Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he considered an offer from French giants PSG during the summer before opting to remain at White Hart Lane, according to the Metro.

The mega-rich Ligue 1 champions were keen to land the Portuguese coach as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who took over the vacant manager’s post at Real Madrid, though they eventually hired Laurent Blanc after Villas-Boas chose to stay at Spurs.

However, the former Chelsea boss has also hinted that he is still in contact with PSG and may only be at Tottenham for the short-term, saying he wanted to stay at the club for ‘another year’.

“I speak with the PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi on a regular basis,” he said.

“He offered me the PSG job in the summer, but I decided that I wanted to stay another year at Tottenham in the end.”

Villas-Boas, still only 35, is rated as one of the best young managers in the world, and previously caught the eye of several top clubs after his fine work when in charge of Porto. This saw him land the Chelsea job in 2011, though he failed to complete a season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Having failed to qualify for the Champions League with Spurs last season, it was also rumoured during the summer that he could be in the frame for the Real Madrid job, and may have been tempted to follow star player Gareth Bale to the Bernabeu.
