Manchester United have let both Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao leave Old Trafford this summer, which has led to plenty of rumours about the club looking to delve into the transfer market and add some real quality to support Wayne Rooney in that role.
It had all gone quiet on that front, but today during Tottenham’s Audi Cup match, the commentator said that Harry Kane had been left out of the match day squad due to a huge £40million offer from Manchester United for the 21-year old.
Kane was expected to be involved, but was pulled out late on due to the bid from Louis van Gaal’s men, as the two sides will go head-to-head in the season opener on Saturday.
Whilst Kane would be a fantastic signing he has repeatedly expressed his desire to stay at White Hart Lane for the upcoming campaign, and £40million certainly seems steep for a man who has a good eight months of football in his young career.
Would Kane be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
