Manchester Metropolis and Manchester United set to supply Harry Kane £80million in wages to tempt him from Tottenham Hotspur
Manchester City and Manchester United stand ready to offer Harry Kane £ 80m in wages to tempt him from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, according to The Sun.
The 27-year-old wants to leave Spurs at the end of the season as Champions League football is again unavailable next season. Both Pep Guardiola and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are ready to face Manchester.
City and United are both ready to hand Kane a five year contract with a base salary of £ 300,000 a week
Tottenham put the England international at £ 150m but they could be forced to do business for around £ 30m less if Kane insists on leaving.
Man City and Man Utd would have paid the star striker around £ 78m in wages at the end of five years if he had joined either, and there would be other bonuses and clauses for goals scored, milestones reached and trophies won.
Such a deal would make Kane one of England’s highest paid top players, and both Mancunian teams are ready to go the extra length to land one of the world’s top scorers, to dominate domestically and on the continent.
The Spurs star has scored 165 goals in the Premier League and 220 goals in all of his club’s competitions but has missed the cutlery.
There is no guarantee that Tottenham will appear to be getting any better.
They hope to secure qualification for the Europa League by winning their last two games of the campaign and Kane is not interested in continuing on Thursday night.
Man Utd and City have sealed qualification for next season’s Champions League and are both in the finals of the two continental showpieces.
Guardiola’s side face Chelsea – one of Kane’s many admirers – in the Champions League final, while the Red Devils hope to help Villarreal win the Europa League prize.
