Consortium eyes Spurs.
The Qatari consortium that owns mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain is interested in buying 25 per cent of Tottenham Hotspur.
The group are keen to invest in the Premier League and have held discussions with ENIC – the company that owns a majority stake in Spurs – and Chairman Daniel Levy.
UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations restrict the group from purchasing any more than 25 per cent of another European club due to their ownership of PSG.
But the move will still be a significant boost for the north Londoners and should mean new boss Andre Villas-Boas has up to £200 million to splash on wages and transfer fees this summer.
The move is likely to mark a change in policy at White Hart Lane. Spurs have been notoriously thrifty in recent seasons and last January former boss Harry Redknapp was restricted to bringing in veterans Ryan Nelsen and Louis Saha on free transfers.
This summer, the north Londoners have already beaten Liverpool to the signature of Gylfi Sigurdsson, reportedly by offering him a significant wage packet and this could be a sign of things to come.
Under the deal, Levy will remain as chairman and ENIC will continue to hold a majority share of the club.
