According to The Athletic, a tier-one source, Manchester United are prepared to ‘withdraw’ from the race to sign Harry Kane this summer.
The reason is that the Red Devils have agreed to a £73 million transfer of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and there is simply not enough money left in the budget.
Plus Tottenham value Harry Kane at £150 million and Manchester United will have to find buyers for Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, and Paul Pogba in order to bring the striker to Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old English striker is pushing to leave the club this summer and Manchester City are believed to be leading the race for the England captain. However, Spurs are refusing to lower their demands.
United are also thought to be in the market for a refined central defender who can pair up with club captain Harry Maguire to lead their title charge next season. According to sources, the Red Devils have opened talks with Real Madrid for the signing of French defender Raphael Varane.
