So it will be Roberto Martinez who will be the next manager to feel the pressure turned up more than a notch in the Premier League.

With the additional investment of Farhad Moshiri will come additional pain of trying to break into the top four next season – because what the men who put the money in want is a place on the big stage of the Champions League.

In many ways having a grand old club like Everton be the next heavily-financed pretenders to the throne is quite fitting.

Everton have produced many a successful and entertaining team through their history and to have them potentially among the top tier of clubs is certainly an interesting prospect – and it will be intriguing what kind of a reaction there is from the other side of Stanley Park.

However, money is no guarantee of success.

Despite being turned into the world’s richest council tenants back in 2008, it took Manchester City time to create the right squad and that elusive winning attitude to start putting silverware in a trophy cabinet that had been gathering dust for decades.

Equally this season has shown that you don’t have to have billions to make a challenge in the Premier League.

While I know that neither Leicester City or Tottenham are not short of a bob or two, they have both shown this season that judicious work in the transfer market and on the training field can produce both successful and attractive teams who are well capable of taking on some of their richer rivals.

Like all new investors Moshiri has suggested that it will be a ‘new era’ for the club and Everton boss Martinez has admitted he and his side need to “show we are ready to take the football club to the next level”.

Perhaps as football followers in England we should just be happy that Everton’s good fortune should up the ante once more and bring increased quality to the Premier League.

Now you can argue all day as to whether the Premier League is the best in the world, but it is certainly the most competitive.

In fact it is surprising that these investors seeking success with a soccer club carry on choosing the Premier League as the place to be.

While La Liga can argue they have the world’s top players the competition continues to be dominated by Barcelona and Madrids Atletico and Real and purchasing a stake in a club such as Villareal, Sevilla or Celta Vigo could almost ensure a Champions League place instantly.

Bayern Munich’s dominance of the Bundesliga, currently leading second placed Borussia Dortmund by eight points, and with four qualification places up for grabs surely makes Germany a market to gain quicker rewards.

But why they don’t go shopping in France is perhaps the most puzzling situation.

Paris SG are 13 points clear of the chasing and with two other Champions League qualifiers to come from Ligue 1, the purchase of a club with history like St Ettienne would seem a tidy move and I am led to believe that Nice can be quite a nice little spot to spend your time most of the year round.

So the progress of Everton nest season will be one to watch next term.

I just hope for Martinez sake that there is enough patience around Goodison Park to allow him to have a decent shot at showing how good a manager he can be.
