“I’m told” – Journalist shares Tottenham takeover update from “sources” close to Sheikh Jassim

After his failed attempt to purchase Manchester United, Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani is apparently eyeing an acquisition of Tottenham Hotspur. Journalist Ben Jacobs has offered an internal update to GIVEMESPORT on whether any preliminary negotiations have taken place.Despite a strong start to the season, Spurs supporters wouldn’t object to additional funding. Numerous fans have questioned Daniel Levy’s decisions at Hotspur Way, and there have been rumors that Sheikh Jassim is planning to purchase the north London team.

Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed an impressive start to the season

Spurs had a difficult summer transfer window when their star player Harry Kane left for Bundesliga team Bayern Munich for a reported £100 million. Spurs fans may have been concerned for their team’s future after the loss of such a significant player, but the hiring of a new manager has allowed them to not only survive without Kane but also make significant strides forward.

Prior to the international break, the north London club was in first place in the Premier League, and the additions they made during the summer transfer window had an immediate effect.

They have arguably been the best-performing squad in the Premier League, as the table implies, thanks to players like Micky van de Ven and James Maddison who stepped into Postecoglou’s team and quickly established themselves as crucial players. However, additional investment might be required if they wish to maintain this performance and compete for the championship at the end of the season.

The jury is still out on Postecoglou, according to journalist Paul Brown, who recently told GIVEMESPORT that despite a strong start to the campaign. Although it may be too soon to declare them legitimate title contenders, they might stand a chance if they can get outside funding and further develop their playing staff.

Ben Jacobs update at Hotspur Way

Sheikh Jassim may now focus on Spurs after failing to reach an agreement with Manchester United to acquire the club, according to the Mirror. According to the report, Levy has already visited with organizations based in Qatar to discuss securing further funding, but no agreements have yet been reached.

Jacobs has claimed that he has been informed that Sheikh Jassim and Tottenham have not yet undertaken any takeover conversations. According to the journalist’s sources, Sheikh Jassim is not in a hurry to buy another Premier League team because he only intended to purchase Manchester United. Jacobs remarked in a statement to GIVEMESPORT…

“There’s been links with Spurs and Inter. And again, I’m told that at this stage, there’s been no discussions for either of those clubs either. So there’s no guarantee that Sheikh Jassim has a burning hole in his pocket to buy a football club. Sources indicate that this was about Manchester United, rather than finding a club, and if Qatar therefore are to invest in another big club, through whatever means, I’m not convinced that it will be specifically Nine Two Foundation and Sheikh Jassim.”

Prior to their matchup with Man United in the previous campaign, according to talkSPORT, Spurs supporters protested against team owners ENIC and Levy back in April. These backers demanded that Levy leave and that ENIC sell off its assets. After a strong start to the season, supporters may be a little quieter this time around, but they won’t be forgetting the club’s protracted drought of trophy wins.

Spurs’ January transfer window plans

Journalist Dean Jones recently told GIVEMESPORT that Spurs would prioritize adding a new central defense over bringing in a striker during the January transfer window. Lloyd Kelly of Bournemouth has been one player who has been mentioned in connection with a move to Hotspur Way.

Spurs are expected to rekindle their interest in Kelly after having a £20 million deal for him rejected during the summer transfer window, according to Football.London. The 25-year-old is now in the final year of his contract with the club, so he may be available for a lower price than they might expect to have to increase their offer to entice him away from the Cherries.
