Harry Kane will not be sold by Tottenham to a Premier League opponent this summer because Manchester United prioritizes a top-tier striker to bolster their attack.
The Old Trafford team has been interested in Spurs’ all-time leading scorer for a long time as he approaches the last year of his contract in June.
United has conducted research and surveys on more youthful, dynamic prospects, such Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, with the impression that Kane prefers to stay at Tottenham provided they show desire going ahead.
Chairman Daniel Levy is scheduled to initiate formal negotiations with the England captain on new terms, but even if there is no progress toward a new agreement, he will continue to prevent potential bidders as he has in the past.
As a result, if he leaves Tottenham, Kane wants to stay in the Premier League and has acknowledged that beating Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals is “always there in the back of my mind.”
In England, his choices are significantly constrained since Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez are now available at former suitors Manchester City. United sees him as a surefire source of goals, but they don’t want to fight Levy in another battle to the death while still keeping the long term in mind.
The age distribution of the other forwards they have attentively watched, including Osimhen, Goncalo Ramos, Mohammed Kudus, and Benjamin Sesko, reveals this.
Bayern Munich has already shown interest in Kane, so if Spurs are unable to persuade him to remain longer, they would rather that he pursue his career elsewhere.
The player’s choice might also be influenced by what takes on in the dugout. Antonio Conte’s future is unknown, and Kane acolytes are two among the candidates to succeed the Italian if he departs.
