Portuguese set to make a final decision on his future after returning from holiday.
Tottenham Hotspur are said to be increasingly confident of being able to keep hold of in-demand head coach Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane next season, despite increased interest in the Portuguese from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, reports the Guardian.
The big-spending French giants are currently on the look-out for a new manager after Real Madrid made an approach for their own trainer Carlo Ancelotti to take over from new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, despite the fact that the Portuguese’s agent, Carlos Goncalves, spent all weekend in the French capital discussing a possible move for his client to the Parc des Princes next season, with the Qatari Investment Authority indicating that they would be willing to meet Villas-Boas’s £10 million release clause in his contract at White Hart Lane, the north London club are believed to be remaining calm.
The 35-year-old former Porto and Chelsea manager, who won 27 of his 54 games in charge of Tottenham in his debut season with the club, but failed to steer them into the top four of the Premier League, has been promised significant backing in the summer transfer window by chairman Daniel Levy, which he feels will be enough to convince Villas-Boas to reject the Parisians’ overtures.
