Tottenham have tapped Slott as their next manager to succeed Antonio Conte. But only if Feyenoord untie the knot. He has two more years left on his contract with Feyenoord.
Slott’s agent, Raffaella Pimenta, will hold talks with the Feyenoord hierarchy on Thursday. If Feyenoord allow Slott to join Tottenham, the deal could be made ‘official’ in one fell swoop.
However, the deal is unlikely to go 안전놀이터 through easily. The UK’s Daily Mail revealed new details on Wednesday. Initially, it was reported that Tottenham would have to pay Feyenoord a compensation fee of £6 million.
However, according to the Daily Mail, “There is a £5 million ($8 billion) buyout clause in Slott’s contract, but it won’t be activated until next summer,” and “Feyenoord, who have just been crowned Dutch champions, do not want him to leave. An agreement is likely to be reached only if Tottenham take the low road and pay compensation in excess of £10 million.
Slott will be accompanied by assistant coach Marino Pucic if the deal goes through. The first signing was also revealed. Liverpool are targeting Orkun Kökçu.
The Feyenoord youth product is an attacking midfielder and one of Slott’s first pupils. Even at the tender age of 22, he was the nucleus of Feyenoord’s midfield. Feyenoord have set a transfer fee of £40 million for Kökçu.
Slott, who began his managerial career at AZ Alkmaar in 2019, took over the reins at Feyenoord in 2021 and has guided the club to the top of the Eredivisie for the first time in six years this season.
His soccer colors are clear. The Dutch coach, whose role model is Johan Cruyff, is a believer in total soccer. He plays energetic, attacking soccer based on strong pressing. He favors 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 systems.
