Rodgers to cost Tottenham more than £5m
Tottenham will have to pay more than £5m to acquire the services of Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers, according to Goal.com.
The north London club could lose their current manager Harry Redknapp this summer, with the 65-year-old favourite to be appointed England’s new manager by the FA.
That would leave Spurs with a big gap to fill and Rodgers, along with Jose Mourinho and David Moyes, is one of the names thought to be high up on the list should Redknapp leave.
Goal.com claims that Rodgers, who signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with the Swans in February, is earning around £1.5m-2m per year and it would cost Spurs upwards of £5m to persuade chairman Huw Jenkins to allow the highly-rated manager to leave.
That release clause is unlikely to put Tottenham off, however Rodgers, who has admitted that he would like to manage a top club one day, may have some doubts about taking charge of a Champions League side ‘too early’.
