Manchester United given clear run at Harry Kane as Real Madrid pull out
Manchester United’s hopes of signing Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane have been dealt a huge boost.
According to the Daily Mail, Spanish giants Real Madrid have cooled their interest in the striker, paving the way for the Red Devils to make a move. Kane has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past few weeks. The striker’s refusal to commit to Tottenham did little to dispel the rumours.
With revenue streams currently running dry due to the lockdown, a number of clubs will be forced into making tough decisions. For Spurs, that could be selling Kane.

If the transfer does go through, it will be the first time in three attempts that we have beaten off Real for a Spurs player. Los Blancos trumped us in duels for Gareth Bale and Luka Modric in the past. It looks like this time the tables have turned.

The fact that Real have pulled out fo the chase should work to our benefit. Tottenham are keen to receive at least £200million for the player. A ridiculous fee considering the current circumstances.
Although it can be argued that such tactics are used to chase off potential suitors, Spurs will not have much choice but to sell if their financial situation worsens.
With Real pulling out, we could have well saved ourselves from a bidding war.

Kane is Tottenham’s third-highest all-time goalscorer. A poacher who knows where the back of the net is, he will add a killer’s edge to our attack. Whether he ends up at Old Trafford or not remains to be seen.
