Daniel Levy stands in Manchester United’s way ahead of Harry Kane transfer

The rumours surrounding Harry Kane are going nowhere until Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer puts pen to paper and signs a new contract.

Harry Kane knows that as does Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Right now, Levy might be too busy to be dealing with matters relating to Kane.

Spurs sacked Antonio Conte a week ago and since then, Fabio Paratici has stepped back from his role as managing director of football and they need to hire a new manager.

On top of that, Kane has a huge decision to make on his future at the end of the season. It’s been another disappointing season for the club on the pitch, without a trophy to show for it, so is it time for England’s record scorer to make a big move elsewhere?

United already know that signing Kane this year won’t be a straightforward task. Levy is a shrewd negotiator and he managed to dig his heels in and keep Kane when Man City were knocking on the door in 2021. A report from The Guardian at the time claims City made a £127 million bid to sign the goalscorer.

It is also believed Bayern Munich are monitoring Kane’s situation.

According to the Daily Mail, Levy refuses to sell players to Manchester United or Man City after allowing Kyle Walker to move to the latter. A decision he clearly regrets.

Spencer Morgan reports: “It is believed the north London club are looking for a fee in the region of £100m though this could be lowered if aren’t playing in Champions League next season. 

“Levy is a notoriously hard man to negotiate with for any club and his particular resistance to City and United could make negotiations very difficult for the latter.”

But if it wasn’t for United, do you think Levy would be ‘respected’ in the game like he is today? The Dimitar Berbatov deal springs to mind.

Meanwhile, I don’t think we can expect Kane to go AWOL because of the backlash it caused last time. I’m intrigued to see how he plays his cards in the summer but I wouldn’t be surprised if United were turned off the idea because it means having to deal with Levy.

Let us know in the comments section how you are expecting this one to play out in the coming months. It’s now or never for Kane.
