Manchester United could be put off signing Harry Kane over the huge fee Tottenham would demand for his services, according to reports.
Tottenham reached the Champions League final last season – losing to Liverpool in the showpiece event – but this term they are already out of that competition, while they sit eighth in the Premier League.
Kane has been out since Spurs lost to Southampton on New Year’s Day because of a ruptured hamstring but is now back in training.
There is a real possibility that Tottenham may not be in the Champions League next season and a number of clubs could look to take advantage of that.
Juventus, Real Madrid and Man Utd have been linked with a move for Kane – who has scored 17 goals in 25 appearances this term – in the next transfer window.
And now Diario Madridista (via the Daily Express) claims Spurs will not let Kane leave for Man Utd or any other club for less than £154m (€170m) .
Although Man Utd have apparently identified him as the perfect signing to solve their lack of goalscorers, the report adds that Kane would prefer a move to Real Madrid.
The huge fee that Tottenham apparently want for Kane could put off Man Utd with Jadon Sancho already their main priority for the upcoming window.
