PL rival honcho urges sale of Manchester United linked English superstar

Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy told to sell Manchester United target Harry Kane

Joe Lewis, the owner of Tottenham Hotspur, has told chairman Daniel Levy to sell Manchester United target Harry Kane this summer, according to The Telegraph.

The England international’s current contract at the North London side is set to expire next summer. As things stand, if the striker does not put pen to paper on a new contract at Spurs, the hierarchy want to cash on him in the ongoing transfer window.

To that end, Tottenham want around £100 million for Kane in the coming weeks. Bayern Munich are preparing a third bid after being rejected twice already by the North London side.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will opt to make a move as well in the coming weeks. The English skipper is admired by Erik ten Hag. But the Old Trafford side have doubts regarding Spurs’ willingness to sell him.

The 29-year-old has been one of the most consistent goalscorers in the Premier League over the last several years. Since breaking into the Lilywhites’ first team in the 2014/15 season, the striker has not looked back.

However, despite Kane’s individual accolades, he has been unable to win titles at Tottenham. The North London side have now gone 14 years without winning any major silverware.

At United, Ten Hag has managed to turn things around. The Dutch manager brought success back to the Old Trafford side’s doorsteps last season by winning the Carabao Cup. We also made it to the FA Cup final and finished third in the league table.

However, the Red Devils lack quality and depth in the number nine position. Anthony Martial is the only natural striker at the gaffer’s disposal for now. Unfortunately, the French national’s injury issues make him unreliable.

Therefore, we could evidently do with someone like Kane in our ranks going into next season. However, it will be interesting to see whether a change in Tottenham’s position will encourage United to get the English skipper.
