'We were so close, insanity': Some Tottenham fans discuss what Levy has done now, amid reports
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after The Telegraph revealed that Daniel Levy values the club at an eye-watering £3.5bn.
What’s the story?
Well, The Telegraph believe an interested party recently approached Levy with the intention of bidding for Tottenham.
However, the 59-year-old quoted them £3.5bn to buy the club, which is quite frankly an enormous amount of money.
To put that into context, Real Madrid are valued at €1.27bn, which equates to £1.09bn (ESPN).
For Levy to demand over three times that amount for Tottenham, who are nowhere near Real Madrid’s level, is quite the stance.
Simply put, nobody – possibly not even Qatari based investors – would go near Spurs for that price, in our view.
Levy has effectively told the interested party to get lost, using the language of numbers.
Will Daniel Levy ever leave Tottenham?
Some fans below seem to believe they’ll be stuck with Levy forever, and despite trying to find means of reassurance, we unfortunately can’t.
Levy is the longest-serving chairman in the Premier League, having taken over in N17 back in 2001.
It’s been 20 years – two whole decades – and Spurs haven’t actually achieved that much with him at the helm, other than one League Cup, a Champions League final and having nice facilities.
In that respect, you have to wonder what it’ll take for him to actually sell up and leave – the protests clearly aren’t working so far.
For now, let’s see what the Tottenham fans on Twitter have been saying about The Telegraph‘s revelation…
