Convincing Daniel Levy will be tough
The Red Devils’ vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, knows Spurs’ Daniel Levy would be hard to convince to let Kane leave White Hart Lane but still believes he can secure the deal at the right price.
Levy’s history of being a notorious negotiator will come to the fore and might test United’s patience if Van Gaal decides to go through with the deal.
If, however, Kane to Manchester United actually becomes a reality, he will join the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Carrick and Teddy Sheringham who have switched White Hart Lane for Old Trafford.
The Tottenham ace forward is contracted with the North London club till 2020, so Spurs won’t let him leave for anything less than a stupendous amount of money.
Wayne Rooney for company
Kane is still very young and thus there is scope for further development. A move to the Premier League giants would only benefit him, where he will have compatriot Wayne Rooney to guide him forward.
Finishing, long shots, headed attempts, dribbling, defensive contribution are all his key strengths according to WhoScored and with a pass success rate of 75.2% in the league and winning 1.5 aerial duels per game, Kane is a force to reckoned with.
Valued at only €15 million Transfermarkt, but keeping in mind his form and talent,the 21-year old Spurs forward will be sold at a much higher price regardless of which European club approaches for his services. The PFA Young Player of the Year 2014-15 made his debut for England on March,2015 at Wembley Stadium and scored just minutes after taking the pitch against Lithuania.
