Manchester United’s interest in Harry Kane is no secret, but the club has understood for some time that it would be a difficult task to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s record goalscorer this summer.
Erik ten Hag needs an elite-level No 9 next season and Kane is one of the best options out there, with one year left on his current deal. The problem stems from Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sell Kane to another Premier League club.
Jonathan Northcroft and Gary Jacob from The Times claim United are not optimistic about their chances of signing Kane due to been given no encouragement from Levy that he would countenance selling the goalscorer.
