Harry Kane ‘tells family’ he’s joining Man City

Nuno Espirito Santo has made his first big chance as Tottenham boss – to the floor of the home dressing room.

The Portuguese manager has only been in the job for a month but is already making tweaks to the club’s interior design after implementing a new tactics pitch on the floor of the dressing room.

It is hoped the new feature will help Santo relay his tactical messages even easier to the Spurs stars, who are looking to bounce back from an underwhelming 2020/21 campaign that saw Santo’s predecessor and fellow countrymen Jose Mourinho sacked, sparking a managerial search that spanned more than two months.

Indeed, Nuno has been tasked with a huge job as he looks to overhaul Mourinho’s ageing squad.

Tottenham’s new-look dressing room

A recent image has revealed the former Wolves manager has installed a 2D mini football pitch on the floor of the changing room in £1bn stadium, designed with the idea of presenting Kane, Son and co. with a clearer idea of what the boss wants.

Santo was given the Spurs job after a number of other manager’s turned down the role at an advanced stage of negotiations, including Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso.

The ex-Wolves boss has already swung his axe and parted ways with seven former Tottenham stars, including Juan Foyth and Toby Alderweireld.

Foyth has earned the club £13.5m after making his loan with Villarreal permanent, while Alderweireld completed his £13m switch to Qatari side Al-Duhail.

Neither of Gareth Bale or Carlos Vinicius Jr’s loan spells were extended, while Paulo Gazzaniga and Danny Rose were released on free transfers.

After eight years, Erik Lamela departed North London, being used as part of a £22.5m swap deal for Sevilla winger Bryan Gil.

In terms of other incomings, Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini has put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal.

That is unlikely to be the last new arrival, with a number of talented stars, mostly defenders, across the continent all touted with a move to Tottenham.

Gollini’s Atalanta teammate Cristian Romero could soon make the switch, while Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu and Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic are also the subject of interest from Santo.
