Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the appointment of Fabricio Paratici as Managing Director of Football.
Paratici left Juventus earlier this month after 11 years at the club and is increasingly likely to be joined by Paulo Fonseca as talks continue with the former AS Roma boss over becoming Tottenham's new head coach.
"I am thrilled by this fantastic opportunity and I thank the club and the chairman for the trust in me," Paratici said in a statement.
"Tottenham is one of the top clubs in the UK and in Europe with an ambitious long-term plan. I will dedicate all myself to this new venture and look forward to working with the management team to write a new and hopefully successful chapter in the club history."
