Harry Kane is still waiting for Manchester United to resurrect their bid to sign him this summer, according to reports.
Erik ten Hag is a strong admirer of the England captain and is keen to acquire him this summer. However, the Red Devils have been put off by Daniel Levy’s £100 million valuation of Kane, who is also attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Manchester United value Kane at around £80million, consideringHarryHare that the striker, who will turn 30 years old next month, has just one year left on his Spurs contract.
As such, they have abandoned their pursuit of Kane and turned their attention to Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund, who is younger and will cost far less than the sum Levy wants for Kane.
However, according to a report by Sportsmail, Man United could be tempted to return to the negotiation table if Levy lowers his asking price closer to £80m.
As per the report, Kane is hoping that will be the case and that Levy will be lenient with his demands.
But the Spurs chairman has made it clear that he doesn’t want to sell Kane to an English club in a move that would weaken Spurs and strengthen one of their rivals. He would rather sell him to a club abroad, with PSG, Bayern and Madrid all monitoring the situation.
But Kane’s clear preference is to remain in England with United, and he hopes that Levy will relent rather than lose £80 million given that he will be available for nothing in a year.
Yet, the feeling is that Levy will stick to his guns, as he did when rejecting a £125m bid from Man City two years ago, and Kane will be forced to wait another year to leave as a free agent.
