Manchester United will have to spend £300 million overall to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur
In order to get a hold of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United will have to spend around £300 million, according to the Daily Star (h/t Express).
The Red Devils are eyeing to get a hold of the 29-year-old’s signature in the upcoming transfer window. But the Old Trafford side will have to pay a massive amount to acquire his services.
United have ‘done their homework’ regarding the finances that will be required to lure the England international to Manchester. For starters, the Red Devils will have to pay Spurs around £120 million. The player could also demand a signing-on fee.
Regarding Kane’s wages, the Old Trafford side know that they will have to pay him nearly £400,000 a week. Plus, the potential five-year contract could also include huge bonuses.
Therefore, United will have to take a massive undertaking to bring the England international to Manchester. At the moment, the Red Devils are not interested in spending so much on him.
The 29-year-old made his way through the youth ranks at Tottenham. He has developed into one of the best players in the Premier League over the years.
Kane has led Spurs’ line since the 2014/15 campaign. The England international has been the North London side’s talisman season after season. This term, he has been the only forward Antonio Conte has been able to rely on.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, the Old Trafford side brought Wout Weghorst on loan this month to fill the void. Anthony Martial is the other striker at Erik ten Hag’s disposal. However, he has been injury prone in the current campaign.
