Harry Kane is set to ‘snub’ summer interest from Manchester United and remain at Tottenham.
United had been interested in a summer deal for the England captain as the Red Devils look to rebuild under incoming manager Erik ten Hag, with Kane having emerged as an ambitious transfer target.
Kane expressed a desire to leave Spurs last summer amid interest from Manchester City, though the North Londoners resisted an approach from the Etihad to keep hold of the 28-year-old.
Spurs have shown encouraging signs in recent weeks and are now favourites to secure Champions League football, a scenario that could lead Kane to remain at the club this summer.
Kane has been pivotal in that run after finding his form under Antonio Conte, scoring five goals and providing six assists across his last seven Premier League appearances.
The Mirror are reporting that the forward would have considered a switch to Old Trafford had Mauricio Pochettino been named as the club’s new permanent manager, but will turn down the chance to link up with Ten Hag in favour of remaining ‘a club legend’ at Spurs.
Kane has scored 243 goals in all competitions for Spurs and is within 23 goals of equalling Jimmy Greaves’ club goalscoring record, whilst the side’s recent form under Conte has raised hopes that Spurs can be competitive next season.
Manchester City are unlikely to return with renewed interest this summer with the Premier League champions focused on the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland at present.
