Harry Kane is a goal machine.

Rinsed by Spurs big time, they were class, we were awful, a true shocker.

Kane will be even more sought after now. Golden boot winner 2 years running with 3 months out is impressive.

Do you think you'll keep him without giving him £250k a week? One more season at best

I'm sure he's on a decent goal bonus like all the top players that had theirs leaked. Prob made double his weekly wage last night.

Spurs need to be paying Chelsea or Man City money to keep their stars, no loyalty anymore when the likes of Madrid come calling.

Mahrez will jump this year and prob double his wages. Think he takes 100k now, which is prob more than Kane's on. Madness.

I'm sure he did, are you suggesting players that are on £250k a week don't get goal bonuses?

The fact he's earning £100k a week. The same as squad players at other top 6 clubs.

I dont think Mahrez will get more money anywhere else, same as vardy, they would have rinsed Leicester last summer on contracts, theres only maybe 10 clubs in all of top euro leagues who can match or get close to what players can get paid in the prem now with the way tv money is distributed here.

I still think he will go though

English player leading top goalscorer* for a second season. Let's just discuss when he's off Roll Eyes

Spurs did well to keep Harry (and the squad) last summer after two great seasons. Money is killing the game. The more you pay them the less they will care when things aren't going their way. Just look at United as a prime example who haven't been able to buy wins since Fergie left.

*Should lukaku have his flip flops on

Davinho wrote: I'm sure he did, are you suggesting players that are on £250k a week don't get goal bonuses?

I'm suggesting he might be happy with what he's on, with a ridiculous amount of money coming his way every goal he scores, enjoying the progression of Spurs the last 4 seasons and looking at the title next season with his teammates who have just gone undefeated at home.

83 points would have won the title last season so he might feel like hanging around for Poch and scoring for fun for another season.

Anyway let's change the subject:

Man City are 15 points off the premier League Champions which is the same number of points Pellegrini finished behind Leicester last season. Absolutely woeful from Pep with the players he has at his disposal. Apart from putting more bums on seats at the Etihad on reputation alone what does he actually offer?

This is how I saw the race at the start of the season:
Pep > Conte > Klopp > Poch > Wenger > Mourinho

And how I'd rate it now:
Conte > Poch > Klopp > Wenger > Pep > Mourinho

And if United win Europa league and Arsenal FA Cup with champ league places unmoved:
Conte > Wenger > Mourinho > Poch > Klopp > Pep

i agree that the market rate is higher and the players should be payed this to avoid their heads being turned by inferior sides with bigger wallets but the likes or Madrid don't come calling every season…they are only interested in the Galacticos. As much as I love him, Kane is not in that catergory. Who is gonna buy him? Not gonna sell him to anyone else in the Premier League. It's one thing selling Walker for an inflated price but not your main striker.

^ Totally agree with the above. The only club i think could be interested would be united and if i was Kane i'd be more inclined to stay at spurs for the foreseeable.
