In what could be the longest transfer saga of the summer, Tottenham is not ready to back down on their asking price for Manchester City target, Kyle Walker.
The England right-back has decided that his future may not be at White Hart Lane. He has been looking for improved terms on his contract which he signed last Autumn, but Spurs are unwilling to agree to his demand.
He currently earns around £65,000 per week, a figure that he could double if he joins any of the top English sides with Manchester United and Manchester City interested.
Daniel Levy is a tough negotiator and has frustrated City’s effort at completing all their transfer business before the start of preseason.
Pep Guardiola may be close to clinching a deal for Juventus right back Dani Alves, but also wants Walker as Alves represents a gamble at his age, while Walker is a more proven alternative.
Tottenham is in no hurry, and are determined to get close to their £50 million valuation from Manchester City.
