Expert: Tottenham have just suffered £250m blow due to 'huge' Liverpool news
Tottenham have suffered a major blow in their attempts to secure a stadium naming rights partner thanks to Man United.
That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Google and Amazon are both in the running to secure a 10-year-plus naming rights agreement with Tottenham which is likely to be worth up to £25million per season.
However, after Sky News reported on Tuesday (22 November) that Man United is up for sale, Wenham claims Spurs’ chances of finding a sponsor have diminished significantly.
“I think, for Tottenham, it’s quite worrying really,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Tottenham are trying to secure new sponsorships and a naming rights deal, now you have huge companies who instead of looking at naming rights could now be looking at a full takeover of a huge Premier League club in Liverpool or Man United.

“At a time where we have heard Tottenham might be up for sale behind the scenes, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, investment in our club from other investors has taken a back seat.
“Tottenham will be even more concerned about their position if more takeovers happen. Getting into the top four consistently would be a lot harder if Man United and Liverpool are elevated to a whole new level.
“It also brings the Super League stuff back to the table. I don’t think that is as dead as some people are saying.
“I can see new owners coming in and realising that Barcelona are still skint, I can see these takeovers being linked to a second run of that.
“Tottenham will be worried that two of their big rivals have the chance to go to another level in terms of money if they are taken over by certain people.
“The people who wanted our naming rights could now buy a club, that’s the difference.”
