It seems customary nowadays that whenever Spurs have a positive result there will be a report somewhere trying to undermine Mauricio Pochettino’s team and today is no different.
Matt Hughes from The Times has written that certain players in the Tottenham Hotspur squad allegedly believe Harry Kane sold himself short during his contract negotiations, when he signed a new deal in the summer,inadvertently doing the same to them.
Harry is Tottenham’s highest earner on £100,000 a week but given his exploits in the last year he could easily command treble that at any other major club. The article goes on to say their are plenty of players earning more than Kane at other clubs including the likes of Andre Gray & Nathaniel Clyne.
There is of course a pop at our stature, stating that despite him being happy at Spurs there is a danger of his love for the club hindering his career. The article also states that Harry’s talent and accomplishments may well out grow those of Spurs and questions whether the club is a fitting stage for his talents.
Hughes goes on to write about how Harry’s current form is likely to have resulted in admiring glances from some of Europe’s top clubs. Manchester United had an inquiry dismissed eighteen months ago and with uncertainty over Gareth Bale’s future in Madrid, Spurs could again find their resolve tested by the Spanish giants.
The article states that Harry could do a lot worse than push for a new contract which will accurately reflect his market value but that Kane is not the type to be a contract rebel and even less a mercenary but at the same time he should not let Tottenham exploit his loyalty.
Fellow Spurs fans what are your thoughts on this? Is it another attempt by certain members of the media to undermine Daniel Levy and his methods? Or does Matt Hughes have a point, that Spurs need to wake up and join the real world before its too late. Let us know your thoughts.
