According to reports, Manchester United is prepared to offer Harry Kane a whopping £300,000-a-week contract, making him one of the club’s highest-paid players.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, has started to look into a move for the England captain as he is considering adding a new striker in the summer.
According to The Sun, the club has also proposed increasing Marcus Rashford’s wages to the same amount in an effort to sign the star winger to a new, long-term contract.
Rashford will enter the final year of his existing contract at the end of the season and United are desperate to keep him at the club.
The additional funds will reportedly be gathered by David de Gea’s new contract which will see him drop his weekly wage and lose his status as the squad’s biggest earner.
De Gea’s proposed new deal will supposedly see his salary slashed from its current £375,000-a-week sum to a new offer of £200,000-a-week.
According to the source, this will increase Rashford’s pay as the team looks to reward him for his greatest year yet and free up more money for Kane should he opt to transfer to United.
In three tournaments with Spurs, Kane has scored 26 goals, although 24 of those have come in the Premier League, compared to Rashford’s 15.
According to reports, Kane’s current Spurs contract will be enhanced by £100,000 at the 13-time English Premier League champions, while Rashford’s contract would similarly be increased from £200,000 to more than quarter of a million.
