Harry Kane ‘could leave Tottenham for free’ amid Manchester United interest

The Englishman is ready to force his move away from north London

Harry Kane is prepared to run down his current Tottenham contract to leave on a free transfer in 12 months’ time, but could miss his window of opportunity to join Manchester United.

The Englishman is out of contract in 2024 as it stands, and ‘there are increasing doubts at Spurs over Kane signing a new deal’ in north London amid the mess at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Without a manager or director of football as it stands, the club record scorer tried to force his way out in 2021, only for Daniel Levy to refuse to negotiate with Manchester City.

He continues to find the net on a regular basis, with 24 games in 33 Premier League games this campaign, but trophies continue to elude him on both a club and international level.

And, as per the Telegraph, the 29-year-old ‘is open to seeing out his Tottenham deal as one of his options’, with Kane able to enter pre-contract negotiations with clubs around Europe from January.

Manchester United appear the most interested party this summer, and the Red Devils ‘have started due diligence on what it would take to sign Kane this summer’, but are wary of how difficult it could be to strike a deal with Levy.

Looking for a marquee player, Kane would fit the bill, but like with Manchester City in 2021 (when they signed Erling Haaland a summer later), were Kane not to move this summer he could miss his window of opportunity to make the switch to Old Trafford.

On a free transfer, however, he would have his pick of clubs across Europe.
