MANCHESTER UNITED fans have been left stunned after learning of Harry Kane’s wage demands.
SunSport last night revealed that the Red Devils would have to pay the Tottenham captain £30million a year to entice him to Old Trafford.

This would make Kane the highest-paid player in the Premier League, earning an eye-watering £577,000 per week.
Marcus Rashford, who recently signed a new contract worth £325k per week, is currently Man United’s highest paid player.
David de Gea, the previous top earning for the Red Devils, made £375k per week, while Cristiano Ronaldo was rumored to make north of £500k.
Man United supporters didn’t agree that paying a player that much again is a smart idea in response to Kane’s demands.
Referencing Ronaldo, one tweeted: “560K pounds a week ya that worked real well last time we gave someone that much a week lmao.”
While a second wrote: “That’s what we were paying Ronaldo, arguably one of the biggest footballing brands in the world… Kane is world class and I want him desperately but he’s not Ronaldo.”

A third commented: “He should not earn more than rashford.”
And another added: “Not worth blowing up the team pay structure and possibly creating team division.”
Ronaldo, 38, scored 24 goals during his first season back at Man United
He lost his place last term under Erik ten Hag, however, scoring once in 10 Prem appearances before being axed after the World Cup.
Kane, on the other hand, has one year left on his Tottenham deal.
The North Londoners have extended a new £400,000 per week contract to the England captain, but he has not accepted it.
The striker, who turns 30 on Friday, is a target for Bayern Munich.
Al-Hilal of the Saudi Pro League, according to other speculations, is putting together an offer.
Kane is now on tour with his Tottenham teammates.
Spurs and Leicester’s scheduled friendly game in Bangkok yesterday was postponed because of a wet field.
They have a game against Singapore’s Lion City Sailors slated for their National Stadium on Wednesday.
