Premier League giants Manchester United are eyeing a swoop for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to the Sun.

The newspaper claims that United manager Jose Mourinho is lining up a mega £170million swoop for the centre-forward.

It is understood that Mourinho is a long-term admirer of the 24-year-old and believes a partnership alongside Romelu Lukaku at Old Trafford could make United a European force.

The report details that United attempted a £40million deal which included Javier Hernandez two years ago, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy immediately rebuffed the offer.

Spurs are reportedly “adamant” they will once again reject any offer for Kane from United and are preparing to improve his contract to a new £150,000-a-week deal.

Good move for Spurs?

Selling Kane to United would be a woeful decision from Spurs and could see their rivals stroll to the league title over the next few years.

Mauricio Pochettino needs to keep the prolific goalscorer at the North London club and he is their best chance of winning silverware.

The England international has already scored 11 goals in nine games for Spurs this season in all competitions, including five in two in the Champions League.

Kane simply must stay where he is despite a potential huge £170million income and Spurs must certainly not sell to a direct rival.

Likely to happen?

It seems very unlikely that Spurs would sell Kane to a Premier League rival and the fact they are planning a new improved contract suggests his immediate future will be with Spurs.

The strong interest from European giants Real Madrid should be the greater concern for fans and they will want a new deal wrapped up quickly.

United are unlikely to land their man despite the cash they are willing to offer as the 2017 summer transfer window re-shaped the value surrounding top players.
