Big wages on offer could prompt Tottenham deal with one of world’s biggest clubs

Though many of the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern would hate to see any of their current crop depart, reports from the Sun have proved interesting today. 

Clearly, Spurs are one of the most vibrant young sides in Europe and the idea of losing anyone isn’t the most popular, though money talks in the modern game.

Indeed, the report in question claims both Chelsea and Bayern Munich have moved ahead of Manchester City in the race to land White Hart Lane star Kyle Walker.

The England international is believed to be ready to leave north London after falling out with Mauricio Pochettino and the £40m fee touted has made it easier to swallow amongst our local Lillywhites.

That sort of money for a right-back would be a world-record sum, with both Bayern and the Blues thought to be keen.

Able to operate as either a standard right-back or a wing-back in a 3-4-3, the 26-year-old would fit in at Stamford Bridge, while the Bundesliga side are said to be on the hunt for a Philipp Lahm replacement.

With Walker reportedly acknowledging the fact he fact he could command wages of around £150k-p/w should he leave, the Spurs fans in the bar are ready to bid him farewell.

The sort of money on offer, as well as the presence of Kieran Trippier on Hotspur Way, means the Tottenham faithful here won’t be shedding too many tears.
