In recent weeks, the future of England right-back Kyle Walker has been called into question. Many reputable news outlets have hinted that Manchester City are prepared to double his current wages in a bid to tempt the defender into a Summer move to the North West.
Speculation has also began surrounding the commitment of stalwart centre-back Toby Alderweireld. It has been suggested by The Daily Mail that the Belgian demands roughly £110,000 per week to put him on a par with club’s highest earners.
In spite of this, Tottenham and Daniel Levy remain confident of holding on to their players. When pressed by the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust, Levy declared that he envisages all the players to honour their contracts. As reported by HITC Sport Levy said:
“All players were under contracts, contracts they were happy to sign at the time. They would be expected to honour those contracts.”
Alderweireld’s contract runs out in 2019, but the club do have the option of extending his contract further. In regards to Walker however, following his performance against West Ham on Friday which saw Tottenham’s title challenge all but ended by the part-timers… I mean the Irons… many fans have called out for Walker’s sale.
What do you think? Should we cash in? Or should we give him a wage rise?
