The retooling job at Tottenham Hotspur rages on this summer after Spurs have been linked with interest in Barcelona director of football Mateu Alemany.
The 60-year-old has been at board level in football for nearly twenty years at Mallorca, Valencia, and Barcelona, where his term as director of football at Spotify Camp Nou comes to a conclusion in September.
Per an update via Fabrizio Romano, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy views Alemany as a “potential option” to fill the new Director of Football role at Tottenham once his current term sheet reaches its conclusion on the 2nd of next month.
Alemany, who was recently linked with serious interest from Aston Villa in the same capacity back in June, is clearly in some type of demand despite his somewhat questionable track record in recent years.
The Balearic-born executive previously left his role as president at Mallorca in 2005 as the club teetered on bankruptcy, before returning in 2009 only to last just one year. Alemany then signed on with Valencia as General Director in 2017 before ultimately being dismissed in two years.
Two years later, Alemany arrived at Barcelona in his current capacity during the current reign of Joan Laporta, where he has had a mixed bag of results when it comes to heading up player recruitment and squad building.
Should he choose to move to Spurs immediately after his time on Spain’s east coast, he will arrive too late to help the club find a suitable replacement for Harry Kane, but could have a massive role to play in potentially putting the club to rights and getting them squared away for the foreseeable future.
