Man Utd don’t want to play games with Tottenham’s Daniel Levy over Kane

Harry Kane

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane this summer. 

Signing a top quality striker is said to be one of the top priorities of manager Erik ten Hag. And the Dutch boss is reportedly a huge admirer of the 29-year-old.  

But United don’t want to become embroiled in a transfer saga with the Lilywhites over Kane. 

According to MEN, the Red Devils don’t want to play games with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy who has a reputation of being football’s toughest negotiator. 

The 29-year-old’s current contract in North London will run out in June 2024. 

But he is unlikely to sign a new deal with Tottenham who have been enduring a very difficult 2022-23 season so far. 

The Lilywhites’ chances of qualifying for Champions League football next term are negligible after the 6-1 thrashing at Newcastle United left them six points behind the top-four. 

Despite being one of the best players in the English league, Kane has never won a major trophy at his club, and he is unlikely to win one in the near future. 

Therefore, the England international is expected to leave Spurs in the summer transfer window. 

This is a boost for United, but Manchester City failed to get a deal for Kane even when they were ready to pay £127m in the summer of 2021. 

If negotiations for the 29-year-old become too difficult, Erik ten Hag’s side could turn their attention to Victor Osimhen. 

But the Nigeria international is under contract at Napoli until 2025, meaning a transfer fee for him will likely be even greater. 

The Red Devils have also been linked with Randal Kolo Muani, Rasmus Hojlund, Goncalo Ramos and Mohammed Kudus, players who are regarded as cheaper alternatives to Kane or Osimhen.
