Manchester United are ready to step up their interest in Harry Kane and are prepared to launch a £40m bid, reports The Mirror.
Sky Sports yesterday suggested that Kane is now on Man United’s radar this summer and The Mirror’s David McDonnell says he is now the top transfer target this summer after Real Madrid announced that Gareth Bale will be staying in the Spanish capital.
Given that Kane is English, plays for Spurs and that United are the interested party, £40m is around the price Daniel Levy would try and get for him given that he scored 31 goals last season.
Tottenham chairman Levy is renowned for ensuring his over-valuation on players is met and he is often apprehensive to sell to teams in the Premier League, as seen with Luka Modric.
A £40 million bid would almost certainly be enough to get Spurs to part with Kane but there is a strong debate over whether he would be worth that much.
Although Spurs have stated they have no desire to sell their golden boy, a large bid from United could have Levy thinking twice, as he did with Bale when he moved to Real Madrid.
Kane signed a new five year deal at the North London club as recently as February, meaning his valuation could well be a lot higher than the £40 million United are looking to pay.
