The rumours regarding Harry Kane joining Manchester United in the summer are heating up.
Fresh developments suggest Tottenham Hotspur are set to place a minimum £85 million price tag on Kane, as per the Daily Mail.
The report notes that figure is likely to increase for a domestic rival, so Spurs are also welcoming offers from clubs abroad like Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
It was over a week ago that ESPN reported that Manchester United had their eyes on their striker targets this summer.
They included Tottenham’s Kane, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko.
Earlier today, respected journalist Miguel Delaney echoed that but added Kane would be open to a summer move to Old Trafford.
Kane enters the final 12 months of his contract at the end of the season, but there is a chance he won’t agree to new terms at the London club.
Tottenham potentially missing out on Champions League football next season could be a factor in Kane’s decision, though he could be tempted to push towards the opportunity to work with Erik ten Hag at a much bigger club.
In the current market, £85m for Kane doesn’t sound like a bad price.
But if Ten Hag sees another option, someone younger like Victor Osimhen, being a better fit… then we should work towards what the manager thinks is best.
A lot will depend on whether the Glazers sell Manchester United this year.
