The future of Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been the subject of plenty of speculation over the past week with reports suggesting that the forward is open to a new challenge (The Telegraph and Goal.com).
Kane has been out of action with a hamstring injury since picking up the problem in the defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day. In his absence, the team has struggled to score goals.
The Evening Standard report that Manchester United chief Ed Woodward would relish the prospect of pitting his negotiating skills against Daniel Levy over a deal for Kane in the summer.
The report suggests that the Tottenham chairman’s reputation of driving a hard bargain will not put off Woodward from seeking to sign Kane.
Sources close to the United chief say that he was fully prepared to lock horns with Levy when the club wanted to take Mauricio Pochettino off Spurs’ hands last year.
It is claimed that Kane has been on Woodward’s Old Trafford shopping list for a number of seasons.

Looking at the transfer decisions that United have made in the last five years or so in comparison with Tottenham, it is laughable to compare Woodward’s negotiating skills with Levy. Manchester United have no chance of signing Kane as the biggest clubs in the world will likely want him if he becomes available.
