Spurs weighing up move for Old Trafford reject.
Tottenham could offer David Moyes a swift return to management this summer, according to the Evening Standard.
The 50-year-old is being weighed up as a possible replacement for Tim Sherwood, who has already been told he will not be retained beyond the end of this term.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy considered Moyes in summer 2012 before the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas and remains an admirer of the Scot despite his disastrous 10-month spell in charge of Manchester United.
The North London outfit are reportedly still interested in Louis van Gaal but fear United may have jumped ahead of them in the queue for the Dutchman after Moyes’ dismissal from Old Trafford.
The former Everton boss would cost significantly less in wages than Van Gaal and would be available for nothing this summer – two factors that greatly appeal to Spurs at a time when they are saving for a new stadium.
However, the Standard understands that Tottenham’s board is divided over Moyes following his reign at United, in which he looked hopeless out of depth.
There are strong doubts about his ability to mastermind a top four finish – a minimum requirement for any Spurs boss – given Roberto Martinez’s speedy turnaround of the Toffees.
