According to The Independent the club are hoping to secure the long term futures of Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld over the next few weeks, with the Kane set to be offered a huge new bumper deal and the defender’s representatives in line to meet with the club’s hierarchy.
It’s says Kane’s case should be relatively straight forward, Alderweireld is a touch more complicated, with Kane’s current deal running until 2022, having signed it at the end of 2016.
It adds that Spurs are eager to reward him [Kane] with an agreement that better befits his value, along with protecting him against growing interest from some of the biggest clubs in the game.
It adds that we will thereby double his wages to around £200,000 a week with extra incentives on top of that. Sources say there may be still some issue over the length, as Spurs want to make it a seven-year deal.
With Alderweireld’s contract it’s a bit more complicated. It runs out in 2019 and the article adds that Spurs have the option to extend it until 2020, however that would trigger a clause that would allow him to leave for £25m during a brief window in the summer of 2019.
It adds that there is also the issue that the Belgian wants a contract that reflects his senior role in the team, not to mention the fact he is viewed as one of the best centre-halves in the world.
The article adds that Alderweireld and his representatives will meet with Daniel Levy this weekend, and sources close to the player believe a new contract offer could be imminent.
