Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer does not believe Tottenham’s reported £150m transfer budget is a lot of money.
According to The Sun, new Tottenham manager Antonio Conte will be given £150m to get the north London club going again.
Spurs have been disappointing so far this season, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League table. This comes after a very poor 2020/21 campaign, where they were just about able to scrape a European football place.
Is £150m enough for Conte?
It is evident that Conte has a lot of work to do, but Palmer has questioned whether £150m will be enough to help the Italian to get the job done.
“£150 million is not a lot of money as a war chest ,” the ex-Leeds United player said to TIF. “So we’ll have to see what he can do at Tottenham. I honestly believe Conte was hanging on for the Man United job.”
That would obviously take a large chunk out of Conte’s reported budget, so perhaps £150m will not be enough if the Italian is looking to bring in multiple high-calibre players.
