“Does this make sense?”‘…Winger who ‘ruined’ in Saudi is paid higher than Son Heung-min? “Kane and Tottenham’s salary is number one!” Even if he’s a fan of Postecoglou…
Tottenham and Enze Postecoglou Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou wants a winger in the winter transfer window to strengthen his squad and win the title. The main man is Portuguese winger Jota.
He was a key player for Celtic between 2021 and 2023. In particular, he played a huge role in Celtic”s ‘Domestic Treble’ last season. In his two seasons under Postecoglou, he scored 28 goals and provided 26 assists in 83 games. An incredible performance. He was quickly becoming one of Postecoglou’s favorite players.
But ahead of this season, Jota made a shocking choice. At the age of 24, in the prime of his career, he left Europe for Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad. The same team that had Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.
Unable to resist the lure of ‘oil money’, his move to Saudi Arabia turned into a ‘nightmare’. Al Ittihad has been treating Zotta like a non-factor. According to local media, he has been dropped from the first-team squad and is seeking to have his contract terminated. He hasn’t played since September. He chose to follow the money. He “blew it”.
This has led to speculation that Jota could return to Europe, with Tottenham the favorite. “Postecoglou strongly wants the player,” local media reported. “Tottenham have agreed a deal for Zotta,” said Football Insider in the UK. “Tottenham have agreed a deal for Jota and will bring him in on loan in the January transfer window,” Football Insider confirmed.레모나토토 주소
Bringing a player that Postecoglou knows and can utilize well to Tottenham is no problem. It could even have a revitalizing effect on Spurs. The problem is, how much does he cost?
Jota earns a weekly wage of £200,000 ($327,000) at Al Ittihad. He has no intention of reducing his salary. If he goes on loan to Tottenham, Spurs will have to pay his salary. Jota still wants £200,000, and Spurs and Postecoglou are reportedly willing to match it.
That’s a ridiculous salary. Currently, Tottenham’s highest paid player is captain and ace Son Heung-min. He earns a weekly wage of £190,000 ($310 million). 200,000 is what Tottenham legend Harry Kane, who has since left for Bayern Munich, used to earn. He was number one on the team.
It doesn’t make sense to give a player who went to Saudi Arabia and bombed, the highest weekly wage in the team, even above Son Heung-min. He hasn’t played a lot of games in Saudi Arabia, so there’s a lot of concern about his form and fitness. He hasn’t even been tested in the EPL yet, so to pay him the highest salary in Tottenham? Who in Tottenham would agree and understand that?
“Postecoglou is a big fan of Zotta,” said Yardbarker from the United States. They’ve been working hard to sign him. Jota could come to Tottenham for £200,000 a week.”
“Tottenham are preparing to sign Jota in January. They are looking to strengthen their forward line in January to win the league. Postecoglou will move to bring in a player he knows well. Jota earns £200,000 a week at Al Ittihad,” he added.
“If Jota does come to Tottenham, it will be on loan. Postecoglou is desperate to reunite with Jota and will try to find a way to overcome his wages.”
