Andre Villas-Boas has £270m to spend at Spurs
ANDRE Villas-Boas will see if he can do better at Spurs than he did at Chelsea. The Portuguese has signed a three-year deal to be the Tottenham head coach. The announcement has been followed by some great news for Spurs fans, although it depends on which Murdoch paper you read:
AVB will get a transfer kitty of around £40m – with a guarantee that he can also spend every penny he recoups from player sales”
So says the Sun’s Paul Smith, who puts the Spurs transfer budget at £100m.
Over in the Times, Gary Jacob reports the figure as £40m:
Daniel Levy will back Villas-Boas in the transfer market, but the Tottenham chairman expects to spend less than he generates from player sales this summer…
The Daily Mail chimes in with:
Andre Villas-Boas has been handed a £50m war-chest to help him crack the Premier League after being confirmed as Tottenham’s new manager.
The London Evening Standard has its own figure:
Andre Villas-Boas takes charge at Spurs and gets £80m Euro kitty
Still, Spurs do have money for new players to kickstart their latest rosy-fingered dawn.
Such are the facts.
