Harry Kane’s new contract has been in the pipeline for a fair while, but it seems like that £100,000-a-week offer might be just around the corner.
It was in March that the papers first reported that Tottenham were prepared to offer Kane a six-figure weekly salary to ward of interest from Manchester United, but the issue was put to one side with the club fighting for the Premier League title.
With the season now winding down, the Daily Mail claim on Friday that the contract offer will now be forthcoming. There is no indication that Kane will be anything other than delighted to sign on the dotted line.
This new deal would mark another step along an incredible road for Kane. Two years ago he had scored just three career top-flight goals. Since then he’s been the top English scorer in the Premier League, scored 46 times in 70 Premier League appearances, scored 60 club goals in total, made his England debut, scored four times for England and looks set to start up front at Euro 2016. Not bad, Harry.
Kane only signed a new five-year deal last February, worth £50,000 a week. Yet with his improvement this season and reports of elite clubs sniffing around their striker, Tottenham will move quickly to extend that deal. It will also break the club’s typical wage ceiling of £80,000 a week.
