Transfer Talk: Kane frustration has United on standby
Manchester United are reportedly keen on bringing Tottenham star Harry Kane to Old Trafford in the summer.
Kane, 29, has spent the entirety of his senior career in North London but has no major honours to show for it, leading to growing frustrations.
And with Spurs struggling to keep pace with the Premier League's top four this season, the England captain could initiate another attempt to force his way out of the club.
Kane tried to push through a move to Manchester City two seasons ago but chairman Daniel Levy refused to sanction a transfer for anything less than £120million.
But reports from The Daily Mail suggest that Levy would not stand in the striker's way should he ask to leave again this summer.
The No10 has a contract that expires in the summer of 2024 and despite hints of a new deal earlier in the season, it seems unlikely that Kane will renew under the current regime.
Therefore, this summer will likely be the last opportunity for the club to cash in on the talented goalscorer.
Erik ten Hag is said to be keen on bringing an established No9 to Manchester — after Wout Weghorst's six-month loan deal has expired.
However, Spurs are notoriously tough negotiators so any deal in the coming months will require patience and flexibility on both sides.
