Two Englishmen in high demand.
The Times reckon Manchester United are prepared to offer Jesse Lingard in a potential deal for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Kane has reportedly told Spurs that he wants to leave the club this summer after a long affiliation without any success. You don’t need me to explain why these players need trophies and United are moving in a much better position than his present excuse for a team.
Renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano offered clarity on the situation via Twitter this morning. Kane has not handed in a transfer request but it is clear that he has expressed a desire to leave the club.
Harry Kane desire to leave Tottenham is confirmed.
He’s NOT handed in a transfer request but he hopes to find a solution.#THFC position: NO intention to sell Kane.
Kane would refuse a new contract, as of today.
Man City are seriously interested, planning to open talks. #MCFC

There’s no denying that Spurs had a lot going for them but then Jose Mourinho happened.
It looks like Kane can’t stand it anymore and wants out.
Who could blame him?
The report claims that Kane wants to join Man City – but the player’s representatives believe the £150m asking price is too high.
United apparently have a plan to bring down that asking price – by offering Lingard as a makeweight.
The midfielder set the Premier League alight after joining West Ham on loan in January. And it remains to be seen whether he has a future at Old Trafford, but I have a feeling he will be moved on – in a difficult market – to benefit United some way or other.
Will Spurs do business with United on grounds that could see them land Lingard? Another man in demand this summer.
