Pochettino’s promised summer transfer budget revealed in report

Tottenham Hotspur have now gone around 15 months without signing a single new player, the first club ever to do this in Premier League history.

It seems logical that after having a largely successful season, reaching the Champions League semi-final and almost securing top four, Tottenham may splash the cash in the summer.

With the new stadium finally open, Tottenham must now invest in the squad to compete for major titles.

The Sun have reported that Pochettino will be given £100m this summer to spend on new transfers, and he is planning for a major overhaul of the current squad.

This comes after Tottenham revealed world record profits of around £113m last year (SkySports), as well as the minimum of £85m they stand to receive from their Champions League campaign this season (Sun).

Spurs fans will be dreaming of some big names, as well as a push for silverware next season, after they have gone well over a decade without a trophy.

Spurs Web Opinion:

If the £100m budget is to be a net budget, then I would be thrilled with this reported decision from Daniel Levy. However, if this budget depends on Pochettino raising some, or all, of the money by selling players, then I simply don’t think it will be enough for a major rebuild. For the quality of players that Tottenham need to push for say a Premier League, Spurs will need to spend big money, rather than attempting to do it on the cheap. With the training ground and stadium now open, and profits rolling in, now is the time for action.
