Tottenham Hotspur have rarely been ones to break the bank in transfer windows under the stewardship of Daniel Levy, but things could take a turn for the worse this year.
Spurs have actually been dipping into their pockets of late with the 2019/20 purchases of Tanguy Ndombele, Jack Clarke, Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon, Steven Bergwijn, and Gedson Fernandes on loan.
However, the Telegraph now report that Daniel Levy may only sanction spending of up to around £50m in the 2020 summer market if the club fail to secure Champions League football.
Short of winning the competition this year, Spurs would have to finish in the qualification places in the Premier League, which is usually the top four.
Tottenham are currently seventh and five behind Chelsea in fourth, with Man United, Wolves, and Sheffield United also all battling for that elusive spot.
If Man City’s European ban goes through then fifth could also be granted Champions League football, but even that is not a certainty for Spurs (BBC).
Having a limited budget when the squad arguably needs an overhaul is not ideal reading for Spurs fans.
