Tottenham are reportedly confident Dele Alli will sign a new deal, despite the player being in the process of changing agents.
The England midfielder is just over a year into the six-year arrangement the player signed last September – but it is understood Alli has been approached by Spurs to offer him fresh terms and another significant pay rise.
Alli’s current deal earns the player £50,000 a week, and is it claimed his new contract will see his pay go up to £80,000 a week.
The Daily Telegraph claims Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is confident Alli will sign, despite the player recently having ditched his long-term representative Rob Segal.
However, with Alli currently being sought by some of the world’s biggest agents, with the ‘promise’ of a move to Manchester United or Real Madrid on offer, Tottenham fans must be worried that the wages being offered by Tottenham will not keep Alli at the club for the long term.
The Telegraph, however, writes that there is a growing optimism that Alli will sign the extension.
Matt Law writes: ‘Spurs are currently preparing a new contract offer and believe they can reach an agreement before he formally changes agent, which might not be until after the World Cup.
‘Alli is likely to be offered around £80,000-a-week to add an extra year to his existing deal, which would put him ahead of Christian Eriksen, but would still leave him some way short of top earner Harry Kane, who pockets roughly £100,000-a-week.
‘Although Alli could earn significantly more by leaving Tottenham, the club are optimistic he will put pen to paper on a new deal with the promise of another pay rise if he continues to perform.’
