Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has denied his team are Premier League title contenders but does believe his side can achieve this feat in the future.
Spurs are set to sign Brazilian attacking midfielder Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala after the player had a medical in London yesterday. The fee is rumoured to be around £30 million which would take Spurs spending spree to around £90 million, by far their most lavish summer of spending ever.
Although the North London club are still likely to sell Gareth Bale, it would seem the Welshman has been more than adequately replaced, but Villas-Boas believes he needs time to assert his side as title contenders.
"We haven't had lots of time to work with them, but we believe that in the future we can definitely achieve it," he said.
Franco Baldini's influence seems to have taken Tottenham to new heights considering that should Willian join, Spurs will be on a par with Manchester City in terms of summer expenditure, a prospect most people could not have foreseen.
With such a huge summer of changes in the Premier League, many would consider the White Hart Lane club a genuine title challenger but AVB doesn't agree just yet.
"I don't agree that we can be title contenders for this season coming because everything is happening, everything is changing," he added.
It seems many people are realising the potential of Tottenham's new-look team and when asked if his side could achieve the quadruple, AVB didn't rule out the mountainous task.
"It could only be a dream to achieve it with Tottenham, but it is something that can happen in the future. We are building a very, very strong side," he concluded.
