Tottenham to offer Harry Kane massive £100k a week pay-rise after denying wantaway striker Man City transfer


TOTTENHAM are ready to offer Harry Kane a £100,000-a-week pay rise in a bid to keep him out of Manchester City’s clutches.

The England captain yesterday revealed he will NOT be leaving Spurs this summer after failing to engineer a move to the Etihad.

Now Cristiano Ronaldo’s camp are stepping up their efforts to get the Portuguese superstar a switch to City this week.

Kane, 28, said: “I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100 per cent focused on helping the team achieve success.”

Spurs fear Kane — who has three years left on his £230,000-a-week contract — could try to force through a switch in January or at the end of the season.

So they are preparing to offer him £330,000-a -week to try to keep him at the club until 2027, just before he turns 34.

But club chiefs know even that may not prevent him from leaving in his quest for honours.

Kane was hoping to leave in this window but after months of speculation linking him with City, made his first Spurs appearance as a sub in their 1-0 win at Wolves on Sunday.


He added: “It was incredible to see the reception from Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks.”

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: “It’s great news, fantastic for everybody. We are all very happy. He’s one of the best players in the world. We are all delighted to have more options.

“It says we are able to keep one of the best players in the world — this is important.

“All the players have to show this belief that together we can make good things.”

Kane is set to start for Spurs tonight in the second leg of their Europa Conference League play-off at home to Pacos de Ferreira.

And Nuno is unfazed by the prospect of the transfer saga returning.

He said: “I am not worried at all. It’s day by day, he’s an option for tomorrow. It’s the only thing, my only thought.

“Since Harry rejoined us in training he has been working and his attitude has been great. This is what we value.

“It’s an amazing club, we have a good team, we are in a process and we need everybody involved.”

As City saw their hopes dashed, former Manchester United idol Ronaldo, 36, continued trying to engineer a move out of Italians Juventus.

City have been cool on signing him since reports surfaced earlier this month and that remains the case.

But boss Pep Guardiola is now facing up to a season without replacing Sergio Aguero.

So it will be up to Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes to put forward a proposal which would tempt Etihad chiefs.

City made no secret of their wish to land Kane and were convinced he wanted to come.

But there was no way they were going to pay £150million for him.

With Spurs chairman Daniel Levy unwilling to negotiate, it was clear they could not hit a figure that suited both clubs.
