Tottenham are willing to risk losing Harry Kane for free next summer rather than strengthen Manchester United by selling to them. Sources say Spurs will do everything to keep their talisman despite Kane entering the final months of his contract.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been working behind the scenes to test the north London club’s resolve but Daniel Levy is going to hold on to his star striker and hopes that an appointment of a brilliant manager that can take the club places will convince Kane to sign a new deal.
Real Madrid are also interested as well as German giants Bayern Munich and Tottenham prefer in the worst-case scenario to sell Kane abroad like Gareth Bale and Luka Modric rather than following the footsteps of someone like Teddy Sheringham or recently Kyle Walker.
Kane, despite Tottenham enduring another difficult campaign, bagged 30 league goals, only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland got more with teammate Emerson Royal describing him as the best striker in the world at the moment.
The move to Spain or Germany would have been best for Kane to keep his legendary status at the club and could return to see out his career if he ever wanted to but he’s eyeing Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring benchmark of 266 goals and his outstanding campaign this season leaves him just 47 short.
Despite never mentioning it, Kane wants that record and is determined to equal, surpass it and stretch it to the point it makes it incredibly hard for someone to easily lay claim to it.
Tottenham are neck deep in search of a new manager with Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou reported to be leading the race.
