Tottenham Hotspur went into this 2018/19 season having failed to bring in a single new signing in the transfer window, becoming the first Premier League club in history to do so.
They continued this trend through January, having not spent a penny on transfers all season, despite selling first team star Mousa Dembele.
However, Spurs will surely have money to spend this time around, as both the Lilywhites and Liverpool have bagged an impressive amount of prize money for their Champions League exploits.
Liverpool came from three goals down to beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday, before Spurs scored three in the second half against Ajax to also turn around a three-goal deficit.
Unfortunately, the manner of the qualification makes no difference to the prize money, but both sides will be happy with a spot in the final in Madrid on June 1st.
Swiss Ramble (quoted by The Mirror) claim that Liverpool have earned £92.5m so far, around £22.5m more than last season.
Spurs are said to have earned £88m so far, which is a staggering £52.7m more than they were awarded for a last-16 spot last season.
The winner will bag an extra £3.5m after June 1st.
#THFC Champions League revenue is €102m for reaching the final, up from €61m last season.
Includes: participation €15m, prize money €55m, UEFA coefficient €16m and TV pool €16m.
If they win the final, they will earn an additional €4m, bringing their total to €106m. pic.twitter.com/5Gk6vqOwpC

Spurs Web Opinion:
Nearly £90m for the Champions League alone, and that doesn’t even include Premier League and match day profits. If Tottenham do not invest big this summer, then they never will. It is the perfect time to make a real push for silverware, while keeping the current crop happy with new contracts.
