Signing Harry Kane won’t be a straight-forward task for Manchester United this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman will do everything in his power to make it difficult for Kane to join another Premier League club. That is why we are hearing of rekindled interest from Bayern Munich, a club the 29-year-old was linked with previously.
I have no doubt that we’ll soon get an update from Real Madrid – not that we think think replacing Karim Benzema with a striker about to become 30 would be a nonsensical decision for the club to make.
Perhaps United should be looking at a potential deal in the same way. Kane is not getting younger and we’ve got a few players in their 30s already. Someone like Napoli’s Victor Osimhen would be a good alternative, although he won’t be any cheaper than the England captain.
Tottenham face a dilemma because Kane has entered the final 18 months of his deal and, although reports suggest he is open to discussing a new deal, his future remains unclear along with his chances of ever winning a trophy.
According to BILD TV reporter Valentina Maceri, who was speaking to Sky Sports, Bayern Munich would be far more likely to spend such money on the England international.
The Bundesliga giants were quoted around £140 million in the summer of 2021 for Kane’s signature.

This comes with the idea that Totten will lower their transfer demands for foreign clubs – in a bid to fend off clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Man City from signing Kane.
