According to a report in the Sun, Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing Moussa Sissoko is earning nearly twice the amount of wages as their top goal scorer since the start of the 2014/15 season – Harry Kane.
It is reported that Kane has reiterated his desire to be the highest earner at the club and that it has been rejected by the chairman Daniel Levy. This has sparked rumours of the English forward being linked with a host of Premier League clubs. Kane is understood to be on a £60,000-per-week deal at the club which is £35,000 less than what Sissoko draws every seven days.
Tottenham fans, undoubtedly baffled by the news, took to social media to express their disappointment. Take a look:
Kane could be on £200k a week at many other clubs & Levy ain’t giving him what Sissoko earns … FFS
Our only FWD for 2 going on 3 years

For the record, Harry Kane is categorically NOT paid £60k/week. I don’t know what Sissoko is on, but I doubt it is £35k more than Kane.

Sissoko 95k per week.
Tottenham are reluctant to pay Kane above 65k. Sigh. 😑

Typical Levy- won’t pay out for Kane’s wages to match Moussa Sissoko’s!

@m__webb Sissoko on £90k pw and Kane £60k and talks stalled. I take the media BS with a pinch of salt but wage difference probably true

@RabzStarz97 Kane’s a top player, imagine Sissoko earning more money🙄

However, a few fans chose not believe the news:
People foolish to believe Levy would not pay Kane same wage if not more than Sissoko your mad, Levy knows Kane’s importance to club.#THFC

Spurs fans of all people are believing the sun that Sissoko is on 95k a week and Kane wants higher

Got to laugh at story in the Sun as if Sissoko is paid £95k per week & if he was I’m sure if Kane asked to be on same he would get it 😂😂
