Gary Neville believes Manchester United would pay £100m for Tottenham star

Former Manchester United right-back Gary Neville has discussed the club’s transfer plans and how much money he thinks they would be willing to pay for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer.

Harry Kane has just over a year left on his current contract at Tottenham Hotspur and there has been speculation over a summer move. In turn, Manchester United are one of the clubs expected to make contract about a potential deal at the end of the season.

It’s no secret that Erik ten Hag will be in the market for a new striker, but a lot will depend on how quickly the Glazers sell the club because we don’t want them around when the transfer window reopens. The Dutchman signed Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley in January and it looks like he wants to sign a top striker in the summer.

There is a chance Kane is preparing to pledge his future to Tottenham, too.

During a recent appearance on The Overlap, Gary Neville spoke about Kane and United’s need for a new goalscorer. He thinks United would break their transfer record for the England captain by spending £100 million on him.

Neville initially joked, saying: “How many years has he got left on that 26-year deal that he signed?”

He added: “Is it two years? He’s not got one [year left, at the end of the season] has he? I think if you said to Manchester United right now with the fact that they’ve got no centre-forward at all hardly; ‘£100m for Harry Kane?’ They would snap your hands off.

“If you said to United now £100m for Harry Kane they would snap your hands off.”

The problem here is I don’t think the Glazers are willing to give Ten Hag that amount of money in the summer because they are planning a sale, which has some way to go before its complete.

Bids from potential investors can be made up until next week’s deadline.
