- Harry Kane's contract with Tottenham Hotspur is set to expire in 2024
- However, he is still attracting interest from a number of clubs including Man City
- City are understood to be desperate to find a formidable replacement for Sergio Aguero
- But they will have to cough a British transfer record fee to land Kane who has 21 goals so far
Tottenham Hotspur have slammed a huge £150million price tag on Harry Kane months to the summer transfer window.
With Kane at the peak of his career, he is bound to attract interest from potential suitors in the next window amid reports Man United and rivals City could enter the market for a traditional No.9.
Daily Mail now reports Spurs chief Daniel Levy would demand for an eyewatering £150m for the star forward in what will be a British transfer fee record.
The fee would see Kane become the third most expensive footballer of all time after Paris Saint-Germain duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe who the French giants paid a fortune to land.
Kane, who is on a £200,000-a-week wages at Spurs has an active contract with club which is expected to expire in 2024.
Despite the north Londoners insisting the 27-year-old is not on sale, their current financial crisis could see them offload the Englishman who represents their most saleable asset.
City are understood to be keen to enter the market in the summer for a natural striker to replace Sergio Aguero who has entered the twilight years of his career.
The Etihad landlords are also thought to be eyeing Inter forward Romelu Lukaku to fill Aguero's void, but would also fancy the prospect of landing Kane.
However, they could face stiff competition from a number of clubs, including rivals United.
Despite the Red Devils boasting of a star-studded attack involving Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, they lack a player who can be depended on for 20+ league goals.
As such, the idea of signing Kane, who has long been rated as a top marksman in Europe would be a welcome idea.
Whereas topping the England international's wages would not be a problem for both United and City, his price tag could be a put off considering the current financial crisis most clubs have to contend with.
Kane has played an integral part in Spurs' campaign in all competitions this season, scoring an impressive 21 goals in the process.
