Manchester United have admitted defeat in their pursuit of Harry Kane, according to a report in Manchester Evening News.
Harry Kane has been linked extensively with a move to Man Utd for the past month or so, with some reports even suggesting the possibility of a sensational £200 million transfer swoop for the Spurs star (Daily Mail).
However, there have also been several reports that have cast doubt on the possibility of Kane swapping Spurs for Man Utd.
talkSPORT revealed that Spurs had no intention of selling Kane this summer while Sky Sports suggested that United aren’t willing to test the waters for the England captain as they have other priorities this summer.
Manchester Evening News have now claimed that there is no chance of Kane moving to Old Trafford this summer as the Red Devils will not be able to pay the asking price Spurs are demanding for the striker.
With his contract at Tottenham running until 2024, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are said to have given up their Kane chase and are instead focussing their efforts on landing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

Given the financial climate at present, there is no chance that any deal worth more than £100 million is going to go through this summer. So, the speculation involving Kane’s future never really had much merit to begin with. However, it could be a completely different story in a years’ time, particularly if Spurs don’t show signs of improvement.
