There is just one domestic game remaining for Manchester United this season following the conclusion of the Premier League and it’s a big one as they face rivals Man City in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium this weekend.
Once that match has passed the Red Devils will be able to turn their full focus to the transfer window and it looks like a lot of their focus will be on trying to lure Harry Kane to Old Trafford. The future of the Spurs and England captain looks set to once again be one of the biggest ongoing stories of the summer but the latest news seems to have quashed the gossip before it has had the chance to really get off the ground.
According to The Mirror, the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is determined not to sell Kane this summer which would mean running the risk of losing their talisman on a free at the end of the 2023/24 season as he only has 12 months remaining on his current contract. It is claimed that cashing in now could leave the North London club in ‘greater turmoil’ than if they were to lose the 29-year old in one year’s time.
The same report claims that United boss Erik ten Hag has made Kane a top striker target. The Red Devils are currently considered the favourites to land him while the most likely outcome after that is him remaining at Spurs by the close of the transfer window.
The other clubs thought to be potential suitors include the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich while Manchester City and Newcastle United are thought to be the only other English clubs that could realistically afford him if they cose to make a bid. PSG and Barcelona are also plausible destinations but there is no reason to suspect there is any concrete interest at this time.
