Mauricio Pochettino is only getting £30m to spend at Tottenham this summer [The Times]

Screen Shot 2014 05 28 at 1.02.22 AM Mauricio Pochettino is only getting £30m to spend at Tottenham this summer [The Times]With every report, Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer kitty this summer at Spurs continues to shrink.

After the big announcement on Tuesday that Tottenham had agreed a five year contract with the former Southampton manager, attention immediately start to focus on who will be coming into White Hart Lane this summer.

Adam Lallana, a target for Liverpool, is now a hot favourite to move with his 2013-14 manager, however Tottenham fans will be concerned with the size of the war chest being made available to the Argentine.

While the Telegraph said Pochettino would have £50m to spend at Tottenham this summer, The Times shave that figure down to just £30m. Saying that, The Times recognise more funds may become available through sales.

Last summer Tottenham spent over £100m in the transfer market.

The Times report:

Mauricio Pochettino will be handed around £30 million plus money from player sales after he signed a five-year contract to take charge of Tottenham Hotspur last night.

The North London club are willing to accept a reduced transfer fee for Roberto Soldado.

Southampton will receive £2 million in compensation following Pochettino’s resignation after less than 18 months at the south coast club.
