Tottenham Takeover: Well placed Dubai sources offer fresh take on Qatari investment

Talk of a potential takeover or investment from Qatar in Tottenham has been grabbing the headlines this week, with Daniel Levy meeting Nasser Al-khalifa.

Multiple reports have surfaced to claim Levy and Al-Khalifa held discussions this week, with talk of some investment into Spurs from Qatar.

And giving an update on the situation, Miguel Delaney of the The Independent has written in his Reading the Game column that there are differing views coming from Qatar.

“Some well-sourced figures in Qatar are talking a potential deal up, and it is certain that the state are looking to significantly expand their sports investments after what they would see as a hugely successful World Cup. It’s just that other connected individuals insist that their priority is elsewhere – especially La Liga,” Delaney writes.

“Spurs have, meanwhile, insisted any investment was not discussed, and there’s also the fact Levy and Al Khalifa are friends, with the latter having multiple reasons to meet with top football people given he is also the president of Paris Saint-Germain, the chairman of the European Club Association and on the Uefa executive committee. This story still has some way to go. What is certain is that Qatar are buoyed by the World Cup.”

TBR’s View: Takeover and investment talk will excite Tottenham fans

Spurs fans consistently ask for more money to be pumped into the club in terms of transfers and wages, so this will please those supporters.

Of course, it remains to be seen if any sort of investment will come. So far, Tottenham have played down talk of investment from QSI. But it can’t be ruled out either, given how the game is going.

For fans, investment will mean more new players. And for the average supporter, that means it’s an exciting time.

Yes, there is more to this and the wider debate on Qatari money is one for another day. But right now, if it means Tottenham compete, most fans would take it with open arms.
