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

  1. It’s NOT a report! It’s a piece of malicious fiction conjured up out of thin air by one Sami Mokbel, a semi-literate, hack, who fabricates clickbait for the Daily Mail. The paper that Daniel Levy banned from Spurs press briefings for continually reporting lies about us. The story is utter bullshit, but nevertheless has been picked up and regurgitated by The Sun, yet another notorious cesspool of prevaricating journalistic lowlife. Do you really think these tossers have any insight into Dele Alli’s future contract demands? Exactly, none! So, just don’t pay any attention to them.

  3. This.

    According to the wage structure wages, as a percentage of revenues, go up as revenues go up. Higher match-day income (Wembley then new stadium), CL and TV money, commercial deals etc., mean that revenues are going up. Levy is more than happy to award improved contracts yearly – it avoids what is going on down the road. This is all totally independent of bobby journos mouthing off in disreputable media outlets.

    Dele needs to regain his focus.

  4. Totally agree with Matt88008 that the article is a piece of the usual Daily Mail nonsense. Don't make Dele out to be a greedy money grabber.
