According to a report by Football Insider, a Tottenham takeover is on the cards and even more likely than ever after the European Super League disaster – with chairman Daniel Levy now facing a ‘huge fight’ to keep his job.
Tottenham takeover claim lifts lid on Levy blow
Indeed, as per the outlet, this comes after a reported £800 million deal with unnamed investors fell through last year for a 50 per cent stake in Tottenham.
It is also reported by Football Insider that Levy was a key figure in the failed talks, and a financial source even accused him of not wanting to cede control in the day to day running of Spurs.
In an update, they report that a takeover is more likely now than in previous years and the European Super League saga has only increased that possibility further.
Alongside the larger possibility of a takeover, FI also claim Levy is facing a ‘huge fight’ to keep his job after the ESL travesty and tarnishing of the club’s reputation.
Transfer Tavern take
Tottenham signed up to the closed Super League alongside an English ‘big six’ of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Man United and Man City – with the club receiving swift backlash for their involvement.
Eventually, all English sides pulled out of the controversial arrangement after large protests from the fans and media alike – leaving a bitter taste.
In a potentially big blow for Levy, it appears that this decision could fall heavily on him judging by this FI report – perhaps he will be the next big figure to leave following the PR catastrophe after Ed Woodward resigned at Manchester United.
Supporters were seen protesting before the Southampton game against ENIC Group and Levy – evidence that the ESL saga has only worsened an already rocky relationship with supporters.
