Manchester United made some mouthwatering offers for Tottenham’s striker Harry Kane before the commencement of this season but their bids were rejected by the Lilywhites as Mauricio Pochettino remains reluctant to part ways with the in-form forward.
Pochettino admitted he can’t afford to let go of Harry Kane in last year’s summer transfer as he wants to make a meaningful progress in this season’s Champions League and he needs the service of the England international to achieve it.
There are also some unknown truth to why the Tottenham top scorer ignore United’s approach for his signature despite the Red Devils huge-money offer.
According to Marca, Kane refused to join José Mourinho at the theater of dream as a result of his affection and regards for Tottenham’s Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino who has shown much faith in the Englishman.
Kane’s weekly wages would have been doubled by the Red Devils if he had agreed to move to the Old Trafford stadium in the last summer but the goal poacher opted to remain at the then white Hart Lane stadium claiming he wants a club where his playing time will be guaranteed.
Marca further suggest that England’s duo Kane and Dele Alli might be on their way to Santiago Benarbeu in the summer as it will be easy for Pochettino – who is being linked with Madrid’s job- to lure the players to join Real Madrid if he eventually become the next Madrid manager
Having failed to secure Kane’s signature before the start of the season, Mourinho turned his attention to former Everton player Romelu Lukaku whom he successfully purchased before the close of the window but the Belgian forward has done little for the club in terms of goals since the second half of the season.
