I'lll hold my hand up here. I saw it in the media and put it up on here and quite honestly I should have rubbished it there and then. I'd be very disappointed if our transfer budget is still being leaked like it was when H&G were around. It puts you on the back foot from day one.
We know the club is sorting its finances out so ther will be some pain there but on the other side there's the new PL deal, sponsorhips and other stuff. A lack of European football might bite though.
Short answer is we don't know, and we shouldn't.
I agree, though I hate it, because you always have Chelsea or Arsenal who are pretty open about who they're looking at, and what the prices are. But, unlike previous summers, and while not many share my view, I'm excited as always, but confident that we'll get players of a much higher calibre technically, physically, & creativity wise. No more one trick ponies(tails)
There's no chance any media source anywhere outside of a stone's throw from Boston (let alone anywhere) would have any idea, because I'm sure they don't have a full idea yet, and the only chance 20M is even worth saying would be as a Gross figure, if we were to end up selling 1-2 players we don't want to, or might not expect to, and get high fees for them, like Skrtel and/or Reina, perhaps a Shelvey or Henderson. I'm not for selling any, though, whatever's happened to the ironman Skrtel, is just shocking after his impeccanle 2012.
Rest assured, we'll have more than 20M to spend. Especially if you consider what the owners see Brendan did with 20M in January on Philippe and Danny (while exploring Ince & Cuenca from Barca), and where they may still be in the know and have belief in Assaidi who's an enigma, and Allen who now and fallen apart, needing surgery. Borini, will really have to have a great summer, even if to gain re-sale value.

With Suarez supposedly saying to any CL clubs"come get me" despite saying he's happy at trhe club thet doesn't help things.. It would help financially in terms of buying more players from the sale.. However it'll not help us long term as we'd be trying to get a striker used to the club again..
