Daniel Levy, Spurs’ chairman, was said to be angered by Kane’s recent comments and reports on Saturday claimed Spurs would accept a world record bid of around £200m for Kane
Tottenham star Harry Kane has opened the door to a move to Manchester United after Spurs demanded a world record £200million fee for the England skipper.
Kane has been considering his future at the club since Mauricio Pochettino’s departure in 2019 and he dropped the biggest hint yet in March that he could leave Spurs when he refused to commit his future to the club.
United are long-term admirers of Kane and are one of the few clubs in world football that could finance a move for the 26-year-old.
The papers say Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will allow Harry Kane to join Manchester United in the next transfer window. 😮— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) April 12, 2020

Daniel Levy, Spurs’ chairman, was said to be angered by Kane’s recent comments and reports on Saturday claimed Spurs would accept a world record bid of around £200m for Kane.
Spurs’ stadium cost around £1bn and the coroanvirus is set to have grave financial repercussions on all Premier League clubs, with Tottenham moving early to furlough all non-playing staff.
United have long felt that Kane would need to push for a move to Old Trafford in order for the delicate deal to go through and the Daily Mail claim the striker is receptive to a move to Old Trafford.
Kane’s main ambition is to win trophies but United would also provide him the perfect ground to maximise his commercial endeavours.
The forward is already on around £200,000-a-week at Spurs but could see his salary rise to as much £350,000-a-week at Old Trafford, alongside top earner David De Gea. Solskjaer was desperate to sign a striker in January and failed with a bid for Red Bull Salzburg star Erling Haaland.

Odion Ighalo was signed on loan instead but the Norwegian would jump at the chance to sign Kane, should he make it clear that United is his preferred destination.
United have a long history of signing England’s finest talent and they’re keen on adding Jadon Sancho this summer.
Dortmund value Sancho at around £120m and will not drop their valuation, regardless of how finances have been hit since the pandemic suspended football across Europe.
