Tottenham and Chairman Daniel Levy will be rely on a rare factor in football – loyalty – if Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas is to stay at White Hart Lane next season. If the reported interest in the Portuguese is followed through by Paris Saint-Germain, Levy will be unable to compete with the financial package on offer, not to mention the wealth of world class talent at the manager’s disposal in Ligue 1.
In return for ignoring the lure of the French Euro, AVB will be looking to Levy to retain his best assets – i.e. Gareth Bale – and strengthen the squad with some high profile targets ahead of the new Premiership campaign.
Andre also wants to work closely with Franco Baldini who is set to finally join up as the new Director of Football and hopefully identify some world class talent to take the club forward. The initial report on this story seems to have originated from our old friends the Daily Mail who have gone overboard with the list of transfer targets – the Spanish pair of David Villa and Roberto Soldado together with Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao – but it’s a legitimate story if the AVB to PSG rumours have any substance.
Many fans are sick of reading about it but it is a nervous time and some positive moves on the Chairman’s part are needed in the coming weeks.
