A reminder of Sir Alex Ferguson’s bad experience working with the North London club has led Erik ten Hag to decide against pursuing a transfer arrangement with Manchester United that includes buying Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane.
Manchester United has opted not to risk a protracted pursuit of Tottenham’s top striker Harry Kane due to the difficulties in negotiating with their chairman Daniel Levy. Despite the fact that he was able to get a hold of a copy of the book, the author was unable to get a hold of the actual book. Kane, a current Spurs player, had another unsuccessful season with the team, winning no trophies and losing in the first round of both the FA Cup and the Champions League. …and the…………………………………………
Given that Anthony Martial is anticipated to leave Old Trafford following a season marred by injuries, and Wout Weghorst’s loan from Burnley is coming to an end, Manchester United is prioritizing the acquisition of a central striker this summer. Marcus Rashford is the lone senior striker still in the public eye, but he likes to play on the left side of the attack rather than in the middle. Harry Kane would be the ideal addition to the United team and would help them in a critical area where they are currently deficient. But, a deal for Kane would be challenging, according to The Athletic, since Tottenham has no plans to offload their star striker this summer and will attempt to extend his contract with the team.
According to ESPN, key members of Manchester United are aware of the challenges presented by negotiations with Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, and his team. The fact that Levy is regarded as a strong negotiator and likely to drag out any transfer issue could interfere with United’s summer intentions. The story notes that after a last-minute signing of Dimitar Berbatov in the summer 2008 transfer window, former manager Sir Alex Ferguson and CEO David Gill vowed never to work with Spurs again. It is unlikely that Kane will end that streak this summer because they have kept their word, and United has not signed a player from Spurs in the fifteen years that have passed.
In addition to Harry Kane, Manchester United has expressed interest in other possible transfer targets like Mohammed Kudus, who Erik ten Hag coached at Ajax, and Goncalo Ramos, a striker for Benfica. Another top target is Victor Osimhen of Napoli, although the club may run into trouble due to his exorbitant transfer fee. While Kane’s contract with Tottenham runs in 2024 and he hasn’t won a significant title in his professional career, a transfer this summer would be advantageous for all sides.
