Sheikh Jassim ‘could launch takeover bid for Tottenham’ after meeting between Daniel Levy and Qataris

Sheikh Jassim could make a surprise offer to take over Tottenham Hotspur after failing to take over Manchester United, it has been claimed
Last week, Mr Jassim withdrew from the United takeover race after it emerged that Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s offer to take a minority stake in the club was of greater interest to the Glazer family
Ratcliffe’s offer is thought to be around £1
4bn for a 25% stake, with the club aiming to buy the entire club in the future
As a result, Jassim could turn his focus back to Premier League rivals Tottenham, looking to gain a foothold in English first-class football
According to the Mirror, Qatari bankers met with Nasser Al-Khelaifi, head of Qatar Sports Investment (QSI), earlier this year and could decide on a bid for the north London club
It is claimed that there is
In January, the Daily Mail reported that QSI’s plans to buy Spurs were unlikely due to UEFA restrictions and Paris Saint-Germain’s ownership
However, according to The Athletic, QSI could be instrumental in Sheikh Jassim’s surprise move to the club after Al-Khelaifi advised on his compatriot’s plans for United

Jassim and his Nine Two Foundation were prepared to provide £5
5bn for the Old Trafford club, with a further £1bn to be invested in stadium improvements and new signings
Spurs, on the other hand, have no problems with infrastructure after building a brand new state-of-the-art stadium worth £1 billion in 2019


Furthermore, the cost for the club, which currently leads the Premier League on goal difference, will be significantly lower than Manchester United
There are also rumors that Jassim wants to buy Liverpool, after owner Fenway Sports Group confirmed in November last year that they were open to a complete sale
Qatar’s Sheikh Jassim could make a sensational bid to take over Manchester United’s Premier League rivals Tottenham, it has been claimed, after his failed bid to take control of Old Trafford
Last week, Qatar’s bid, led by Jassim, withdrew from the United takeover race after it emerged that Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s offer for a minority stake was more attractive to the Glazer family
Talks to buy Tottenham Hotspur’s are continuing, with the north London club presenting an attractive offer for investors, especially after a strong start to the season under new manager Ange Postecoglou
Chairman Daniel Levy himself acknowledges this
Spurs have been the subject of speculation since the beginning of the year, when it was reported that Levy was meeting with Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi
Al-Khelaifi is the chairman of PSG’s owner, Qatar Sports Investments, and has signed Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé in recent years, and his “Galactico” transfer policy has seen him move to Parc des Princes
It’s causing ripples
This has only increased recently since Manchester United have moved towards securing new investment of their own, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe purchasing a 25 per cent stake in the club and There is a high possibility that they will take control
This would give Sheikh Jassim, a Qatari banker and alleged Tottenham fan, a large amount of cash at his disposal, fueling a potential takeover
