Put this wages demand into context... A newly qualified doctor starts work at a NHS hospital,,, one year later he demands the same salary as a senior registrar / consultant. Will not happen until he had proven that he can do the same job as good as , or better than those senior to him, in his own hospital, and in neighbouring areas. Harry has done this Nabil has not.
A young employee enters a department full of people able to do the same job. One year later, the young guy is the boss's favourite, he is far more important than colleagues, some of which are about to be fired, he knows that hiring new guys in his position is a risky and expensive process, and now salary negotiations are coming up...

Some times an article is actually correct. Not every single article ever written about Spurs is wrong. I'm not surprised if he wants the same salary as Kane.
Absolutely...not saying its incorrect...stories based on stories...the main point gets diluted or embellished to be more read-worthy...Chinese whispers like...no doubt the Daily Star will run a story based on the Express, saying "Bentalab considers Spurs future as negotiation talks break down"...silly season is about to start and I'm all strapped in and ready for the ride!

The young employee's boss is under the control of the chairman of the company, and purse strings holder. So what the top man says the manager has to follow...

I think you're confusing football with the real world. There is no common ground.

That's the corner the club painted themselves into when they signed Adebayor. Said at the time that his wages would cause unrest at some point. On Bentaleb, I wouldn't want to offer a 5 year bumper contract based on one and a bit seasons play. Everybody says he has potential, so in my book he has potential to earn big money when and if his potential is realised and the weaknesses in his game have been eliminated.
We can't wait around for that though, because by the time his potential is starting to get realised his contract will run down and that's when the bigger clubs will come circling ala Raheem Sterling.

I just think with a player like him yuo need to tie him down to a long contract now and put him on a decent wage, £40k a week is fair if he is indeed asking for it.

I think he should be offered a contract which builds steadily over 5 years or whatever based on the return we get from him. Tying him down to a big contract now wouldn't work any better than it did with Modric or Bale if he's anywhere near as good as so many people think he is. Personally, I'm a bit more sceptical.

I am not confusing the real world with football.. although you make an interesting comparison... The way football is run, (Clubs, agents FIFA etc..) and amounts of money spent, has indeed no comparison to the real world..

I was just making an explanation as to Everlasting Seconds post based upon my previous entry.

He definitely should be on that big money, he's been putting in good performances while being played out of position.

One of the first names on the team sheet and the best young midfielder in the prem. Played in a World Cup and African CON, do you want him to juggle plates when running with the ball?
Ask any of your mates who are the 5 best young midfeilders in the prem and see who names Benteleb. Extend it to 10 if you wish.

Most of my mates are Arsenal, but saying that they all would like him at the emirates, Kane too. They also rate Mason highly after his performance in the most recent win. I watched it together with them all on TV and they were like "who the fuck is this mason dude..he's taking the piss" so there you go.. My Man U supporting mate also wants Bentaleb.

Tell you what why don't you name some of the midfielders in the prem of the same age that are better?

Just to put things in a bit of perspective I knew a player playing at a London club when he and I were both 19. One of the smaller London clubs to be accurate. He was on a 900 a week without being anywhere near the first team. When he broke through and renewed. His contract he was on then was 9k a week at 21 in 1994.. Before all the sky money..

Edit *1996 not 94

As much as I think you have a point, he is right. Outside of spurs fans nobody rates him. I'm happy with him steadily progressing under the radar though.
I think a lot of clubs rate him( World Cup starter and mainstay for us) and at only 20 yrs old...this is why we should pay him
