My understanding is that there is an option for the club to extend his contract by a year which they could do at any time. I do think there is an issue here around the way it looks though and I'd much prefer he signed a 3 year contract and commit to the club. However I think the reason he isn't doing that is because he doesn't yet trust Levy to back him sufficiently so it's as much Levy's fault as Conte's. In fact, I'd argue it's mostly Levy because Conte doesn't really have to be here, he could walk away and get another top job within 6 months - the pressure is on Levy to show him that the ambitions of the club match the ambitions of Conte. I have no doubt Conte would stay for a few years at least if he knew the club was going to back him through the rebuild.I like your opinions and tend to take notice of them. Outside looking in, seems a mess between Conte signing a new contract but wanting funds and the board taking the opposite view. He doesn't have the players to effectively play how he really wants but really does have the aura of a man hanging around but would leave if a certain Italian club came knocking. In all seriousness, how do you see things right now with Spurs?
We are at a crossroads (yet again) - squad needs major overhaul, Levy looks like he is meddling again and fecking things up in the background and in Conte we have probably the first manager that I can remember who is strong enough to push back on Levy and call out the club for lack of ambition - this is why a lot of Spurs fans are now turning against Levy because we all know Conte is right.
