Tottenham looking to offer Brendan Rodgers a bumper contract


Tottenham Hotspur are determined to lure Brendan Rodgers away from Leicester City this summer.

According to Football Insider, the London club are prepared to offer him a bumper contract which would triple his wages.

The Leicester manager has done an excellent job at the King Power Stadium, and it is no surprise that Spurs are looking to appoint him as a replacement for Jose Mourinho.

Rodgers is close to guiding the Foxes to Champions League football, but he has recently claimed that he will not be taking over at Spurs.

However, the Londoners are not prepared to abandon their pursuit, and they will be eager to convince Rodgers to change his mind.

He has done well to implement a free-flowing attacking style of football at Leicester and is excellent at nurturing young talents.

Raheem Sterling, Harvey Barnes, Moussa Dembele and Kelechi Iheanacho are amongst the players who have flourished under Rodgers.

We previously covered reports that Spurs are ready to end their pursuit of Rodgers as it could be an expensive appointment for them.

Leicester want compensation of around £20 million, and Rodgers would command wages of around £12.5m-per-year.

There are conflicting reports regarding Spurs’ managerial hunt, but it would be a surprise if Rodgers ends up getting the job.
