Man Utd make Harry Kane transfer decision after Tottenham exit hint | Football | Sport

Manchester United have reportedly decided Harry Kane hasn’t given them sufficient encouragement to pursue a transfer deal yet, despite the player’s comments about possibly leaving Tottenham. The England international has long been on the radar of the Red Devils and is growing increasingly frustrated with life in north London, with Spurs getting nowhere near winning the Premier League title over the years.

Manchester United want a new striker this summer – and Kane could be available.

The Tottenham star has fuelled talk of a move away by recently saying: “I love Spurs and always will love Spurs but it’s one of those things.

“I’ve always said if I don’t feel we are progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not one to stay there for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player. I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players.

“It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever, but it’s not a ‘no’ either.”

It’s previously been reported that United will only go after Kane should they receive sufficient encouragement.

And The Athletic say it hasn’t reached that point just yet.

United have found dealing with Tottenham chief Daniel Levy difficult ever since luring Dimitar Berbatov to Old Trafford in 2008.

Luka Modric wanted to join the club in 2011 but Levy forced him to stay – before flogging him to Real Madrid 12 months later.

In 2013, United offered more money than Real in order to sign Gareth Bale.

But Spurs declined the offer, being reluctant to sell the Wales international to a direct rival, and again opted to send the player to Spain.

“Kane did say ‘next year will be the first chance the gaffer will have to bed his values into the team’.

“That says to me he is somebody who is already thinking of next year, so he’s not going anywhere.

“I’d give this manager a chance with his pre-season, do next season and see where it goes. Because from when he made his debut up to now, I think he has given them everything he can.”

He then added: “If nothing happens and Harry Kane decides to leave then you have you have to say ‘well, he’s under Mourinho, nothing has changed’. He wants to win medals,” added Wright.

“You can’t have that kind of ability, that kind of goalscorer who is able to win matches, and not win anything. You can’t.”
