If Harry Kane was to depart Tottenham Hotspur this summer, a number of clubs, including Manchester United, are expected to be interested in signing the England national team captain.
According to stats from Transfermarkt, Kane has scored 221 goals across all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur through the course of his career and there is no doubt that he is one of the best strikers to ever play in the Premier League.
But for all of his incredible achievements at the club, he is yet to win a single piece of silverware. And it looks like the 27-year-old could be looking for a move away this summer as a result of it.
It won’t be easy to get a deal for him over the line though. Tottenham Hotspur would not want to let their star striker leave, especially for another side in the Premier League. As reported by The Sun, club chairman Daniel Levy wants at least £150 million in order to let Kane leave and he does not want players in exchange as part of the deal either.

It will be very difficult for Manchester United to get a deal done for Kane
There is no doubt that Kane is a sensational striker. Signing him would turn the Red Devils into serious Premier League contenders immediately. But it will be very difficult for them to get a deal over the line.
Especially considering the fact that Jadon Sancho appears to be their top target this summer. The Borussia Dortmund star is expected to command a transfer fee of around €90-95 million. And if that deal happens, it feels very unlikely that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would be able to sign Kane as well in the same window.
Thus, it goes without saying that it will be very surprising if Kane ends up at Old Trafford this summer. But never say never when it comes to football.
