United forced to rethink Kane plans

Manchester United have been forced to reconsider their plans to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham because of the financial uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The England captain has long been one of United’s top transfer targets, and recent comments that he was not prepared to stay in North London just “for the sake of it”, have sparked suggestions that they are ready to make a bid for him.

However, like all Premier League clubs, United have been hit hard by the suspension of all football, which has meant they do not know what size of transfer budget they are likely to have in the summer.

Kane is under contract at Spurs until 2024, and, even with the money crisis hitting football, the North London club will want at least £150 million for him

In normal years that is a sum that they might consider – but, 2020 is not a normal year and that amount is out of their reach.
