Tottenham 'open talks with Harry Kane over new contract' as Mourinho looks to end Man City and PSG transfer interest

TOTTENHAM have opened talks with Harry Kane over a new lucrative contract, according to reports.

The club are keen to tie the England striker down following increasing transfer interest from both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

Kane, 27, still has over three years left on his current £200,000-a-week pay packet in North London.

But the Independent write how chairman Daniel Levy is keen to increase his wages because he knows transfer speculation in his star man is braced to soar.

It was reported last week how Man City are targetting Kane as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero.

Boss Pep Guardiola is ready to part with £90million to sign Kane as Aguero approaches the final six months of his contract.

The Argentinean legend, who is the club's record scorer with 256 goals, has seen his season marred by injuries.

New Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino is also looking at a reunion with his former striker.

The futures of star men Kylian Mbappe and Neymar remain uncertain and PSG could blow Spurs' wage packet out the window if either of the duo leave.

Kane has cemented his reputation as one of the world's best with 205 goals in all competitions for them since the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

He has yet to win a major trophy despite his goalscoring exploits and revealed he may have to leave one day to pursue his goals.

When asked about his future last season, he said: "I get asked this question a lot, it’s one of them things… I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no.

"If I don’t feel like we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there just for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player. I want to become a top top player, so it all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team."
