It is also claimed that Tottenham would be demanding a one-time fee of £100 million up-front in the summer in order to sell the 29-year-old striker, who recently became their all-time highest goalscorer. Normally, clubs prefer to separate a transfer fee and pay them in instalments to preserve their transfer budget.

The Times add that United believe that a fee of £100 million will be needed to be reassured on their part for them to start talks with Spurs over a deal for Kane. Tottenham have resisted strong interest in their captain in the past, most notably when they fended off Manchester City’s major attempts to sign him in 2021.

The 29-year-old has scored 22 goals and provided four assists in all competitions for Spurs this season, which includes 20 goals in the Premier League itself.

It’s this reputation along with his insane ability to score a lot of goals every season is why United are deeply interested in signing him – even though they’ll have to pay a huge fee to get a deal done.
