Tottenham are considering appointing Ramon Planes to replace Fabio Paratici following the Italian’s worldwide ban from football activities.

According to Fichajes, Tottenham are considering Ramon Planes as a viable successor to Fabio Paratici. The Spurs managing director has seen his ban extended worldwide activities. He may have to relinquish his role at the north London club.

The Juventus scandal has had ramifications even far away from the club. The FIGC ruling earlier in the year saw Juventus being docked 15 points and thus pushing their plans to finish in the top four into jeopardy. Due to that, the team might lose some of their prized assets next summer.

The effects were far-reaching for the club and a few individuals related to the incident during its time. Former Juventus director and current Tottenham managing director Fabio Paratici has seen his career fall prey to the ruling. The latest update will certainly spell the end for him in north London.

While the FIGC ruling did not clarify the consequences of Paratici’s future earlier, the new update certainly did. The director was initially handed a 30-month ban from Italian football that extended to worldwide activities by FIFA.

Tottenham want clarification from FIFA on their ruling, and Paratici now has ten days to appeal the worldwide ban. Things have started to look bleak for the managing director, as Spurs could seek a viable replacement in the coming period.

Getafe director Ramon Planes emerged as a top target for the north Londoners, hoping to lure the Spaniard to the Premier League. The former Barcelona decision-maker also has interest from other sides in Spain as he considers his future.

While making a mark in the Premier League could trump everything else, he could also consider returning to Barcelona. The Catalans are keen on appointing Planes as their director, but Real Betis are also interested.

For so long, Betis seemed the favourites to appoint Planes but may have to concede defeat if Tottenham or Barcelona come into the picture. Spurs are keen on a top name to take their project forward, which has recently hit major roadblocks. While Antonio Conte was sacked, there are links to Julian Nagelsmann to join them.

One way or another, Spurs would like a good match for the new manager and director who might replace Paratici. The Italian might have to relinquish his role one way or another as Tottenham could accelerate their search for a new executive behind the scenes, with Planes seemingly their top target.
