The Euros hero, 27, is set to join Man City on a record £400,000 a week.

“His value has never been higher.”

Thrilled Harry told of his joy at his pending £160million Man City move while best man at his brother’s wedding.

Elder sibling Charlie is the England skipper’s agent and the good news was shared with family and friends at last Sunday’s nuptials.

It will be a four or five-year deal – that is still to be finalised.

Levy rang Harry and Charlie, 32, to tell them of his U-turn on Friday, two days before the older Kane’s wedding.

LEVY CAVED IN

A club source said last night: “Harry and Charlie got the call at the end of last week.

“Daniel Levy is a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros his value has never been higher.

“By waiting until now, he has probably put another £20million or so on his price tag. A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is Harry’s preference.

“It is also preferable from Spurs’ viewpoint.

“Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s an incredible deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.

“Harry is in the pomp of his career, and wants to win trophies.

“This is a brilliant signing for both parties.”

‘BRILLIANT SIGNING’

Harry put in a transfer request earlier this summer.

It followed Spurs’ failure to win a trophy after losing to City in April’s League Cup Final.

He had previously spoken of his desire to win trophies and play regular Champions League football. Meanwhile, the popular striker, who turns 28 next week, celebrated his Euros success by secretly jetting off on holiday with his wife of two years, personal trainer Kate.

The couple, who have three children, then returned for Charlie – who runs a successful London-based agency – and bride Hannah’s Essex wedding.

Harry’s Man City deal follows a reported initial bid of £100million last month.

England’s Man City trio of Kyle Walker — a former teammate at Spurs — Raheem Sterling and John Stones are understood to have given Harry advice on where to live in the North West. City boss Pep Guardiola may be asked to offer some star players as part of the deal.

Harry has age on his side as he seeks another 95 goals to beat Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 260.

He started with Ridgeway Rovers in North East London — where it also began for David Beckham — and was part of Arsenal’s academy before moving to Spurs.

Loan spells followed at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City before Harry became a first-team regular.

It would top the £47million Spurs got when Walker moved to Man City in 2017. Third on the list is cult hero Dimitar Berbatov, who Spurs sold to Manchester United in 2009 for £34.2million.

Harry has been named in the Premier League Team of the Year a record five times and won player of the year twice at Tottenham.
