Manchester United have ‘no chance’ of signing Harry Kane any time soon because he still has four years remaining on his Tottenham contract, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Last weekend, Kane revealed he will not stay at Spurs “for the sake of it” if the club is not progressing, leading to talk of the England captain eventually moving away from north London.
The Manchester Evening News claims United are long-term admirers of Kane but a deal for the striker is said to be impossible for now. That’s because Kane is contracted to Spurs until 2024, meaning it will take a huge fee to convince chairman Daniel Levy to part ways with his prize asset.
The report suggests Kane would cost in advance of £100 million, and surely that’s the cheapest he would go for. Knowing Levy, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Tottenham chase a world-record transfer fee for Kane.
At this point it is unclear how the ongoing coronavirus crisis will affect the summer transfer window. In any case, Spurs fans will be hoping Kane stays put for the foreseeable future.
