Tottenham boss rejected big move

AVB will be given cash to sign a striker

We at the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Andre Villas-Boas at Tottenham and it has been revealed that the Spurs boss rejected a move to Paris Saint Germain earlier this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Villas-Boas was unable to guide Tottenham to a Champions League spot in the Premier League despite recording a record points tally and having a star in the shape of Gareth Bale at the forefront of most games.

After spending almost £70million this summer, Spurs are now in a stronger position to break into the top four and Bale’s pending move to Real Madrid seems to be stalling.

PSG enquired about making AVB their new boss this summer but after some deliberation, the Tottenham chief decided he would be better off staying in North London to try and build something special at White Hart Lane.

Real Madrid were also interested in the Spurs boss who has a big reputation after following in the footsteps of Jose Mourinho at Porto.

“It is my first opportunity to start a second year in the same club,” Villas-Boas said.

“I think that can give me an advantage and is something I want to try.”

“I have been very welcomed. I have an excellent group of players and the conditions and structures we have at Tottenham are fantastic, and the arrival of Franco Baldini takes us to another level so these are things I had to measure.

“I have great respect for the club and for Daniel (Levy) and these are the reasons the couple of clubs that came knocking I told them that I wasn’t interested.’’

Has AVB made the right decision?
