Man Utd are reportedly plotting a gigantic raid on their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, in order to ‘hijack’ their talisman and Real Madrid target, Harry Kane.

Kane’s value has skyrocketed in recent months, and multiple European elites are said to keeping close tabs on the striker.

The Englishman has become a prime target for the reigning La Liga Champions, Real Madrid, with reports from recent weeks suggesting ‘a big money move’ to Spain is a huge possibility.

It was reported that the Old Trafford outfit are currently ‘the main rivals’ to Los Blancos’ endeavor of signing the 24-year-old.

Meanwhile, another report from The Sun claimed earlier this campaign that the Red Devils were preparing to launch a colossal £170 million bid for the frontman.

Though United and Madrid aren’t the only clubs vying to land the Spurs’ star, as defending league Champions Chelsea, and current league leaders Man City are also planning to make a move for the in-demand player.

Taking into account the increased intensity surrounding his main man, Spurs’ manager Mauricio Pochettino recently address the issue in a press conference.

“I hope that Harry Kane will be here for many years and bring lots of goals and victories and win some titles, that’s what we want,” said the Argentine tactician.

“Being responsible for a club like Tottenham, I would say if Real Madrid came, we would tell them we do not want to sell him. He would stay here and he would have to understand. Kane doesn’t have a price because we love him here. He is off the market.”
