Tottenham ‘strongly believe they will not sell Harry Kane to Manchester United this summer and would rather lose him on a free transfer next year’ – despite reports, the England striker ‘only wants a move to Old Trafford’
- Tottenham will rebuff any approach by a domestic rival to Harry Kane
- Kane is heavily linked with a potential move to Manchester United
- United will reportedly try to negotiate a deal early on
Tottenham are reportedly insisting they will not sell Harry Kane to a domestic rival despite strong interest from Manchester United in the summer.
The Red Devils have had the England captain in their sights for months as one of their key transfer targets and are considering an offer as the transfer window approaches.
Kane’s current contract in north London has one year left on what would normally force a club to sell the player and has therefore been linked with a move.
However the evening standard are now suggesting that Kane should not be allowed to leave Spurs and join another English club despite his contract expiring in the summer.
Instead, the club would prefer him to go on a free transfer the following season.
According to the reports, Manchester United will test Tottenham’s resolve over Kane ‘at the start of the transfer window’ which is unlikely to convince Levy.
The Spurs chairman would also favor Kane moving abroad, say to Real Madrid, as opposed to a move to one of their Premier League rivals.
However, it would take a lucrative offer from a club in Europe to convince the Tottenham chairman to part ways with the club’s all-time top scorer.
