Show him some love, commit to him and make him a loooooong term offer. We don't know exactly what the points of contention are between the two sides, but sometimes it's about showing commitment towards a player. In this case, commitment would come at the expense of a more reasonable cap hit for the club. Letang's not a big guy and he plays a big man's game. Maybe security is something he's looking for. Again, we don't know the ins and outs of the negotiations.
Yeah, it's 35 million but Letang is probably looking at more like 45 million in those 10 years if he plays to his potential. Just for example 4M x 4 and 5M x 6 = 46M.
