Manchester United remain hopeful of signing Harry Kane in the summer, especially if Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League.
According to The Sun, Manchester United will have a better chance of signing Harry Kane if Tottenham fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The Spurs talisman will enter the final year of his deal in the summer, with his ambition likely to decide his next move.
Tottenham have few key decisions to make in the summer, with the futures of key personnel on the brink. For starters, there are doubts about whether manager Antonio Conte will remain in the dugout. At the same time, captain Hugo Lloris and several other key stars are also in danger of losing their places.
Harry Kane’s future will be at the forefront of Daniel Levy’s table. The Tottenham ace will enter the final year of his contract at the club, which puts him in a commanding position regarding his future. The striker will surely hope Spurs do not repeat their tactics from last season when they blocked a prospective move to Manchester City.
There are still the question about Levy’s potential demands if he sells the English international. The Tottenhamsupremo reportedly would sanction a move to a club abroad. Still, Kane is reportedly adamant about continuing in the Premier League and eyes Alan Shearer’s all-time scoring record.
With reports stating Tottenham could demand £100 million for Kane, the price point may seem a bit high for a player in his last year. That is how important the England captain is for the North Londoners. Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag at Manchester United needs a top-rated centre-forward but remains torn between making a choice.
On the one hand, there is the apparent interest in Kane. But Manchester United also hold a big interest in Victor Osimhen. For ten Hag, one choice provides instant success in the present, with the Napoli star a top option for the long-term future.
As for Kane, the report suggests Tottenham’s failure to qualify for the Champions League could lead to a drop in his asking price. Manchester United will certainly remain open to the prospect, but there are questions about how much Spurs will ask.
Kane is ambitious to win trophies and add more to his otherwise illustrious career. He has achieved the title of being Tottenham’s record goalscorer, but the chances of him winning titles here are meagre. At Old Trafford, he could certainly achieve more than in north London.
Manchester United must make a key decision in their search for a new striker. Ten Hag will pit his wits on whether to sign an established Premier League star like Kane or to bring on someone like Osimhen, who has age and further room for improvement.
