Qatar spends 1.51 trillion to acquire Tottenham stake

The money Qatar wants to invest in Tottenham Hotspur is astronomical.

The British ‘Telegraph’ reported on the 10th (Korean time), “Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and QSI (Qatar Sports Investments) chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently met with Chairman Daniel Levy. Afterwards, QSI may acquire a part of Tottenham. News has leaked out. QSI intends to pay 1 billion pounds (approximately 1.5125 trillion won) for a 25% stake in Tottenham.”

“QSI’s interest in Tottenham is serious. They said that there was no formal process yet. A ‘bold and strategic takeover’ could be made in a few months. Prior to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Qatar was an English Premier League player. (EPL) I wasn’t interested in buying the team, but not now 토토사이트. It’s an offer that could be attractive enough for Tottenham.”

Qatar is serious about investing in football. Qatar, the richest country in the world with abundant resources, invested heavily in football, starting with the purchase of PSG in 2011. He also hosted international competitions such as the World Cup and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, and paid huge amounts of money to bring star players such as Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Lionel Messi to PSG.

Taking a longer-term approach, PSG plans to buy stakes in several clubs. It is judged that he intends to increase his influence in the football world. Portugal’s SC Bra bought a 21.67% stake and took action in earnest. Britain’s Daily Mirror said,

It is also preparing to penetrate the EPL, the center of European football. Manchester United and Liverpool were mentioned, but Tottenham seems to be the most interested. ‘Telegraph’ said, “Tottenham is obviously attractive. Antonio Conte has manager, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, and the world’s best stadium.

In Tottenham, ENIC chairman Joe Lewis has been the owner since 2001, and Lewis’ division, Levy, took over as Tottenham chairman at the same time and has been active so far. If Qatari capital comes in, the decision-making power of the ENIC division, including Chairman Levy, will decrease, but the financial power will increase. Whether the ENIC allows this is the key.
