Harry Kane 'must force through Man Utd transfer' with Tottenham stance clear

Manchester United may struggle to sign Harry Kane this summer with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy determined to keep the England international.

Kane, 29, will have just one year left on his Spurs deal at the end of the season and may finally look to leave the north London club in search of silverware.

Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy claims there is growing concern at Tottenham that their record goalscorer will not sign a new contract because of the uncertainty surrounding the club.

Tottenham are currently without a permanent manager, with Ryan Mason once again caretaker boss and set to take charge of the team when they face United in the Premier League on Thursday.

Mason was placed in charge of the team this week following the departure of Cristian Stellini, who himself was named in the role last month after Antonio Conte was sacked.

Fabio Paratici has also resigned as the club's managing director of football after losing an appeal against his 30-month ban from the game, exacerbating the chaos engulfing the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Reddy claims the current situation at Tottenham has 'encouraged' United over a potential bid to sign Kane this summer, with Erik ten Hag keen to find a permanent replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

United are 'ready to explore' a deal for Kane but it is claimed that Levy’s current stance is that the striker is not on the market regardless of whether he agrees a new contract or not.

Kane 'would need to drive' Tottenham exit

Reddy claims that Kane himself would need to drive an exit from Tottenham, with the club unwilling to sell.

"Given the stance of both Tottenham and United, the onus would be on Kane to smooth a departure if that is what he desires," she wrote.

Kane has previously shown a willingness to force through a move away from Spurs.

In 2021, when he was linked with Manchester City, Kane failed to turn up to pre-season training after informing the club he wanted to leave.

He would remain at Tottenham, with City boss Pep Guardiola later claiming that Spurs rejected four bids from the Manchester club for Kane - with Levy refusing to part ways with the England captain.

Kane may have to resort to similar tactics this summer if he wants to secure a move to Old Trafford.
