Sky Sport Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg has claimed that Harry Kane would be ‘too expensive’ for Manchester United.

Multiple outlets have reported over the last few weeks that Kane is Erik Ten Hag’s top target for the centre-forward role in the summer (MEN).

However, ESPN suggested on Monday that although United consider the 29-year-old to be the ‘perfect fit’, they are having second thoughts about pursuing the striker as they are hesitant to enter into negotiations with Daniel Levy.

The report further added that the Red Devils are aware that negotiations for Kane could drag into the final days of the summer transfer window, which they wish to avoid, which is why they could prioritise alternatives such as Victor Osimhen and Dusan Vlahovic instead.

Plettenberg has now taken to social media to reveal that Manchester United are not seriously considering making a move for the Tottenham man as they would not be able to meet the North London club’s asking price for the player.

I can see why Man Utd might not be keen to pay big money for a player who would be into the final year of his contract.

Tottenham will be taking a big gamble by hanging on to the striker if he does not sign a new contract before the start of next season as they run the risk of losing out on a big fee.
