Daniel Levy Ready To Smash Tottenham’s Wage Bill For Harry Kane – £110,000-per-week Salary To Be Increased

Published

Tottenham will break their wage structure to give themselves the best chance of keeping their mercurial striker Harry Kane. The 24-year-old underlined his importance to Tottenham with his second successive Premier League hat-trick as they thrashed Southampton 5-2 on Boxing Day.

Despite the striker’s exploits, he currently earns £110,000-a-week – a modest fee compared to some of his top-flight peers. It is an open secret that Spanish giants Real Madrid are big admirers of Kane and are already believed to be lining up a move for the striker, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy well aware of the growing interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.

The England international has become one of the best players in the world football but his relatively low wage of £110,000-a-week does not bode well for his quality. According to Daily Mail, Spurs are to review Kane’s contract at the end of the season with an idea to offer him an improved deal – a fourth pay increase since August 2014.

Kane is the club’s top earner and his bonuses are particularly attractive. Levy has a history of rewarding his best players with regular pay rises provided they keep performing at the highest level. Former Spurs superstar Gareth Bale’s contract was revised on a yearly basis with additional bonuses before the Welshman left the club to join Real Madrid for a then world record fee of £85.3million.

However, Kane is thought to have a far greater emotional attachment to Tottenham and is planning to mark his significant 2017 with a special photograph featuring his eight hat-trick balls.

“At the minute, they’re all stored away in bags,” said Kane. “I still haven’t got anywhere to display them. I’ll have to talk to my missus and get a room for them somewhere. I’ll have to get them out before the end of the year and have a picture with them. That will be a good one.

“It’s just been a great year, with the birth of my daughter as well. It’s been amazing, and hopefully 2018 will be even better.”

Kane also insisted that he wants to win trophies with Spurs.

“I’ve always said team trophies are what I want to achieve,” added the Spurs hitman.

Indeed, Spurs must offer Kane a substantial increase in pay if we are to stop him from leaving the club.
