Manchester United have decided to end their pursuit of England striker Harry Kane.

According to The Athletic and The Guardian, Erik ten Hag’s side decided against a formal approach for the Tottenham star despite being top of their list this summer.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy does not want the striker to leave for a Premier League rival, so “exploratory talks will not be continued.”

United feel it would take an “unrealistic” amount of money to test Levy’s resolve and subsequently walk away with their hands tied.

Kane’s current contract ends next June, and the 29-year-old could therefore depart as a free agent in 2024.

Real Madrid are among the other clubs monitoring the England striker’s situation following the departure of Karim Benzema. After scoring 30 Premier League goals last season, Kane would naturally fill the void.

However, with the update on Kylian Mbappé’s potential arrival in Spain, Madrid could focus on targeting the Frenchman instead.

The update leaves United now focused on Atalanta forward Rasmus Højlund or Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.

For Kane, his future remains up in the air, and he could be sticking around in London for another season.
