are open to signing players in addition to the cash offer, but Tottenham are expected to turn down the offer. Sky Sports News exclusively reported last month that Kane had told Tottenham he wanted to leave this summer with Man City, Manchester United and Chelsea interested, and the England captain is said to be fully focused on the European Championship, with no decision expected on his club’s future. Before the conclusion of the tournament, Kane is valued at more than £120m, and Tottenham are keen to keep him despite the 27-year-old believing he has a noble deal with Daniel Levy.
