Report: What people close to Nasser Al-Khelaifi are now saying about Tottenham deal after his meeting with Levy
The biggest news around Tottenham Hotspur over the last few days has been about Nasser Al-Khelaifi – the chairman of Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) and president of Paris Saint-Germain – potentially being interested in buying a minority stake at Spurs.
That’s right, there are rumours going around that one of the wealthiest sports investment groups in the world is showing interest in Tottenham, which is a cause of excitement for some supporters, who are not too happy with Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy.
People close to Nasser Al-Khelaifi play down rumours about Tottenham deal
CBS Sports revealed three days ago that Al-Khelaifi’s QSI are really interested in expanding their portfolio of football clubs which already includes Paris Saint-Germain and 22 per cent of Portuguese top-flight club SC Braga.
Their eyes are now reportedly on the Premier League as well as South America
The report does not suggest that PSG’s owners are looking to buy Tottenham or any other club outright – they are just looking to secure a minority stake this year.
Levy and Al-Khelaifi reportedly met for dinner a few days ago. The two, according to Standard Sport, are good friends, but their meeting was not just two pals catching up, they did have a discussion about business.
The reports claim that QSI began discussions over buying a minority stake in Tottenham. Sources close to Levy and Spurs both denied these reports and it looks like the noises from Paris and Qatar are similar.
Standard Sport reveal that people close to Al-Khelaifi are also playing down any potential investment or purchase of Tottenham Hotspur following his dinner with Levy a few days ago.
Whether that really is the case, however, remains to be seen in the coming weeks and months.
