Should Manchester City buy Harry Kane this transfer window, their proposed wage offer will leapfrog the striker over Kevin de Bruyne as the highest-paid player at the club.
His reported move to the Eithad will, in fact, make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player, with a weekly wage of £400,000.
The SunSport report Daniel Levy has decided to change his mind about keeping the forward and now will accept offers for Kane. The fee is said to be around £160million.
It’s also thought that Kane has agreed to personal terms with City, whereby he will be the highest earner at City and the Premier League.
Kane has scored 221 goals for Spurs and was named the Premier League top scorer goal and earned the highest number of assists last season.

A source in the same publication has said that Levy has already informed Kane about his U-turn.
They said: “Harry and Charlie [Harry’s brother] got the call at the end of last week. Obviously Harry was delighted because he never wanted to leave Spurs, his beloved boyhood club, on bad terms.
“Daniel Levy is a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros his value has never been higher.
“By waiting until now, he has probably put another £20million or so on his price tag. A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is Harry’s preference.
“It is also preferable from Spurs’ viewpoint. They do not want to lose him to another London side. Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s an incredible deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.
“Harry is in the pomp of his career, and wants to win trophies. This is a brilliant signing for both parties.”
