Manchester United finally make firm Harry Kane transfer decision impacting Tottenham

Tottenham face a fight keeping striker and star man Harry Kane this summer with Manchester United knocking on the door.

Manchester United have made up their mind to pursue Harry Kane this summer according to a report in the Guardian and will try to get the deal done as soon as the transfer window opens.

Manchester United are in the market for a lethal finisher but look like they have been priced out of Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and will throw the kitchen sink at Harry Kane who will enter the last 12 months of his contract in north London.

Despite all the chaos at Tottenham, the England striker has bagged 28 league goals, only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has scored more and Spurs would be miles off it but for the overall contribution of their 29-year-old forward.

Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen on bringing in Kane as he sees him as the man to transform his team into genuine title contenders next season.

Spurs have endured another torrid campaign and go into the final game of the season against Leeds with a chance of only qualifying for the Europa Conference after Brighton nailed down Europe League football with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with champions Manchester City on Wednesday night.

Chairman Daniel Levy has a huge call to make with regard to the Kane situation especially now that he could walk away for free next summer, is it worth cashing in on the club’s all-time top scorer now or taking the risk of possibly losing him for free next summer.

The club is without a substantive head coach since Antonio Conte left in March and first choice Arne Slot has just said he intends on staying at Feyenoord despite the interest from the Lilywhites.

Arne Slot told AD Sport: “I have been hearing a lot of rumours going around about the interest of other clubs in me.

“I am grateful for the appreciation, but my wish is to stay with Feyenoord and continue to build on the foundation that has been laid there over the past two seasons.

“There are no transfer talks going on and there have not been any and yesterday’s discussion was only about a possible extension.

“All conversations with Feyenoord are only focused on that. I look forward to the new season at Feyenoord.”

They also have the small matter of appointing a new director of football after Fabio Paratici’s ban on Italian football was extended globally.
