The Daily Express have rubbished claims that Manchester United are looking to do a swap deal with Tottenham for Harry Kane, revealing that the Red Devils are focusing on other targets instead.
United, along with Manchester City and Chelsea, have been credited with an interest in Kane but poaching the 27-year-old from Tottenham is unlikely to prove easy.
Reports indicate that Spurs remain resolute in their desire to hold on to their talisman and that it would take a near world record figure to even get Daniel Levy to the negotiating table.
Over the past few days, there have been some suggestions that United could look to do a part-exchange deal for the England captain, with Jesse Lingard being mooted as a player who could come the other way.
However, The Express have now labelled the rumours regarding a potential swap deal for Kane as ‘nonsense’.
The report reveals that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are not prioritising a move for the Spurs man now that Edison Cavani has signed an extension.
It is alleged that United instead have their eyes on the likes of Raphael Varane and Eduardo Camavinga.

I fear that falling at the last hurdle in the Euros will make create desperation in Kane’s mind about winning his first major trophy and thus make him push harder for a move this summer. While one would still not expect the striker to sulk if he does not get a transfer, he might certainly put the club in a difficult position if he demands a transfer.
