Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli is set to test his club’s strict wage structure in order to earn a major pay increase – with Real Madrid monitoring developments.
That is what is being reported in today’s Daily Mail, who claim that Dele, who signed a £50,000-a-week deal just twelve months ago is now looking for another pay rise as he continues to prove his worth following his bargain switch from MK Dons.
The Sun are also running with a similar version of the story and claim that the midfielder wants to become the highest paid player at the club, by commanding a £160,000 a week deal, which would take him above the current highest earners, Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane who earn £100,000 a week.
Dele currently has four years to run on his existing deal at Tottenham and his demands would put the club’s current wage structure to the test.
The Mail adds that there are plans to improve the current structure, but this is linked to continued success in the Champions League and enhanced revenue from the new stadium
