Harry Kane could become the Premier League’s highest earner if he seals his move to Manchester City.
Tottenham have reportedly made a U-turn on their hardline stance and are now willing to sell their prized asset after it was claimed Pep Guardiola’s men were set to lodge a staggering £160million bid.
The England captain is open to a move to the Etihad with the report stating that he has agreed personal terms with City which would double his Spurs wage.
Kane would earn £400,000-a-week if the deal goes through which would make him the most paid player in England’s top flight.

The 27-year-old would overtake Kevin De Bruyne who currently occupies top spot on £385,000-a-week at City after penning a contract extension to 2025 back in May.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is next on the list with a £350,000-a-week pay packet, with Manchester United boy Jadon Sancho is on the same salary as the Arsenal skipper since completing his move from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
If Kane makes the move up north, Chelsea’s Champions League final hero Kai Havertz, who is on £310,000-a-week, would make up the top five following his move from Bayer Leverkusen 12 months ago.
Raheem Sterling, who is reportedly one of the players who was offered to Spurs as a makeweight in the Kane deal, comes in at sixth place with a £300,000-a-week wage.
Paul Pogba has a year on his current salary that earns him £290,000-a-week, but has turned down Man Utd’s new contract offer which would have earned him £350,000-a-week as he looks to leave the club this summer.
Timo Werner is on a £250,000-a-week salary since joining Chelsea from RB Leipzig a year ago, while United duo Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial make up the top ten, both earning £250,000-a-week.
