The Independent have reported that Jose Mourinho has signed a pre-contract with Manchester United and that his number one transfer target is Harry Kane.
It’s not the first time that Manchester United have been linked with Kane, but it’s fair to say that the prospect of him moving to Old Trafford is more remote than ever. United are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season, while Spurs are still in the hunt for the title. The financial disparity between the clubs may remain, but Tottenham are closing the gap as they prepare to move to a new stadium and an increase in TV revenue.
What’s more, Kane clearly loves the club and is very happy playing under Mauricio Pochettino, which the journalist Miguel Delaney acknowledges. Unfortunately, Delaney somewhat invites scorn with his £60m valuation for Kane. Considering that Spurs sold Gareth Bale for a world record fee, why would they flog Kane for any less, given his age, nationality and contract status?
It’s clearly not going to happen and even Manchester United fans can’t convince themselves that it will…
Why would Kane leave Spurs for #MUFC ?

Kane would be taking a footballing step down by joining United so no way it will happen. Plus he loves it there and they love him.

There's absolutely no chance, Daniel Levy would sell us Harry Kane. He'd demand at least £60m for him, if he was willing to negotiate. #mufc

Who are on Mou's wishlist apart from Harry Kane who we are clearly NOT getting?
