Ramon Vega has taken to social media to joke that he will ask billionaire Elon Musk to buy Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham’s value has a football club has grown substantially since ENIC purchased majority shares of the club from Alan Sugar over two decades ago.

While a part of that growth is down to the investment into new infrastructure, including the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the training ground, the club has also grown commercially and now boast a massive global fanbase.

The team has also improved considerably on the pitch since the Sugar days which is borne out by their vastly improved league finishes over the last decade and a half but that has not quite translated to silverware, much to the discontent of some Spurs fans.

The popularity of Tottenham’s owners has taken a massive hit over the recent months, with fans not taking kindly to the European Super League debacle while their initial decision to decline to meet with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust also incurred a backlash from the supporters.

Reacting to a report by Bloomberg which put Musk’s net worth at $288.6bn (£210bn), Vega admitted that he would like to see the American buy Spurs and suggested the stadium naming rights should go to Tesla.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is going to take a mammoth offer for anyone to buy Tottenham from ENIC. I certainly cannot see that happening for at least another few years, with the world economy still recovering from the impact of the pandemic.
