Spurs are a side in the Premier League who have been steadily building and progressing over the last few years.
They’re well known for wanting to do things the right way, especially with Daniel Levy as chairman, and this has served them well as they have now become one of the top four sides in the country. They also have a new stadium that is in the process of being built too but one question that always arises is whether they will be able to keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
One of the negatives often levelled at Spurs and Daniel Levy is the fact that their wage structure isn’t in line with the other sides chasing for a Champions League place. Kyle Walker left the club to join Man City citing one of the reasons as finances and Danny Rose has also spoken out about his displeasure with how much the club are paying players right now.
Other clubs in the Premier League will be more than capable of doubling and even perhaps trebling the wages that both Harry Kane and Dele Alli are on and this is always going to be of interest to players, especially with a footballing career being so short. There is talk that the wage structure will be altered after Spurs move into their new home, due to the fact that they’ll be bring in more revenue due to the increase in capacity for example.
Many people will look at Spurs and feel that them being able to compete with the likes of the Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal and actually consistently qualify for the Champions League as a form of success. However, players want to win things, they want to win trophies and titles and so far Spurs have drawn a blank in that respect.
There’s no doubt that they have they players, they also have a great manager in Mauricio Pochettino too, but the longer the drought goes on the more the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane may begin to question whether they’ll need to move on in order to win things in their careers.
Dele Alli is a good player who has certainly proven himself as capable of playing for one of the top clubs in the Premier League but recently his form has been inconsistent. While other top clubs will certainly be likely to take an interest in him should he wish to move on, he’s not in the same league as Harry Kane.
Kane is currently one of the best strikers in the world and he could quite easily slot in at a team such as Real Madrid and continue to deliver the goods. He’s scored a remarkable 133 goals in 200 games for Spurs and has also hit 12 in 23 for England too. He’s one of the hottest properties in world football right now and if Spurs don’t start to add to the trophy cabinet soon, he could find a move elsewhere hard to resist.
