It emerged in February that Iranian-American businessman, Jahm Najafi, was working with a consortium to prepare a £3.1 billion offer to buy the Lilywhites (The Financial Times).

Meanwhile, it was reported in January that Qatar Sports Investments, who own Paris Saint-Germain, held conversations with the North London club regarding buying a minority stake (The Athletic).

According to The Evening Standard‘s recent update, Levy has had conversations with multiple prospective investors but he and Joe Lewis are undecided over whether they want to listen to offers for the whole club, sell a minority stake or remain in complete control.

However, The Mail believe that even if a takeover goes through, the Spurs chairman will insist on remaining in charge.

The publication asserts that the 61-year-old, who has been calling the shots for two decades, is in it for the long haul.

It has been quite clear for a while now that Levy wants to remain in charge even in the event of a takeover.

The Spurs chairman might want to ensure that his impressive work in building up the club’s revenue streams, is not wasted.

In fact, that might be one of the factors that could even be holding up negotiations with various consortiums.
