Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has said that star striker Harry Kane should be getting paid in the region of £300,000-a-week if the club were to offer him a wage rise.
The England forward has been in imperious form in front of goal this season, having already netted at a rate of a goal-a-game, with 28 strikes in 28 appearances across all competitions, including a double in the 4-0 win over Everton on Saturday.
His impressive goal scoring prowess is said to have alerted the attention of the likes of Spanish giants Real Madrid over a possible transfer swoop, but Redknapp says that he cannot see the 24-year-old leaving his boyhood club if he is handed a new contract deal, which the former Spurs boss believes should be giving him a huge £15.6million-a-year.
He told talkSPORT’s The Warm Up programme (13/01, 11:00): “I don’t see Harry Kane being a player who leaves Tottenham. I think he’s happy there.
“If he gets a good contract and he’s looked after I don’t seem him chasing big dreams elsewhere. Tottenham are a big club, they are in the top four or five clubs in this country so I would think he’s quite happy.
“With Raheem Sterling they are talking about £250,000 a week so Harry Kane has got to be £300,000 a week. It’s great for Tottenham if they can hang onto their players.”
With his brace against the Toffees at Wembley, Kane has now scored 20 Premier League goals in each of the last four seasons, with a total of 127 strikes in 193 appearances across all competitions for the north London club.
He will be hoping to add to his tally when the Lilywhites head to Southampton next weekend, as they look to push for a top four spot come the end of the season.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are in the hunt for a £17.5million-rated Champions League enforcer.
