Manchester United have accepted defeat in their attempts to sign Tottenham Striker Harry Kane, leaving Manchester City and Real Madrid to battle it out, MySportDab reports.
Harry Kane is now the centre of a £150million bidding war between Real Madrid and Manchester City.
Kane recently refused to rule out leaving Tottenham if they don’t start winning trophies and reports suggest the England man could be sold to fund a massive squad overhaul.
Kane said last week during in an Instagram Live session: “It’s one of the things, I can’t say yes, I can’t say no. I love Spurs, I have always loved Spurs.
“But I’ve always said it that if I don’t feel we’re moving in the right direction as a team, then I’m not here to just stay for the sake of it.
“I’m a very ambitious player, I want to be better, I want to improve, I want to become one of the best players.”
MySportDab understands Kane’s honest remarks have sent a message to some of Europe’s biggest clubs to take notice and re-examine their summer plans.
According to The Express, Manchester United have been long-time admirers of Kane but Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has accepted the chances of him moving to Old Trafford are slim.
Premier League Rivals Manchester City are keen to improve their squad this summer, and a new striker could be on their new want list.
Pep Guardiola looks likely to lose Brazilian international Gabriel Jesus to Juventus, who have made him their key transfer target ahead of the summer.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are ready to make more changes to their squad this summer and have looked at which strikers could be available.
Kane is a striker Los Blancos have watched very closely over the years since he won the Premier League Top scorer award four years ago.
Kane has scored 17 goals in just 25 match for the north London club this season despite injuries leaving him for months.
