English Premier League (EPL) club Tottenham Hotspur appears to be unwilling to sell its “gunslinger” Harry Kane, 30, at least not to a team in the same league.
“Manchester United (Man United) are considering a move for another striker as Tottenham refuse to sell Kane,” the Manchester Evening News reported on 26 June.
Kane has scored 28 goals and provided three assists in 37 league appearances this season, and he remains a goal-scoring machine. If it weren’t for the fearsome Elling Holland (Man City, 36 goals), he would be in contention for the top scorer’s award.
Out of contract at Tottenham next summer, Kane is on the radar of several big European clubs. Manchester United, Real Madrid (Spain), Paris Saint-Germain (France), and Chelsea (England) have all been linked with a move.
The Red Devils are currently struggling in the striker department. As a result, there has been talk of a move for Kane in the summer transfer window. In March, the Mirror reported that “United could offer more than the £100million ($164.2 million)메이저사이트 fee that Jack Grealish received for his move to Manchester City in 2021″. That would be the highest EPL transfer fee ever for an English player, suggesting they are desperate for Kane.

However, Tottenham are unlikely to sell Kane to United. “Chairman Daniel Levy has revealed he will not sell Kane,” says the Manchester Evening News, “refusing to sell despite being in a worse position than he was two years ago.” Kane has indirectly hinted at a move before, appearing on Gary Neville’s YouTube channel following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in 2021.
“United boss Eric ten Haag wants Kane, but the club is reluctant to negotiate with chairman Levy, who is stalling talks,” the outlet reported in April, quoting a source as saying, “There are even jokes that we would have to get rid of Levy to get Kane.”
Tottenham are currently in eighth place in the EPL for the 2022-23 season with 57 points as of the 26th, a far cry from third-placed Manchester United (72 points). However, just last month they were still within striking distance of each other, with one game in hand. It’s a sign that they can’t afford to concede to their potential rivals.
Tottenham’s intentions are also reflected in the latest rumours linking Kane with a move to Real Madrid. Spanish outlet Cadena Ser reported on the 26th that “Tottenham have made a counter-offer to Real Madrid for Kane”. This suggests that Tottenham would rather sell Kane to a rival club than let him go abroad.
