According to a report by Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are willing to triple Brendan Rodgers’ salary to tempt him to leave Leicester City.

After losing out to Bayern Munich in the race for Julian Nagelsmann and seeing Erik ten Hag pen a contract extension with Ajax, Spurs are now reportedly eyeing a move for Rodgers.

Some sources have suggested that the costs of signing the 48-year-old, including his salary and compensation owed to Leicester, has turned out to be too much for Spurs, with the North London club ready to abandon their pursuit.

However, Football Insider claims that Tottenham are not ready to give up their interest in Rodgers and are ready to ‘offer him the earth’ to bring in to the club.

It is said that Daniel Levy has rated the Northern Irish coach highly for a decade and is prepared to offer him a £15m-a-year salary and pay significant compensation to the Foxes in order to get his man.

Spurs Web Opinion

The club would likely prefer not to spend too extravagantly on a new manager under the current financial climate. However, Rodgers is clearly the only safe bet among the candidates available as there would be an element of gamble involved with signing the likes of Potter or Parker. So it is understandable if Levy has decided that it would be worthwhile to splash extra to bring the Leicester boss in.

  1. Why would Rogers leave Leicester for us , no money, a difficult chairman, no CL, a poor squad with only a couple of players worth keeping. We are in a fatal downward spiral and the fault lies with the disgraceful and inept decisions made by Levy and ultimately ENIC.
    We are stuffed and we all know it. Never felt so disheartened about the Spurs.

  2. Bending Todgers is a fungus man. The fine job he did losing the league with the scouse. Lester Titties are a two bob team that play above themselves, -like other fungus teams, Everbums, Pisspoor Chalice, Wet Bums, Wet Spam managed by fungus puppets- whrn they play against fungus opponents.
    Fungus is still running footy. How did Darren fungus get a point to win promo? Fungus time equaliser.
