Sources: Tottenham slap £100m+ price tag on Harry Kane as Man United line up move
Tottenham have placed a price tag of over £100million on star man Harry Kane, sources have told Football Insider.
Man United have kept the 29-year-old England international on their radar over a potential summer move, with Erik ten Hag eager to bring a new striker to Old Trafford before the start of next season.
But Spurs will refuse to entertain offers for Kane that fall below their surprisingly large asking price even though he turns 30 in July and has only 15 months left on his current deal.
Kane’s current contract expires in the summer of 2024, but Football Insider sources revealed last Saturday (25 February) that Tottenham have opened talks with Kane over a new deal.
Kane was a top target for Man City last summer, but a move never came to fruition after Spurs rejected a £100million bid from the Premier League champions.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is said to be stubborn about keeping Kane beyond the summer and insists he won’t budge from his asking price even with Kane’s ongoing contract situation.

Kane recently became the top scorer of all time for Tottenham, with his goal in the 1-0 win over Man City early in February taking his goal tally to 267.
He graduated from the club’s academy in 2009 and has enjoyed a meteoric rise in north London to become one of the biggest stars in the Premier League.
Kane has already scored 20 times in 35 appearances across all competitions this season, and trails only Erling Haaland in the Premier League scoring charts.
The England captain is also closing in on breaking the all-time scoring record for the Three Lions, with his 53 goals in 80 international caps matching the record of Wayne Rooney.
