Harry Kane has agreed a new six-year deal with Tottenham that could be worth as much as a staggering £90million. The England captain has had his £100,000-a-week salary doubled but with bonuses his earnings could rise to as much as £15m-a-year, putting him on a par with the best paid players in the Premier League.
Chairman Daniel Levy has responded to the commitment made by manager Mauricio Pochettino, who only last month agreed a new five-year deal, by now securing the services of the club’s best players as they prepare to move into a new state of the art stadium.
Kane only signed his last deal in 2016 and it runs until 2022 but Levy recognises the manner in which Kane has risen to become one of Europe’s most prolific strikers. Last season, he netted 41 goals for the north London club.
Kane and Spurs are planning to move into a 62,000-seater ground on the site of the old White Hart Lane in the first few months of next season.
Manager Pochettino sought assurances that his team would be able to progress and committed to the club with a new contract towards the end of last month.
The Argentinian also turned down the possibility of joining Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane left the Santiago Bernabeu.
Kane was crucial to Spurs as they finished third in the Premier League and reached the FA Cup semi-final.
