Reports from the Sun claim that Tottenham have been coughing up a whopping £3.8m each week to pay the entire workforce on the ground of their new stadium.
The stadium was due to be opened on September 15 against Liverpool, but delays have pushed it further and further back, with some rumours saying that fans may have to wait until 2019.
The earliest possible date for a grand opening is November 24 against Chelsea.
At peak demand in August, there were as many as 3,800 people working on the site across the two shifts through the day and night.
Some electricians were reportedly paid £400-a-day for their services, after a fault in the fire safety system electrics halted the original opening date.
An industry publication Construction Enquirer calculated that on average, workers were being paid £1,000 a week over the month of August.
Multiplying this by the 3,800 workers, that makes a huge fee of £3.8m a week, over double the wages of the entire Tottenham Hotspur playing staff.
Will it all be worth it?
