Tottenham ‘want £100MILLION in one up-front payment’ to sell Harry Kane this summer – and a lack of instalments could put Man United off as Erik ten Hag desperately searches for a new striker
- Tottenham are only willing to sell Harry Kane for an up-front payment of £100m
- There is hope that a lack of instalments could deter Manchester United
- This summer Kane is set to enter the final year of his Tottenham contract
Tottenham want an up front payment of £100million if they are to sell Harry Kane this summer.
Manchester United is a possible destination for Kane, but Tottenham are eager not to sell to a domestic rival.
As reported by The Times, Tottenham hope that by not accepting instalments it will deter United from pursuing a move for the striker.
Kane has just over a year remaining on his current contract at Tottenham.
Tottenham are aware that United do not want to be involved in lengthy negotiations as it could delay their plans to improve their attack.
Tottenham are only willing to sell Harry Kane for an upfront payment of £100million
Tottenham hope a lack of instalments will prevent Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United from making a move for Kane
In 2021 Tottenham rejected an offer of £75million, rising to £100million for Kane.
Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the England captain.
However, Tottenham feel that Kane would want to remain in England and break Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals, with Kane currently on 204.
Kane is Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer having found the net on 271 occasions for the club, but he is still awaiting his first trophy.
Despite Kane nearing the final year of his deal, Daniel Levy doesn’t feel Spurs have to sell him
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy doesn’t feel that the club have to sell Kane this summer if he hasn’t committed to a new deal.
For instance, Tottenham sold Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan when he had just six months remaining on his contract.
There remains uncertainty over the future of Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who was heavily critical of his players following the 3-3 draw with Southampton in which his side dropped points despite having led 3-1.
United acknowledge that they need to improve their attack in the summer and bring in a striker to truly replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
If United are unable to sign Kane they could turn to Napoli forward Victor Osimhen
Benjamin Sesko of RB Salzburg is another player that is under consideration by United
Although Marcus Rashford has been hugely impressive this season, as a whole United have still had some difficulties in front of goal – they have scored 41 times in the Premier League compared to Arsenal’s 66 and Manchester City’s 67.
If they are unable to secure the signing of Kane, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen could be an alternative option, with RB Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko also under consideration.
Sesko has already agreed a move to RB Leipzig for £20million, but United may attempt to hijack the deal.
