It has been reported that Tottenham are being put up for sale by owner Joe Lewis.
The Mirror reported that the 77-year-old businessman has wanted to cash in on his investment for some time and would now now like a staggering £1billion for the north Londoners.
There has so far been no interest as any potential buyers will need to assume the financial burden of the club’s new stadium – said to be around £400million.
However it is felt any takers would benefit from the increased revenue generated by the 56,000-seater venue, income from naming rights and TV cash.
Self-made billionaire Lewis controls ENIC International Ltd, which bought a controlling stake in Spurs from Alan Sugar back in 2001 for around £22million.
