Daniel Levy has admitted that he is open to selling a stake in Tottenham Hotspur should a suitable offer arrive.
There has been a lot said and written about a potential Tottenham takeover recently, with The Telegraph even claiming last week that the Lilywhites are generating quite a bit of interest across the pond.
The report discussed the increasing number of US investors in the English top-flight in light of 777’s takeover of Everton, stating that Spurs are seen as one of the most lucrative clubs for American consortiums.
In fact, one banker, who recently offered funds for a consortium bidding for Manchester United was quoted in the report as saying: “Tottenham are always of interest if someone can finally get Daniel Levy down on price.”
The Tottenham chairman has now admitted that while he is not actively looking to sell the club, he will listen to any offers that come his way.
Levy told Bloomberg: “I’ve got no real interest to leave Tottenham, but I have a duty to consider anything that anyone may want to propose. It’s not about me, it’s about what’s right for the club.
Tottenham have received offers in the past
The 61-year-old also confirmed that Spurs have received offers from the Far East, Middle East and the US in the past.
However, he told the publication about those bids: “Nothing has been put on our table that we felt has been in the interests of shareholders.”
In his appearance on a fan forum at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday, Levy revealed that Spurs are not in a hurry to sell the night rights of the stadium, explaining that hosting big events at the venue will serve as a boost to the club’s brand.

We have known for a long time that Tottenham are available for sale for the right price. However, Levy and ENIC are likely to demand a considerable fee, given the earning potential of the stadium and the price that Chelsea recently fetched. So, even a partial sale might not be likely in the next few years.
