Tottenham are facing a major contract dilemma over Harry Kane.
It’s thought that talks with the striker are on hold until the end of the season, as it’s not all that long since he put pen to paper on a new deal.
However, the Daily Mail report that he is now looking for more, and is hoping to double his £60,000 a week wages.
All this has reportedly come about because he wants a similar salary to fellow England stars Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy. The one problem is that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy won’t budge on his pledge not to pay any player over £100,000 a week.
Kane has shown no desire to leave as yet, but the Lilywhites’ policy is certainly making things tricky.
As club captain, Hugo Lloris is currently Tottenham’s top earner on around £90,000 a week, and he also seems to be stalling on a new deal as like Kane, he could pick up a much bigger pay packet elsewhere.
The 23-year-old forward is the priority, though, particularly as he continues to be linked with Manchester United and AC Milan.
Their new stadium means Spurs can’t afford to be too extravagant with wages, but they can’t afford to upset last season’s Golden Boot winner, and they need to do everything they can to keep him.
