Manchester United are very unlikely to meet Tottenham’s asking price for Harry Kane during the economic uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis this summer.
The Guardian reports that Kane would likely cost United around £150m and this is simply out of their financial reach after the club re-evaluated their budget amid the current climate.
There are no guarantees that the current Premier League season will be completed and no one knows when English football will resume after the coronavirus pandemic has subsided.
There are hopeful reports that the season could resume in June and still be completed, but there is still the possibility that there will be no football till as late as October.
With football clubs losing huge amounts of revenue during the postponements, and a lot more money to be lost if games are eventually played behind closed doors, they are much less likely to spend big in the transfer market, as and when the window eventually opens, METRO reports.
Kane has a contract at Spurs until 2024 and the north London club have no intention of letting him go for anything but top dollar.
