‘One of the best ever’: Ten Hag admits he loves Man United’s £100m target

Posted by

Erik ten Hag believes Harry Kane has the potential to become “possibly the best striker ever in the Premier League,” but Manchester United appears unlikely to land the Tottenham Hotspur talisman.

In a well-known aside, Sir Alex Ferguson once remarked that dealing with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was more painful than getting his hip replaced.

And even though Harry Kane would have been the kind of addition capable of instantly raising Ten Hag’s team to a new level, who can blame Manchester United’s management for deciding that it was simply not worth the trouble to begin drawn-out negotiations with one of football’s most elusive dealmakers?

Erik Ten Hag, the manager of Man United, adores Harry Kane.
Early in the transfer window, United came to the conclusion that trying to entice Kane away from Spurs was like fighting an uphill battle. Levy’s willingness to allow his star player to join a direct Premier League rival is far from certain, even if United had agreed to pay Tottenham’s £100 million asking price, according to The Times.

Even though Ten Hag continues to admire England international Harry Kane, the subsequent £64 million agreement with Atalanta thief Rasmus Hojlund should put a final nail in any lingering hopes of a deal for the player.

Ten Hag tells the Daily Mail, “I have to respect the club and respect the player,” praising the Premier League’s second-most prolific goalscorer of all time while declining to comment on those “Kane to Old Trafford” rumours.

“He is a great striker, and I have the utmost respect for him. among the very best ever. He might even surpass all previous Premier League striker records.

Kane, who has Bayern on his radar, only needs 47 goals to tie Alan Shearer’s 260-goal competition record. However, at the age of 30, the legendary Tottenham player must decide whether he would prefer to make history in England or finally end his trophy drought in Germany as Bayern Munich moves closer to an agreement with the Spurs management (Daily Mail). Last week, Kane celebrated his birthday with a towering, nostalgic cake.
