Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger stands by his tight rein on transfer spending, according to reports.
The Arsenal board are understood to have given Wenger assurances that he can spend whatever money he requires.
“I personally believe the only way to be a manager is to spend the club’s money as if it were your own because if you don’t do that you’re susceptible to too many mistakes,” he said in Alan Curbishley’s new book Gamechangers.
“You make big decisions and I believe you have to act like it’s your own money, like you’re the owner of the club and you can identify completely with the club. Because if you don’t do that I think you cannot go far.”
