Can Manchester United really embrace Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)?
British media ‘Manchester Evening News (MEN)’ reported on the 26th (Korean time) that ‘a source working with Tottenham Daniel Levy joked that Manchester United would have to kill Kane to sign him’.
It is a story that Levy will not sell Kane as long as he is Tottenham chairman.
Kane’s contract with Tottenham has one year left. After the 2023-2024 season, Kane becomes a free agent. Tottenham could be taken away without receiving a penny of the transfer fee.
Tottenham have two options. This summer’s transfer market is the last chance to sell Kane at a high price. Or he has to sign an extension with Kane.
Levy declared that he would not sell Kane within the contract period, even if he would not receive a transfer fee and would be taken away. In fact, in 2021, Manchester City sent a love call to Kane, but Levy did not even start negotiations at all.
What Tottenham lack is a win.
Kane is arguably England’s best striker. He is second in the Premier League’s all-time scoring list. It is 41 goals away from Alan Shearer’s 260 goals. Tottenham franchise record for most goals has already been set.
However, there is no major championship trophy. Tottenham is unrelated for 15 consecutive years. Compared to competing big clubs, the scale of expenditure is small. There is a very high chance that we won’t be able to win in the future.메이저놀이터
Levy said that winning a championship is important to Kane, but remaining as a club legend is also very meaningful.
Because of this, it seems that Manchester United will not go all-in on Kane.
MEN said: ‘Manchester United manager Eric Tenhag wants Kane very strongly but is also eyeing Napoli’s Victor Osimen. Manchester United have not ended their interest in Kane, but since Levy has stated that he will not sell Kane, he is actively exploring other options,’ he said, highlighting the current situation.
Meanwhile, Kane’s ransom is expected to reach at least £100 million.
