The striker was reportedly looking to get more than £100,000 per week like his England teammates Jamie Vardy who earns around £120,000 and Daniel Sturridge who takes home about £140,000 every week at Liverpool.

Kane, however, could only get £90,000 per week with performance related bonuses taking it over £100,000 per week.

His current contract has three more years to run before the new one starts.
