I think you're right. Spurs are reportedly the world's thirteenth-richest club, and therefore are not short of a few bob. Despite this, the Spurs board have always been prepared to sell their best players if the price is right.
Apparently, the club are willing to double his wages to £150,000 per week "just to keep him". In fact, that would also boost any calculated transfer fee whilst leaving him on lower money than 8 other Premiership players.
A cynical observer might think that by raising his wage by £75,000 per week, and thus boosting his transfer value by (say) £10million, the club could sell him before the September transfer deadline for an extra £10million for a net additional outlay of £1.5million.
New Bentleys all round in the boardroom?
Jeez thats serious money we are talking here.
Praying that he stays but still reckon a lack of Champions League action will be a deciding factor.
Just have a feeling we could see Bale going one way and Modric plus money to Spurs.
Assuming of course Levi hasnt browned "Modders" off over the previous transfer shannanigans.
