There has often been talk of an eye-wateringly expensive move for Harry Kane — Real Madrid and Manchester United are among those mentioned in reports — but could that possibility be drawing closer?
It could, according to the Sun, which reports that the England striker and Tottenham Hotspur “have agreed to put all talks over a new contract on hold.”
The report claims Spurs and Kane are “at loggerheads” because the club are “refusing to offer a deal in line with his England strike partners or even make him one of the highest earners at White Hart Lane.”
There is no scheduled date for negotiations to resume, it adds, saying the situation “will be another massive worry for Spurs supporters following the failure of Hugo Lloris to agree fresh terms.”
The contract standoff has alerted Premier League rivals including Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, despite the fact that Kane’s current £60,000-per-week deal runs until 2020.
