He is currently re-negotiating his BBC contract.

It’s said Lineker has a £30 million fortune from his days as a leading goal scorer for Spurs, sponsorship deals and television adverts like Walkers Crisps.

Lineker, 58, said: “I love my job at the BBC, and I enjoy doing it.

“I’m currently negotiating a new contract with them and I’m volunteering to take less.”

The BBC has been under fire for axing free television licences for the over 75s while paying its stars high salaries.
