Tottenham Subject To A £450 Million Bid By The New York Yankees

Interesting news are out and it has been reported that the New York Yankees are lining up an amazing offer for Tottenham.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, the owners of baseball giants New York Yankees are looking into buying Spurs for a massive £450million.

Powerhouse Yankees are said to be weighing up an offer for a major stake in the White Hart Lane outfit.

The interest comes after Yankees ­owner George Steinbrenner died aged 80 last week – and control of the fabled club, who have won 27 World Series, passed down to his sons Hal and Hank.

Hank, a former college soccer player, expressed an interest in buying the club in the early 1990s.

Back then, the Yankees were ­approached to buy a 33 per cent ­interest in Tottenham for around £20m – but they passed up the option and it is a decision that Hank still regrets.

Asked about buying into another sports franchise, Hank said: “The only thing would be a major soccer team in ­Europe, preferably in the Premier League. That’s always a possibility for me.”
