Man Utd chiefs accept chances of Kane deal remote

Manchester United accept the chance of signing Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer is remote.

The Manchester Evening News says Tottenham are under mounting financial pressure following the completion of their £1billion stadium, and chairman Daniel Levy confirmed on Tuesday the club has imposed a 20 per cent cut on all 550 non-playing staff amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Kane is yet to win a major trophy and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempted to recruit a long-term centre forward in the winter but Erling Haaland, 19, rejected United in favour of joining Borussia Dortmund.

Kane is contracted to Tottenham until 2024 and would command a fee well in excess of £100million and United view Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish as more immediate and attainable targets.
