Tottenham reassure Villas-Boas after talks almost break down

The Independent has reported that Tottenham Hotspur have moved to ease the concerns of Andre Villas-Boas after the Guardian claimed the former Chelsea manager had threatened to pull out of talks over replacing Harry Redknapp when he feared he was not the club’s first choice.

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.
