- Tottenham cannot afford to spend like Man City and Man United says Pochettino.
- City spent £220m while United spent £150m compared to Spurs' £90m on transfers this season.
- Tottenham are currently spending a lot to develop their stadium.
Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club manager Mauricio Pochettino has indicated that even the club is big, they cannot afford to spend as much
as Manchester City and Manchester United who are currently separated at the top of the Premier League table by just one goal.
Manchester City and their manager Pep Guardiola spent around £220 million on a massive squad overhaul while Jose Mourinho and Manchester United spent £150m on Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof this season.
Tottenham meanwhile only spent £90m in bringing in players after earning £50m from the sale of Kyle Walker.
Tottenham Hotspurs are also directing a sizeable chuk of investment into the development of their stadium and as a result their manager believes they are not like the Manchester Clubs who can afford to spend so much on players.
"The difference these days between clubs in the Premier League is that there are clubs, like City and United, who sign who they want and when they want," he told beIN Sports.
"Then there are big teams, like us, who sign when we can and who we can. It's the big difference today."
