It may only be half of what Andre Villas Boas had last summer but the Telegraph is reporting that new manager Mauricio Pochettino will have a sizable budget of approximately 50 million pounds to spend as he sees fit. This inflated number is likely possible due to incentives Real Madrid has paid over following the roles our sleeper agents, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, had in capturing Real Madrid's 10th European Championship.

While fixing up Spurs might be seen as a daunting task for many, Pochettino can be viewed as somewhat of a 'Super Nanny' of managers due to the outstanding work he has done during his tenures at RCD Espanyol as well as Southampton. A sizable war chest will help make his job at Spurs somewhat more manageable.

Along with the new transfer budget comes a flurry of rumors which range from the manageable, such as matching the £8million release clause QPR put on Loic Remy's contract to the somewhat whimsical such as letting new signing Roberto Soldado and club legend Michael Dawson leave. While these rumors might just be rumors, we are dealing with one of the most unpredictable wheeler-dealer clubs and if there's one thing learned after observing countless Tottenham transfer windows its that anything is possible.

The telegraph also reports that Poch is ready to whip Tottenham's players into shape with a military-style bootcamp regime. Much like the one he used at Southampton, Pochettino's new system emphasizes grueling training sessions so that the players are fit enough to play his brand of uptempo, attacking football.

The Pochettino era may have only begun mere hours ago but it certainly seems like the wheels are already in motion to begin Tottenham's assault on the top four.
