The news that mega rich Paris Saint-Germain have offered Tottenham manager Andres Villa-Boas the job at the Parc des Princes could be too good to turn down for the young Portuguese manager, who has done a great job this season with Tottenham redeeming his reputation after being fired by Chelsea.
The Qatari owned French team have bottomless pockets, and would have no difficulty in paying the £10 million buyout clause it would take for Tottenham to release their manager.
The French Ligue 1 Champions if all the reports are true have lost their current coach Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, a club that has already said they have made Gareth Bale their number one target this summer as newly reelected Los Blanco’s president Florentino Perez looks to build his second galacticos team in the Santiago Bernabéu.
There may be more to this story than just PSG wanting to hire the 35-year-old as their manager with the British tabloid Daily Mail reporting that it is part of a ploy to snatch Gareth Bale from the clutches of Real Madrid by installing AVB as their manager and offering the young Welshman the chance to join the manager he so highly regards in Paris where they expect to challenge for the Champions League next season, while also battling big spending Monaco for the French title.
In a way I would love to see AVB stay at White Hart Lane with Chairman Daniel Levy doing everything he can in order for the north London club to be able to compete with the big spending teams in the Premiership.
Franco Baldini is being brought in from Roma to be the clubs new director of football, and that along with a brand new training facility and plans for a new stadium are all steps in the right direction, I can’t help feeling that no matter how grateful Villas-Boas feels towards Levy the temptation to run a club where he could buy whoever he wanted would be too good an opportunity to turn down, and that faced with the thought of losing Bale, and seeing all the clubs that finished above Tottenham last season brining in top talent will make him leave.
