Tottenham are prepared to offer Harry Kane a jaw-dropping salary that would eclipse Erling Haaland's wage at Manchester City in a desperate attempt to convince him to stay, according to reports. Kane has just entered the final year of his existing contract at Spurs and has been tipped to seek a move elsewhere over the coming weeks, with Thomas Tuchel thought to be keen on bringing him to Bayern Munich.

The German champions are said to have already seen two bids turned down by Tottenham, who are not willing to sell Kane despite the possibility that he could leave for free next summer if they decide against cashing in. The north Londoners will instead push on with their bid to extend Kane's contract by offering him a significantly increased wage as part of a new deal, according to The Telegraph.It is said that Tottenham would be prepared to pay the England skipper as much as £400,000 per week if he decides to commit his long-term future to the club by signing a new contract. This would see him earn the same amount as Kevin De Bruyne and more than Haaland, who receives a basic wage of around £375,000 per week at the Etihad Stadium.However, Kane is reportedly yet to give any indication that he is willing to agree extended terms at Tottenham, while there is an understanding that his decision will not be motivated by money. He is desperate to win at least one major trophy before the end of his career and could be inclined to push for a move to Bayern, who are in a better position to compete for silverware than Spurs as things stand.

The forward has also been promised by Thomas Tuchel that he could win the Champions League if he joins the Bundesliga giants this summer, which would likely represent a bigger pull than having his salary increased at Tottenham. It will be up to Ange Postecoglou to convince Kane that his future lies in north London, with the new Spurs boss set to hold face-to-face talks with his attacking talisman in the near future.He insisted on Monday that he is not concerning himself with Bayern's interest in Kane before discussing things with the striker, saying: "If I say it’s annoying me, it would be misleading. It doesn’t register. I always believe that you’re much better trying to understand what a situation is through your own eyes.

"For me it’s in my head right now Harry’s on holiday, he’s on a sunbed and playing with his family and having a great time. If other things are going on I’m not going to think about it and the reason I don’t is because he’ll be here in two days’ time and everything I need to know will be sitting right in front of me."So, in the meantime, I’m not going to lose time or sleep on conjecture that may or may not be out there because then you’re jumping at shadows. How much of it is true? Nothing’s landed on my desk at this moment from anybody at the club to say there’s a decision to be made there, not even close to that."
