Journalist reveals eye-watering figure Man Utd would have to pay to sign Kane

The Sun reporter Charlie Wyett has said that it could take an offer as high as £200m for Manchester United to prise Harry Kane away from Tottenham Hotspur.

Until last month, reports had indicated that Kane was one of Man Utd’s top targets for the centre-forward role and that Spurs would be willing to sell the striker for £100m in the summer should they fail to qualify for the Champions League (Telegraph).

However, Tottenham’s stance seems to have now changed, with Sky Sports revealing on Tuesday that the North London club do not intend on selling the 28-year-old irrespective of where they finish or whether he signs a new contract.

Meanwhile, ESPN reported earlier this week that United are hesitant about pursuing the England captain as they do not want a protracted negotiation with Daniel Levy through the summer and are considering alternative options including Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic.

If Wyett’s recent update is to be believed, Erik Ten Hag’s men have good reason to be hesitant, with the journalist claiming that Levy will demand £150m-£200m for his talisman.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do not think any club would consider paying £150m for a player who will be 30 years of age in the summer and have just one year left on his contract.

If Kane does decide not to sign a new deal at Spurs, I do wonder if the wiser move would be to cash in on him for £100m and use that money to rebuild the squad.
