Tottenham's summer transfer window will presumably revolve around cheap deals.
With a £175m loan taken from the government, it suggests that Daniel Levy's coffers are rather empty when it comes to investing huge reserves into the club.
That isn't good news. The north Londoners finished well off the pace in sixth place and came nowhere near replicating their run to the Champions League final.
What's worse, is that Arsenal's FA Cup triumph means they also have to enter the Europa League in the qualification stages.
They are often easy matches on the field of play, but with a potential long-haul flight and match fitness to consider, it's hardly ideal.
That being said, moves are being made in the transfer market - an area where so far, Levy is thriving.
Despite their lack of cash, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is on the verge of joining for £15m.
That could be followed up with the likes of Callum Wilson and Milan Skriniar
However, a more sensational move could occur according to Football Insider.
The player has been linked with a return to Spurs for a considerable period of time, but there are reports emerging again that Gareth Bale could sign for Tottenham.
The Welshman was left out of Real Madrid's clash with Manchester City on Friday evening and his time in Spain is surely coming to an end.
He looks more focused on golf than football, but his former employers could offer him a way out.
FI claim that Spurs are readying a loan move for the 31-year-old and are keeping tabs on his bizarre situation in the Spanish capital.
Tottenham were in talks with the player's camp last summer but terms failed to be agreed.
GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...
This would be a remarkable statement of intent from a club who are unlikely to be too powerful in the market this summer.
Bale is a world-class player - his overhead kick in the Champions League final only a few years ago is testament to that and his mentality is to be admired.
He has become a serial winner, reigning supreme in Europe's premier competition on a number of times. It's hardly a surprise that Harry Redknapp deemed him "scary" when referring to Bale's talent.
Although Spurs could do with a slice of his technical ability, his winning mindset could prove vital for a side who haven't won a trophy since 2008.
It's a hoodoo Jose Mourinho is all too keen to banish but with the help of someone like Bale, their duck could finally be broken.
It's been 12 long years without a major honour to their name - it simply has to come to an end.
