Actually people have been criticising him for it which I think is unfair given we don't know the details about it
The conversation at his home could easily be this
Dad: Marcus you've got that new contract from Spurs what are you thinking?
ME: You know what, I really loves Spurs and want to sign but I'm desperate to make it and I believe if given a chance I will do well but they're a top 6 side and knowing what the PL is like I might never get it. Signing up for 3 years, could be a big risk.
Dad: Good point and I see the predicament you're in, but if you work hard you'll get a chance.
ME: I've seen many top young players get wasted in the PL there is no guarantee. Plus I have been working hard, I have been tracking back a lot more recently in my games.
Dad: Well are you happy with the money you're being offered?
ME: Well, I understand Spurs don't offer too much, and I would like more considering Barcelona wanted me and my mates are getting so much more but that isn't a big issue. I really enjoy being at Spurs, but I just want to play football. I mean the manager has told me he thinks I could be like Messi, its a really hard decision.
"money grabber", "He hasn't done anything yet to be making demands", "he can just f*** off, up his own arse" " we don't need players like this, we know what they'll be like when they're older"
Granted the script isn't quite Corrie but that could be what is going through his head. Why has he become a villain. He is the victim of his own ability and the media
Funnily enough he could be a cock, but he is an 18 year old who throughout his whole teenage life has been the best footballer in his age group in England. He's had the best clubs in the world after him. give the guy a break. There are plenty of people on this forum who I'm sure are arrogant cocks who have a lot less on their CV. Its part of growing up.
Also if he was a money grabber, don't you think he would have just gone to one of the rich clubs before h signed this contract. He obviously took the initial cheaper offer for a reason.
The speculation is too much. And if he ended up signing and staying, I get the feeling he'd already be public enemy no.1 in the club and will be starting on the back foot with fans.
I also don't get this demands thing. The mere fact that we keep offering or are negotiating with him suggests he isn't making massive demands. He maybe wants some assurances, which we likely will not do, and that is where the trust in us has to come in. Should he blindly trust that he will get a chance if he works his arse off, PL suggests its hard either way.
