Tottenham to reward Pochettino with eye-watering £60m transfer war chest

Having tied down manager Mauricio Pochettino to a new five-year deal, Tottenham Hotspur appear set to reward their coach with a hefty transfer kitty.

According to the Daily Mail, the Argentine manager put pet to paper on a new long-term contract on Thursday, committing his future to the club until 2021.

While Spurs have just confirmed an outlay of £27.5 million on their manager [fee via the DM], the club appear set to back their coach in the market.

The tabloid note that despite the considerable outgoings involved in the club’s planned new stadium—the Lilywhites are set to offer Poch a transfer budget of £60 million in order for him to bolster Tottenham’s squad.

The North London heavyweights impressed this season, even if their title tilt did fall short during the final stages of the campaign.

However, while they will be looking to go one further in the EPL next term, they will also be looking to compete in the Champions League, and will doubtless require a few new faces in order to compete on both fronts.
