It seems like every high profile name has been linked with Manchester United lately. One name, in particular, will not be coming to Old Trafford in the Summer; Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
England’s captain has recently suggested that he would be open to a move to Manchester United and it would take a world-record fee of £200m if United were interested but Sky Sports is reporting that Kane will not be leaving for Old Trafford or any other Premier League rival.
Growing frustrations at Tottenham led Kane to openly speak about his frustration at so far failing to win trophies with Tottenham and says he is prepared to leave if the team does not progress.
“It’s one of those things, I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no. I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs. But it’s one of those things – I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it,” Kane recently said in an interview.
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better, I want to become one of the top, top players.
“It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever – but it’s not a no either.”
There was growing speculation about a possible (albeit far fetched) move to Manchester United but a move to Real Madrid or a similar team in a better position to win trophies seems like a more logical move.
With the disruption of the season due to the coronavirus outbreak, Kane might be willing to give Jose Mourinho and Tottenham one more shot when play resumes, but he isn’t ruling out a move
“It’s a hard thing to take as a player. I want to win at everything I do so when we’re coming close and you don’t quite get there it’s hard to take and starts to build up.
