‘Cannot leave for free’ – Manchester United handed a lifeline in Harry Kane’s transfer race

Manchester United have been encouraged in their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane this summer.

According to The Telegraph, Spurs owner Joe Lewis has informed chairman Daniel Levy to either sell Kane or renew his contract which expires next summer.

The England international is not expected to sign a new deal with the London outfit and wants to move elsewhere.

Kane was linked with Manchester United, but they turned their attention to other centre-forwards to avoid a summer-long transfer saga with Levy.

Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund has been tipped to move to Old Trafford, with United expected to make an official bid this week.

Signing Harry Kane could send Man Utd to Dreamland

The Red Devils have already spent £107m to sign Mason Mount and Andre Onana this summer.

They will need another £100m to bring Kane to the Theatre of Dreams.

It wouldn’t be easy for United as they are working with a limited transfer budget and must operate within the Financial Fair Play rules.

If Levy is ready to sell Kane, Ten Hag could ask United to turn their attention back to the Englishman.

The 30-year-old is one of the best strikers in the Premier League era. He could transform United into title challengers.

Levy can still make matters difficult for the Red Devils. He would prefer to offload his best player to a foreign club rather than a direct rival.

Bayern Munich have earmarked Kane as their top target and are preparing a third offer for the forward. 

The Bundesliga giants are yet to replace Robert Lewandowski, who left for Barcelona last summer.

A move to the Bavarians would give Kane the chance to win silverware. However, it would hamper his ambition to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League goals record.
