Man Utd launch initial moves to begin Harry Kane transfer from Spurs

Manchester United have started to make attempts to find out what it will take to sign Harry Kane, with expectation increasing that the striker will not sign a new Tottenham contract this summer, according to The Telegraph.

It is understood that United plan to bid for Kane and that the due diligence over what his price tag might be and how to handle negotiations with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has already begun.

United are already well aware of how difficult Levy will be to negotiate with over Kane and that they cannot afford a chase that lasts until the last day of the summer transfer window while risking missing out on other targets such as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen in the meantime.

That is why the Old Trafford club have started work now to try to establish the best way to make an early move for Kane and give themselves time to switch back to Osimhen or somebody else if Levy digs his heels in and is prepared to risk the England captain’s contract running down.

Sources believe that while Levy might be prepared to listen to an offer in the region of £80m from overseas for Kane, that he will demand at least £100m from English clubs and may even decide to reject all bids from the Premier League.

Chelsea’s move to make Mauricio Pochettino the club’s new permanent head coach will almost certainly spark speculation of the Argentine trying to reunite with Kane at Stamford Bridge. But such a scenario is rated as extremely unlikely given the rivalry that exists between the two clubs.
