Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United, according to The Sun.
The Red Devils could have a greater chance of securing Kane’s signature if Spurs fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. As the talismanic striker enters the final year of his contract, his aspirations are likely to influence his next career move.
The North Londoners faces some critical choices in the summer transfer window, with uncertain futures for key individuals. Firstly, there is speculation surrounding the tenure of manager Antonio Conte. Additionally, the team captain Hugo Lloris and other vital players are at risk of being displaced.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is expected to prioritise Harry Kane’s future at the club, as the England international approaches the final year of his contract.
The 29-year-old is in a strong position to determine his next move, and will likely hope that Spurs will not obstruct a potential transfer, as they did with Manchester City last season.
Despite the reported £100 million price tag, Kane’s importance to Tottenham makes him a valuable asset, and his future will be a top concern for the club. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is in need of a top-rated centre-forward, but is reportedly struggling to make a decision on pursuing Kane.
United are currently facing a dilemma in their pursuit of a new striker. On one hand, there is a clear interest in Harry Kane, while on the other hand, Victor Osimhen is also a top option.
If Tottenham fails to qualify for the Champions League, Kane’s asking price could decrease, leading the Red Devils to consider the possibility of acquiring him. However, there are questions about how much Spurs will demand for the star striker.
