They don't need to pay Kane 400k pw, he'd join on the same terms he's on at Spuds, he'd probably accept a paycut to join City.

City are prepared to offer one of Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus, 24, Algeria captain Riyad Mahrez, 30, Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva, 26, or England attacker Raheem Sterling, 26, as part of a deal to tempt Spurs into selling the England captain.

Betfair sportsbook have taken down the market. Someone took a score at 1.14 on the exchange a short while ago only to see 1.6 available 5 minutes later. That must feel sick. Local rumours suggest his wife doesn't want to move, but the journey is only 3 hours so that shouldn't present a major problem either. The names Angoose has mentioned will not be coming to Spurs so I would take that with a pinch of salt.

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has signed a new four-year contract keeping him at the club until 2025.

Son, 29, has scored 107 goals in 280 appearances for the club since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.

He has been capped 93 times by South Korea, scoring 27 goals and appearing at two World Cups.

"There was no decision. It was easy. I'm so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon," he said.

"It was already a big honour to play here for six years. The club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I'm very happy to be here."

What City player in their right mind would move to Spurs? They'd have to be getting well paid to do it and it will be City paying them, not Spurs. Money is the only thing that can make Spurs attractive to a City player. There are plenty of other clubs with CL football who'd be more attractive otherwise. City mightn't be willing to sell to some of them but they'd prob get a better deal for all of them than they'll get from Spurs.

But these journos always paint it as if it's just a case of City saying 'you're going to Spurs'. The player has to be willing to go.

Must be some happy to go to spurs
to get a game.

Not all players happy sitting on bench

A year or two at spurs, with transfer
bonus, followed by another move
and transfer bonus.

All while shortfall in wages made up by City.




Plenty happy to sit on bench, play golf

None of them have to go to Spurs to get a game. 3 of the 4 started the CL final and are established regulars. The other one shouldn't be attractive to Spurs as a Kane replacement.

It was dragon, but I think the Coalition government under Cameron reduced it. I remember this because the Liberals argued that the basic rate threshold should increase to reduce the tax burden for the lower paid and it took me completely out of tax for the first time, although by then I was on a pension.

246 footballers now under investigation – almost equivalent to ten Premier League squads


HMRC investigations of footballers have almost trebled from 87 to 246 in just the last year* as the taxman targets ‘image rights’ deals that it believes are being used to avoid tax, our research shows.

The number of players under investigation is now almost equivalent to ten 25-man Premier League squads.

HMRC is targeting what it sees as over-aggressive use of ‘image rights’ deals, in which players are paid additional money on top of their salary for use of their image by the team in advertising and endorsements. This money is commonly paid to a company set up by the player for this purpose and is only taxed at the 19% corporation tax rate, rather than the 45% income tax rate paid by high earners.

HMRC believes many of these deals amount to tax avoidance, particularly in cases where players who are not household names are paid a significant percentage of their compensation in image rights payments. In some cases image rights companies are based offshore, reducing tax paid even further.

Elliot Buss, partner at our Newport office says: “HMRC believes that lots of lesser-known footballers are effectively avoiding tax by getting paid huge sums for image rights that HMRC views as overpriced.”

“The image rights of the likes of Paul Pogba and Mohamed Salah are undoubtedly worth millions of pounds a year. However, if you are second-choice left back in the Championship getting paid a great deal in image rights payments, then this is likely to trigger an investigation by the taxman. You may have to make a robust argument to HMRC to show how the value of the image rights has been arrived at.

No-one is paying 160m.

400k a week is quite poor for such a transfer. Kane must regret signing such a long contract, he'd be able to demand £1m+ a week otherwise.

Manchester City say reports they have agreed a £160m deal for Tottenham striker Harry Kane are nonsense. (Manchester Evening News)

Tottenham maintain they have no intention of selling the 27-year-old England captain this summer. (Football London)

Although Kane is increasingly confident Tottenham are willing to let him move on. (Times)

Manchester City have agreed personal terms with Kane of £350,000 a week and are willing to bid as much as £120m. (Star)

The summer rumour mill continues .......
