The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur will demand a fee of £100m from any English club for Harry Kane next summer if the striker does not sign a new contract.
The report explains that signing a striker is Manchester United’s top priority next summer, with Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen thought to be the club’s two top targets.
It is explained that sources close to Old Trafford have said that Osimhen would be a better fit for Erik Ten Hag’s style of play as he offers pace, strength and pressing.
The Telegraph also state that a deal to sign Kane will be far from straightforward for United as Levy will not accept less than £100m from a Premier League rival if he fails to persuade the striker to sign a new deal.
The report adds that the Spurs chairman would have a ‘strong preference’ to sell the 29-year-old overseas and would not make the negotiation process easy.
The publication explains that Tottenham are still hoping to convince Kane to commit his future to the club and asserts that the North London club’s hopes may hinge on winning a trophy or qualifying for the Champions League.
Spurs Web Opinion
I think Kane can be convinced to sign a new contract at Tottenham if we qualify for the Champions League as I do not think the striker would be as tempted by the prospect of joining Man Utd as he was by Man City’s approach 18 months ago.
It is also not a given that Man Utd would be willing to pay £100m for the England captain, especially with the Glazers looking to sell the club.
