Tottenham closing in on £23m Champions League deal, Levy personally stepping in

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur - Capital One Cup Final

The feeling of change has been the sewing motif of life at White Hart Lane over the past few season, with our Spurs supporting punters sent into dreamland after a complete overhaul of their side.

While change can be a good thing, the heartstrings are clearly being tugged at following the latest reports.

Tottenham Hotspur have held positive talks with FA about playing their Champions League matches at Wembley next season, report ESPN.

Spurs are set to enter their final season at their famous White Hart Lane home, with plans to move in to a 61,000 seater arena in time for the 2018-19 campaign.

In order to speed the process along, chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly considering the removal of the stadium’s North Stand as soon as possible.

Should the Paxton Road end ultimately be removed, the North London outfit will need to find somewhere else to play their Champions League games.

To that end, Levy is believed to have held positive talks in regards to playing them at the national stadium, though no deal has yet been reached.

Spurs are also thought to want to use Wembley as a temporary home for the 2017-18 season, with Levy personally negotiating, worth around £23m for the season.

It would take an utter capitulation and a freak run of results for the club now not to finish in the top four, meaning they will enter the continent’s elite competition for the first time in five years.

Will this potential move dampen the allure of Wembley?
