Manchester United fans in disbelief over interest in Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane

by Ben Topliss

It is fair to say that Manchester United fans weren’t unanimously delighted with the news that the club are interested in a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.

The young striker enjoyed a fine campaign last season having scored 31 goals in all competitions and eventually broke through into the England squad following a number of excellent performances.

However, there is a question mark over whether or not Kane can keep up his performance levels in the long-term. After all, one good season doesn’t make a player.

United fans greeted the revelation with a mixture of shock and disbelief:

If United are in for Kane, then they will have to deal with the notoriously difficult Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

Levy has managed to get huge fees for the likes of Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Dimitar Berbatov and dragged out their negotiations to the point where the deals sometimes looked like they wouldn’t be completed in time. He will do the same with Kane.

The potential signing could also impact James Wilson’s role at United. The 19-year-old is highly regarded at Old Trafford but it is hard to see where he will get a opportunity if Kane is signed for a huge sum.
