Harry Kane confirmed he was leaving Spurs for Manchester City in a British record £160million deal earning him £400,000-a-week while best man at his brother's wedding last weekend, it emerged today.
The England captain, 27, led his team to the Euro 2020 final this month with his four goals in the tournament said to have added £20million to his price tag with one source declaring: 'His value has never been higher.'
A 'delighted' Harry is reported to have confirmed his move to family and friends while best man at the wedding of his older brother Charlie, who is also his agent, and got married last Sunday.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy called his star player on Friday - two days before the wedding - to tell Mr Kane that the move he has pushed for all summer is on, with Man City expected to pay £160million to the North London club and £104million over five years to the striker, according to The Sun.
A source said: 'Harry is delighted. He never wanted to leave on bad terms. His value has never been higher'. The deal would be the third highest in world history - with the record being Neymar's £198million transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Harry will now be planning to move to the north-west with his personal trainer wife Kate, and their three children Ivy, four, Vivienne Jane, two, and Louis, six months, leaving behind their £17million rented mansion.
The family have just returned from a holiday in the Caribbean, with Harry renting a private jet to the Bahamas with his best friends from Spurs, Eric Dier and Ryan Mason. But he won't be joined by teammate Heung-Min Son, who has signed a new four-year contract with Spurs.
He is expected to rent or buy in Cheshire's 'Golden Triangle' includes Wilmslow, Knutsford, Alderley Edge and Prestbury, where Manchester City and Manchester United players live in most of the area's mansions. Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and John Stones would be his neighbours.
The star footballer is very close to his family, and may also be looking for properties for his brother and his new wife Hannah, and also his parents Pat and Kim Kane, with the going rate for a large home around £15,000 to £20,000-a-month to rent or up to £10million to buy.
