Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told The Daily Mail that Tottenham Hotspur may have to sell players in the summer transfer window.

Arsene Wenger has delivered a final parting shot at Tottenham, warning his arch-rivals their stadium move will leave them in a financial straitjacket.

According to The Daily Mail, the new White Hart Lane will cost £1 billion, and the Frenchman has suggested that Spurs may have to sell their players to Arsenal.

It, however, meant the 68-year-old went from buying the likes of Robert Pires to downscaling to Gervinho for the same price - £11million. "You could smell the soul of every guy that played there", said Wenger. £100m? So they might get more supply, but they have to face it. But they will have to face it'.

When requested whether or not Tottenham shall be pressured to promote gamers to finance the stadium change, Wenger quipped: 'To Arsenal, possibly.' As soon as the mud settles following Wenger's departure, the membership's transfer to the Emirates will invariably be seen as one of many integral components of his legacy.

It will be tricky for Tottenham to balance being competitive and successful and balancing the books in the coming years.

But the Home Office didn't register that she was no longer British until August 16 previous year . All four said they would run again at by-elections that could be held as early as June 16.

Wenger is no stranger to the travails of moving into a new home, following Arsenal's switch from Highbury to the Emirates in 2006.

As well as being limited to what he could spend on transfers, Wenger also saw some of his prized assets sold on. But it is a big attraction, a massive new stadium, a great team.

However, Wenger - who will farewell the Londoners following Sunday's trip to Huddersfield Town - has no regrets as he said: "I believe Highbury had a special spirit".

"We had a double handicap". There is no club that can turn people who wanted to attend the game down. It's a cathedral, a church. "When you have that you have less good players", he added. It took us some time to really feel at house there.

'It's a fantastic stadium - but there was something special at Highbury that you could never recreate when you build something new'.

"I lived here for 22 years, my daughter has spent her whole life here and she is going to university here", he says.
