Jose Mourinho has been on the lookout for a world-class striker to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, and is said to be keen on signing the likes of Alvaro Morata and Robert Lewandowski, who are both unsettled at their respective clubs and could be on the move.
However, Kane has also found his name on the list of candidates the Portuguese boss is considering swooping for this summer, but it is unlikely that he will be making the switch to Old Trafford any time soon.
The Englishman has been the darling of the Spurs’ faithful since he burst on to the scene a few years ago, with fans regularly belting out the “Harry Kane, he’s one of our own” chant on the terraces at White Hart Lane.
He has established himself as the key man in this Tottenham side and while he has unsurprisingly attracted interest from several top clubs in Europe, Spurs are holding firm, and are said to have ‘laughed off’ suggestions that they would let him go for £100 million.
The London club are attempting to build something special under Mauricio Pochettino, and will hope to have a side that will be ready to have another go at the Premier League title as well as do better in the Champions League.
Tottenham are adamant that they will not become a feeder club like Southampton, who constantly produce incredible youth players, only to see them snapped up by bigger clubs.
Chairman Daniel Levy is known to be a hard nut to crack when it comes to negotiations, and according to The Independent, he will only let Kane go for a fee closer to the £200 million mark.
