Villas-Boas to reject PSG but wants Tottenham to show transfer ambition

Andre Villas-Boas will reject the overtures from Paris Saint-Germain in order to remain at Tottenham Hotspur but wants chairman Daniel Levy to sanction a busy summer of transfers in order to break into the top four of the Premier League, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The newspaper claims Villas-Boas has become PSG’s first choice to replace title-winning manager Carlo Ancelotti, who appears bound to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, with the French club willing to pay the £10m needed to free Villas-Boas from his contract at White Hart Lane.

Villas-Boas, however, wants to remain loyal to Levy after he was given a second chance in English football by Tottenham, having lasted less than a year in an unhappy and unsuccessful spell with Chelsea. But in return, if Villas-Boas does stay at Spurs, he wants Levy to support his moves in the transfer market.

Emmanuel Adebayor will be allowed to join Fenerbahce if the Turkish club follow up on their rumoured £10m offer. Villas-Boas would then sign David Villa from Barcelona and Internacional forward Leandro Damiao as replacements. Damiao would be joined by a compatriot, Corinthians midfielder Paulinho, with the Mirror suggesting the move for the latter player is close to completion already.

Blackpool winger Tom Ince could also be bought which, together with the Villas-Boas-approved appointment of Franco Baldini as director of football and the resolve at the club to reject Real Madrid’s interest in Gareth Bale, would send Villas-Boas the positive signals he is looking for as regards the club’s development.
