Man United have two major worries about Harry Kane’s deal to Man City, which has been given a free hand.
Manchester United and Manchester City have been linked with a summer transfer for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who is reportedly looking to leave the club.
According to rumours, Manchester United are unlikely to pursue a trade for Harry Kane this summer. Kane has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Manchester City this summer, with the Tottenham striker apparently ready to quit his boyhood club.
Nuno Espirito Santo, who took over as manager of Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month, and director of football Fabio Paratici will have to work hard this summer to keep hold of their star player.
Kane is said to have told the north London club that he wants to play for a team that consistently competes for big prizes.
Kane, who scored 23 Premier League goals last season, is apparently wanted by both Manchester clubs.
Since 2013, he has 166 Premier League goals in 242 games, and he is a striker that any side would want to have leading their line.
United, according to The Athletic, are unlikely to pursue a deal for the Spurs midfielder this summer.
One of the reasons is that United have already spent £73 million on Jadon Sancho, who will sign a contract at Old Trafford later this week.
United, on the other hand, has other priorities right now.
Their top goal is Raphael Varane, with director of football John Murtough negotiating a contract for the Real Madrid player.
They’re also interested in signing Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes, despite the midfielder’s apparent preference for Paris Saint-Germain.
After prior bad experiences with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, United are wary of entering into transfer negotiations with him.
They were interested in recruiting former Spurs teammates Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, but they chose Real Madrid instead.
Both players had to fight hard to get out of the club, and it’s difficult to envision Kane doing the same.
In a last-ditch effort to keep hold of his star, Levy has set a £150 million price tag on Kane, an enormous sum for a player whose resale worth will only fall from here.
According to The Telegraph, Nuno appears to be building his forthcoming transfer business around Kane, with Ings being targeted as the ideal option to accompany him in attack.
