Fabrizio Romano drops “crucial” Harry Kane transfer claim amid Man United takeover

Posted by

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Manchester United have not yet spoken to Harry Kane about a summer transfer due to takeover uncertainty.

What’s the latest on Harry Kane and Manchester United?
The Red Devils could have new owners in the near future. Indeed, a number of different parties have made their intentions known.

Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and Finnish entrepreneur Thomas Zilliacus have all made bids, while Elliott Management wants a minority stake.

However, it is unclear whether the Glazers will actually sell. This means Erik ten Hag and company have no idea who will be writing the checks this summer to cover any major transfers.

As a result, while the club’s football staff is eager to sign Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, they don’t yet know how much they can bid.

Romano explained his complete understanding of the latest situation involving the Spurs star on The United Stand.

He stated (6:30): “At the moment, first and foremost, there are no negotiations.” So far, Harry Kane has not spoken with United. It’s still early, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens at the end of the season. However, no direct conversations have taken place as of yet.

“Right now, everything is about internal debate because Man United needs to clarify how much money they can spend on a striker.” That will be crucial.

“Who will be the owners?” Any other group besides the Glazers? “How much do they want to spend on a striker?”

How much will Harry Kane cost?
According to a January report in The Daily Star, Man United or anyone else could pay around £300 million to sign Kane this summer.

According to their report, a weekly wage demand could now be close to £400k, with Spurs demanding a transfer fee of around £120m to sell the 29-year-old.

The Glazers might not be willing to spend that much on one player this summer, but someone like Sheikh Jassim might be if he can complete a takeover.

After all, he is a member of Qatar’s ruling royal family, which reportedly has a collective net worth of around £275 billion, so a move for Kane could be feasible.

For the time being, however, with the takeover still in the works, United may be unable to make a concrete move for the Englishman for some time.
