Tottenham offer Antonio Conte huge pay rise to stay at club past current season

Tottenham Hotspur have offered Antonio Conte a £1million-a-year pay rise to commit his future to the club.

Conte took over the reins in the opening months of last season, replacing the sacked Nuno Espirito Santo. However, his future at Spurs is relatively finite, as his contract is set to expire at the end of next season.

Conte is believed to be earning around £13m per season with the north Londoners. However, his salary could be set to increase to around £14m per year, if he puts pen to paper on a new deal.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Conte has been offered an extra £1m per year to sign a new deal. At present, he is set to depart the north Londoners when his contract expires next season.

Tottenham finished in fourth place last season and managed to qualify for the Champions League. The Italian currently has Tottenham occupying the same position, three points clear of Manchester United and seven clear of Liverpool.

They also qualified with flying colours to the Round of 16 in the Champions League. Only AC Milan stand between them and the quarter-finals of the competition. Before the World Cup, Conte hinted he would be ready to sign a new deal with the club if they are heading in the right direction.

“You know very well that my contract expires in June,” he said during a press conference in November. “Until that moment the club has to make the best evaluation. I think that everything you need to deserve and it will be important to see the rest of the season and if we are happy with the improvement we are doing.

“I think that every situation it’s important to deserve. From my side, it’s important to feel that I deserve a new contract, to sign a new contract with this club. I have to feel this. We will talk with the club and find the best solution.”

Tottenham return to Premier League action on Boxing Day with a very tough away fixture against Brentford, before facing Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.
