Contact had been made between Spurs and Villas-Boas but when it emerged Tottenham were still considering other candidates, including current Head Coach of France Laurent Blanc, Villas-Boas complained that chairman Daniel Levy was speaking to “10 other coaches,” the Guardian wrote. But the Independent believes the parties spoke again earlier this week, a conversation that assuaged the Portuguese’s concerns.
The Guardian however adds that Villas-Boas’ concerns will push Levy to speed up the process of identifying a replacement for Harry Redknapp, who left White Hart Lane last week. The same Guardian article reveals Villas-Boas understands Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric is to be sold to Real Madrid.
