Tottenham boss Pochettino bemoans financial gap to Man United & Man City

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that his side and, the vast majority of Premier League teams, can not compete with the two Manchester clubs when it comes to the transfer market.

During the summer transfer window, Jose Mourinho's United splashed out big money on the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof, while Pep Guardiola's Citizens broke the bank for the likes of Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva.

Pochettino spent around £80 million on five new additions, while Tottenham have also been able to tie down their key players such as Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli to long-term contracts.

But the Spurs manager believes United and City still have the capability to make any signing they want.

And Pochettino insists the club have little choice but to conduct themselves differently in the transfer market compared to their rivals.

While it was the most the club have spent since that infamous summer of 2013 when they were flush with cash following Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid, it isn't close to the amount spent by the two clubs now leading the Premier League, having also profited from the sales of Kyle Walker to Manchester City and Kevin Wimmer to Stoke City, among others.

'It's the big difference today'.
