Tottenham ‘are adamant they will not sell Harry Kane to Manchester United this summer and would rather lose him on a free transfer next year’ – despite reports the England forward ‘only wants a move to Old Trafford”
- Tottenham will reject any approach for Harry Kane from a domestic rival
- Kane has been heavily linked with a potential move to Manchester United
- Reports suggest United will try to broker a deal early in the window
Tottenham are adamant they will not sell Harry Kane to a domestic rival this summer despite strong interest from Manchester United, according to reports.
The Red Devils have had the England captain as one of their main transfer targets for months now and, as the transfer window approaches, are considering an offer.
Kane has one year left on his current contract in north London, which would typically require a club to sell the player, and has been linked with a move.
However, the evening standard now suggest that, despite his contract expiring, Kane will not be allowed to leave Spurs for another English club in the summer.
Instead, the club would prefer to see him leave on a free transfer the following season.

Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United are favorites to land Kane in the summer window
Reports claim Manchester United will test Tottenham’s resolve on Kane ‘at the start of the transfer window’ which is unlikely to convince Levy.
The Spurs chairman is reportedly in favor of a move abroad for Kane, such as Real Madrid, rather than joining one of their Premier League rivals.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu as a replacement for French talisman Karim Benzema, who could leave this summer.
However, it would take a lucrative offer from any club in Europe to persuade the Tottenham president to part ways with the club’s all-time top scorer.
Kane is unlikely to have any interest in leaving the Premier League anyway, given he is 47 goals away from equaling the goalscoring record set by Alan Shearer.
The England skipper capped off the 2022-23 campaign in brilliant fashion, as he netted an emphatic brace in Spurs’ 4-1 victory at Leeds on the final day.
There had been suggestions that Kane ‘only wanted’ a move to United during the summer window, as interest from the Red Devils has become evident in recent weeks.
The 29-year-old reportedly has no intention of moving abroad despite expressions of interest from Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and PSG.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is hesitant to see the club’s top scorer leave
Mail Sport reported this week that United believe Tottenham’s price tag for Kane will be £100million.
With uncertainty surrounding Spurs’ immediate future and next boss, the Red Devils don’t expect under-pressure Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to agree to sell easily.
United have been linked with a host of forwards should a move by Kane prove unsuccessful this summer.
Napoli leader Victor Osimhen has been linked with the club on several occasions, with Atalanta youngster Rasmus Hojlund, Benfica ace Goncalo Ramos and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani also reportedly targeted.
