The construction of a new stadium puts a major dent in the spending power of the club in a transfer window.
This has been true even for the top clubs like Arsenal. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reckons that his club will also face a similar situation in the coming few years. The money that is expected to be available for the manager in the transfer window is expected to be lowered. The club are building a brand-new 60,000 seater stadium that will rival the best in the business.
Even though a substantial portion of the £ 500 million expected bill will be provided by the sale of the existing . Pochettino has confirmed that the club will not be looking at a £ 25 million plus player in the short-term. This is due to the limited margin for mistake in the transfer window. He feels that Tottenham will be able to sign players only for around £ 15 million. The club has not been spending a vast sum of money since Pochettino was appointed. This was after the club burned a huge hole by largely wasting the £ 85 million received from the sale of Gareth Bale.
“For me when you spend more than £15m, £16m or £18m you must first have a player that brings good things like good behaviour, discipline, responsibility, professionalism. This is first, and he also has to have enough quality to improve the squad.In this case, for us at Tottenham, we are in a different project than a few years ago. We are in the process of building a new stadium and you know the period that another club experienced. For us it’s important to get it right,” said Pochettino.
