Tottenham Hotspur are holding out for £160 million, with Harry Kane hopeful that Man United will match Man City’s transfer bid.
Both Manchester clubs are allegedly interested in signing Harry Kane this summer.
According to sources, Tottenham are hoping for a bidding battle between Manchester United and Manchester City for Harry Kane, and the player himself is waiting to see if the two clubs would go head-to-head for him. Both clubs are unwilling to pay the £160 million price tag that Spurs are expected to accept, although a bidding war might push the price up.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
City are reportedly willing to pay around £100 million for the 27-year-old, indicating a significant disparity in valuations at the moment.
According to the Sun, they are content to wait, and with six weeks left in the transfer window, they are not in a hurry to sign the striker.
This would most likely put an end to any bidding battle that Spurs – and Kane – had hoped for.
Pep Guardiola is said to have drafted a list of replacements for Sergio Aguero if he is unable to buy Kane.
After making 275 appearances for Manchester City and scoring 184 goals, Aguero moved to Barcelona this summer.
Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres are their only true strikers at the moment, with Liam Delap, a teenager, possibly a possibility.
United have yet to make a move for Kane, but the England striker has been linked with a move, as has Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
At the end of last season, Edinson Cavani signed a new contract with the club and is expected to be their first-choice striker next season.
They just signed Jadon Sancho from Dortmund this week, so a £160 million deal for Kane might be too much.
In his first press conference as Tottenham manager, Nuno Espirito Santo stated that he is committed to keeping Kane at the club.
He stated, “Harry is our player, period.” “There’s no need to discuss anything else.
“He has a difficult job to accomplish, and he is obviously committed to the national team, so I opted not to speak to any of them.”
“When they arrive, I’ll speak.” This is the ideal time for us to sit down in our own building, face to face, and plan our future together.”
