Manchester United to launch transfer-record bid for Harry Kane next summer

Everton v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

It was only a matter of time before the incredible form of Tottenham's Harry Kane attracted the attention of Europe's biggest names.

Despite winning the Premier League golden boot for the second successive season, his name was barely mentioned among any transfer rumours last summer.

And after another barren August, Kane's form since the start of September has been absolutely frightening.

The 24-year-old has 15 goals in his last 10 games for club and country, including a hat-trick in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia.

He scored his 100th goal for his boyhood club in a 3-0 win at Everton a month ago, and has taken his tally to 84 Premier League goals in just 120 appearances.

And now, Manchester United boss José Mourinho is thought to be interested in bringing Kane to Old Trafford to partner Romelu Lukaku with an astonishing bid.

The Sun believe that United are willing to pay as much as £170m for the Englishman's services next summer, as he believes a strike force of Kane and Lukaku would make the club one of Europe's dominant forces again.


Spurs, however, are adamant that they won't be entertaining any bids for their star players, especially Kane, as they look to become regulars in the Premier League title race.

The North Londoners are preparing to offer the striker a new £150,000-a-week contract to see off any interest from other teams,.

However, United will not be deterred and could smash the Premier League transfer record for one of its best marksmen.


A source at Old Trafford claims that Kane has been on the Red Devils' radar for some time, even making an enquiry for the player a few years ago.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy rejected their offer immediately though, and told United that they could get more than the £77m they received for Gareth Bale.

“They were told by Spurs there was no chance. Jose is a big fan and is very interested," the source said.

“Zlatan Ibrahimovic will move on next summer, more than likely, freeing up a load of cash they plan to use.

“The problem for United is the money could get to a ridiculous level. It’s going to be more than Kylian Mbappe.

“It’s money they can lay their hands on but it will be interesting to see what Levy’s stance on the whole thing will be.”

With Kane's form also said to be interesting Real Madrid, it remains to be seen whether Spurs are able to hold onto their star man.
