Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Michael Brown has revealed that he has been told of a special clause in Harry Kane’s current Spurs contract whereby no one at the North London club can earn more than the England captain.
According to Sportac, Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele are currently the highest earners at Tottenham (other than Gareth Bale who is on loan from Real Madrid), with the pair both currently earning £200,000 a week.
While discussing Son’s contract talks, Brown revealed that any new deal handed to the South Korean would not be worth more than Kane’s due to the clause in the striker’s contract.
The pundit told Football Insider: “I’d be surprised if it was £200,000-a-week, I would, because of the wage structure there, I’ve been told [there’s a clause] it doesn’t go above Harry Kane.”
However, Brown backed Son to put pen to paper on a new deal at Spurs given how well things are going for the 28-year-old at the club.
He added: “It’s all about him signing his contract, I think he’s in such a good place, why would you not sign a five-year contract, playing in this Spurs side?
“He’s got a great role, he’s scoring goals, creating goals and they’re up there at the top of the league so I think why would you not go enjoy the next couple of years and see where that goes.
“Yes, he’s of great interest to a lot of people but he’s fantastic.”
