Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to fend off any kind of interest in Harry Kane from Manchester United by handing out the prolific striker a bumper new contract, the Express reveals.
Kane only broke into the Spurs starting line-up 18 months ago but midway through the last campaign, he signed a contract extension which apparently tied him down to White Hart Lane until 2020 and pushed his wages up to £35k-per-week.
However, because of his continued exploits in front of goal, and in the process becoming a contributing factor in Mauricio Pochettino’s men’s unlikely title aspirations, the 22-year-old striker is all set to be rewarded with a new contract that will rocket his salary up to a mammoth £100k-per-week.
The Englishman has been in an outstanding form this season and him at the moment leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 21 strikes. His impressive form has reportedly led to Manchester United and Real Madrid weighing up the possibility of a summer bid.
Kane’s new rumoured deal would also see him earn more than big-money buys Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela as he would then become Tottenham’s highest-paid player.
The proposed contract would actually more than double the highly-rated forward’s current earnings and would also include added incentives based on Champions League qualification, international caps and a number of goals scored.
If Harry Kane does commit his long-term future to his boyhood club then Tottenham will receive a huge boost as they are ready for future assaults on the Premier League and the Champions League next season.
Kane is also expected to lead the line for England at this summer’s Euro and the Three Lions will be hoping he can replicate his club form.
The Chingford-born striker bolsters with all the attributes of a traditional, old-fashioned centre-forward whose eye for goal is undoubtedly the most potent weapon to his ever-improving display. He now averages exactly one goal in each game for the Spurs.
Kane has scored 19 of his 21 Premier League strikes this season from inside the box, although his credibility to score more eye-catching goals cannot be dismissed – as his stunning effort in the north London derby showed.
Having netted three times as many Premier League goals as any of his Tottenham teammates, it is hardly surprising to see Kane dominating offensive categories in the division so far this season.
