According to Football Insider, newly appointed Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo wants Jesse Lingard to be one of the two Man United stars included in a sensational £100 million cash-plus-players exchange for Harry Kane.

Football Insider also reported that Man United are now in pole position to sign the England captain Kane following behind-the-scenes developments, with Ole Gunnar Solskaer’s side pushing hard for the striker.

Lingard’s future at Old Trafford is in major doubt with just a year remaining on his contract but the 28-year-old reignited his career with an impressive loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season.

Lingard scored nine goals and five assists in 16 Premier League games and was a catalyst for West Ham’s impressive season as they qualified for the Europa League.

Manchester City reportedly made an opening bid for Harry Kane which would guarantee Tottenham at least £100m for the England striker.

City were also reportedly open to discussing a players-plus-money deal but Spurs rejected the offer for the 27-year-old. The swap option that City were open to discussing included Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte, and Gabriel Jesus.

Another day, another rumour surrounding Kane. It will only heat up further after the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.

Selling Kane to Man United feels way too close to home; they’re a side that we should be looking to compete with.

Lingard is also a player that would add something nice to the attack, but not at the expense of Kane.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I suppose you need to write articles and get clicks or whatever but it is a shame that you are commenting on a made up story. Only Levy and the DOF know what is happening so how would some awful blog find out about it. Tottenham don’t want to sell Kane that obvious. Levy is not going to say ‘but if we did we’d like so and so’. Even the most junior salesman wouldn’t do that. What’s more swaps don’t happen and haven’t for decades. All a load of bollocks as The Specials would say

  2. Do hope Kane does not leave Tottenham. It would be nice if Nuno could persuade Kane to stay on. He is a vital player for the team. Maybe Daniel Levy too can persuade Kane to stay. But if Kane insists , which as we know he wants to leave then the club better get an equivalent striker to replace him. For example I would suggest Antony Martial or Jack Grealish
    Or some top striker from a European club. Just hope Kane changes his mind!!
