Tottenham are ready to sell Harry Kane to Manchester United for a world-record fee, according to shock reports.
The Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be furious with the striker’s recent comments and needs cash to balance the books amid the coronavirus crisis. And according to reports, the North London club are willing to sanction a £200million move, eclipsing the £198m fee Paris Saint-German paid for Neymar in 2017.
Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City have also been linked with a stunning move for the England captain. However, given the current climate of uncertainty, that estimated figure seems unlikely – but any deal would surely smash Paul Pogba’s current British transfer record of £89m.

Manchester United are also looking to land a mega-move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. Kane, who joined the books at Spurs in 2004, is the third-highest all-time goalscorer at Tottenham with 181 goals in just 278 games.
But despite his impressive individual record, he is yet to lift a piece of silverware in his professional career. And with him turning 27 in the summer, the forward – who has not played since January due to his latest long-term injury – admitted he’s “ambitious” and won’t stick around at White Hart Lane for sentiment alone.
Kane said: “I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs. But I’ve always said, if I don’t feel we’re going in the right direction then I’m not someone who will just stay for the sake of it. I’m an ambitious player, I want to become one of the best players.”
