Tottenham Hotspur owner Joe Lewis isn’t one to frequent the North London club often as he currently lives in the Bahamas.
Spurs didn’t spend a single penny in the summer, but Lewis is still raking in the money.
The Sun report, when putting a David Hockney painting up for sale with a price tag of £14m, demand saw Lewis’ profits skyrocket as the piece eventually sold for a whopping £70m.
Forbes now say the 81-year-old is worth a staggering £3.5 billion.
Tottenham fans will be hoping to see some of this immense wealth put into their team in the next couple of transfer windows.
Especially when the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Christian Eriksen may all need some hefty wage increases to convince them to sign new contracts.
It is unlikely that the £70m from the painting sale will be put into Tottenham Hotspur FC, but fans can dare to dream.
Pochettino will surely be looking to spend in January after a signing-less summer.
