Very little leaks out of Spurs but it's generally accepted that there was money to be spent in the summer of 2018. We definitely went in for de Jong, Ndombele, de Ligt and a few others and missed out for varying reasons. It's distinctly possible that chucking a whole load more money at the problem might have helped but as Power Spurs says, we had probably agreed with the banks that we would restrict our spending to a given level whilst the final cost of the stadium was unknown. Leaving some of the deals to the last minute probably didn't help either. Having signed new, long term deals with AIA and Nike for lots of lovely cash, we're in a whole new era now and this summer we were able to have a net spend for the first time in a decade.I can't be arsed to look up the exact level but it's likely to be around £100m and we would have spent a further £75m or so in landing Dybala and sorting out his image rights mess. Having the money, whilst building the stadium, would have been great but our owners don't operate like that. Wishing that wasn't the case is the dictionary definition of futile.
