Text messages from Daniel Levy

A peek at the private communications of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy

(Tottenham Hotspur)

Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez recently revealed Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy texts him something to the effect of “Congratulations for winning with my players” whenever Real Madrid wins the Champions League. The story, related in an interview with Spain’s premier radio network La Cadena SER, was thought to be in jest. That was until approximately 13.4 million confidential electronic documents relating to offshore investments were leaked to German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung and, in turn, the International Consortium of International Journalists. The “Paradise Papers,” as they are called, contain the names of more than 120,000 people and companies in 20 countries. The following, communications between Levy and various figures in the soccer world, has been shared with Howler.
