Man United are not willing to spend nearly £120m to sign Harry Kane this summer, while Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is unwilling to sell the striker to another PL club, according to reports. The 27-year-old centre-forward is understood to be considering his future at Tottenham as he is keen to improve his chances of winning a major trophy before the end of his career.
Red Devils, meanwhile, are in the market for a new centre-forward this summer and their desire to sign a new striker could be raised if Edinson Cavani decides to leave Man United. Spurs, however, are in a strong negotiating position as Harry will still have three years remaining on his deal this summer.
The Red Devils have prioritised a move for Erling Haaland but will turn their attention to Kane if a deal for the Borussia Dortmund centre-forward is too costly. However, the report claims that the Red Devils are unwilling to meet the £120m valuation which has been placed on England international ahead of the summer window.
And to add a further blow to the Red Devils hopes, Tottenham chairman Levy is said to be intent on refusing to sell the English striker to any other English side ‘under any circumstances’.
Following the Red Devils 3-1 victory over Spurs on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that Cavani is still deliberating over his future at the Theatre of Dreams and conceded that the 34-year-old is contemplating a return to South America.
‘Fantastic performance, we are awaiting his decision if he wants to stay or wants to move on,’ said the Norwegian manager. ‘A performance like today, we as a club have missed for a few years, we have not had that number nine for a long, long spell.’
