Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas wants to spend big this summer.

Villas-Boas aims to spend big to build a team around Gareth Bale and has ­confirmed his interest in ­Barcelona ­striker David Villa. "Making it (the Champions League) or not, it shouldn't be too different in what you have to evolve to make you better.

"If we don't achieve it, then it is one more sign that you have to push up to get closer to that group."
