Tottenham’s price tag for Harry Kane as Man City and Man Utd eye new striker

Tottenham have slapped an eye-watering £150million price tag on Harry Kane.

Kane, despite suffering an injury setback this season, has delivered another fine goalscoring tally for Jose Mourinho's side.

The England star has netted 21 goals this term and, in the process, has boosted his reputation as one of the finest strikers in the Premier League.

But the north Londoners will no doubt face a battle to hold on to their prized asset this summer, with Manchester United and Manchester City believed to be in the market for a traditional No.9.

Kane certainly fits the bill but, in an attempt to warn off potential suitors, Spurs will reportedly demand £150m for their £27-year-old superstar.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham chief Daniel Levy would want an enormous offer before he even considers a deal.

Only two players – Paris Saint-Germain pair – Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, have commanded a fee more than £150m, meaning Kane would become the world's third most expensive player.

But it remains to be see if Kane, whose £200,000-a-week contract doesn't expire until 2024, will be given the green light to leave Spurs.

City are searching for a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, with the 33-year-old enduring an injury-hit campaign under Pep Guardiola.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, is in the hunt for a consistent goalscorer to provide much-needed competition for Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

Last week, Mourinho said he is relaxed about the prospect of having to deliver trophies to keep star man Kane happy.

He said: "To win a trophy, he just needs to win one game. I know that it is a big, difficult game.

    "But to win a trophy, we just need to win a match. You have to ask Harry, but I think 'to wait' is not the right way to describe it. Is to fight for it, is to fight for it.

    "But it's something very personal that I think he is the right guy to have a conversation with you about it."
