• Harry Kane could earn around $566,000-a-week at Old Trafford
  • He could also receive a hefty signing-on-fee from Man Utd
  • Man City are seeing Kane as Sergio Aguero's replacement

Manchester United are reportedly planning to double Harry Kane's wage in a bid to defeat rivals City in the race to sign the Tottenham striker this summer.

Kane, who is expected to leave Tottenham this summer after being associated with the North London club for 17 years, could receive a lucrative salary of around $566,000-a-week at Old Trafford, reported soccer website Teamtalk.

Manchester United could also offer Kane a signing-on-fee of around $25 million, apart from the humongous salary, according to Ian McGarry of The Transfer Window Podcast.

However, signing Kane won’t be an easy task for the Red Devils as the Golden Boot winner won’t come cheap. While it was earlier reported that Kane could cost around $212 million, the Teamtalk report has stated that Tottenham owner Daniel Levy could label Kane with an asking price of around $340 million, a figure that is well above the previous record transfers of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

It was recently reported that Manchester United are willing to offer Spurs two of their first-team players, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial, as a part of a swap deal to bring Kane to Old Trafford.

While Spurs finished seventh in the 2020-21 Premier League table, Kane ended the season as the top scorer and won the Golden Boot ahead of Liverpool FC’s Mohamed Salah and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes.

Kane netted 23 goals and provided 14 assists in the Premier League this season.

Moreover, Kane, who has been associated with Spurs since 2009, is believed to have told the club that he wants to leave this summer. Across 10 seasons at Spurs, Kane has netted 221 goals in 336 competitive matches but is yet to win a trophy and that has pushed him to the edge of parting ways with his boyhood club.

Manchester City, on the other hand, are seeing Kane as a long-term replacement of Sergio Aguero, who is joining FC Barcelona on a free transfer this summer.
