Fabio Paratici’s future at Tottenham is coming under increasing scrutiny following allegations he was willing to pay more than market value from Atalanta in order to fix his former club Juventus, according to the latest reports.
Signed Cristian Romero.
The Italian Football Association imposed a 30-month ban on Paratici, and this penalty procedure is expected to be adopted by UEFA and FIFA, which also means that Paratici will no longer be able to serve as Tottenham’s managing director.
But as the investigation progresses, Levy will find that the problem is more serious.
Paratici switched to north London in the summer of 2021 and one of his first deals was the signing of Romero from Atalanta, who is on loan from Juventus for the 2020-21 season.
Atalanta bought out the Argentina international before selling him to Tottenham five months later for a fee of £42.5million last summer.
Spurs would not comment on Paratici’s suspension or his future, but have strongly opposed the idea of them paying a supermarket price premium for the 24-year-old Romero, claiming they want to develop him into a world-class player.
