Is Andres Villas-Boas the next Real Madrid head coach?
Gareth Bale being linked to Real is old news. We've been hearing about it for months. But could Madrid be looking to grab Tottenham manager Andres Villas-Boas as well?
According to Tom Hopkinson of The Mirror, Los Blancos are not only going after Bale, but his coach as well.
Hopkinson states that Madrid is planning to pay around £40 million for Bale and £10 million in compensation to the Spurs for Villas-Boas.
Jose Mourinho is not expected to return to Madrid next season.
Along with Villas-Boas, Paris Saint-Germain's Carlo Ancelotti is also reportedly being considered.
In my opinion, Ancelotti is a more likely candidate to take over the Madridistas. However, I can see the lure of Villas-Boas.
He's young and has managed Tottenham very well since taking over. He could be seduced by Real, though I'm sure Spurs fans do not want to hear it.
Both Bale and Villas-Boas gone? Depressing for the Tottenham faithful.
