Manchester United ‘believe’ Harry Kane transfer from Tottenham Hotspur possible
The Red Devils ‘believe’ they will be able to sign the England international next summer if Spurs are unable to make it into the top four. Also, the Old Trafford side think that the North London side will lower the £100 million asking price in case they miss out on a Champions League spot.
United have already been in touch with the 29-year-old’s entourage through a third party. The Red Devils have received a positive response from the striker’s camp.
Kane’s current contract with Tottenham expires in the summer of 2024. Spurs are expected to hold talks with their all-time leading goalscorer in order to keep him.
In 2021, Manchester City were interested in acquiring the 29-year-old’s services. However, they failed back then and are no longer in the running for the England international. Pep Guardiola’s team now have Erlin Haaland at their disposal.
Antonio Conte’s team have had a mixed campaign. They are currently fourth in the Premier League table. However, Liverpool and Newcastle United have games in hand over Spurs and could overtake them.
While the North London side are still in the race for the top four, they have once again failed in the domestic cup competitions, extending their trophy drought. It remains to be seen how far the Lilywhites can go in the UCL this season.
Man United evidently need a quality number nine. Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst have not had much of an impact in front of goals in the current campaign. Marcus Rashford has been the one Erik ten Hag has had to rely mostly on.
