Tottenham fans react after star linked with reported £80m Man United move
By Emma Sanders
Tottenham fans have reacted with amusement on Twitter after it was reported that Manchester United are prepared to make a huge bid in order to sign Harry Kane.
Calcio Mercato have claimed that Manchester United are prepared to splash £80million on the Tottenham star.
The report comes after Harry Kane committed his long-term future to Spurs with a contract until 2022.
That means most fans are taking the report with a pinch of salt, and see it as unlikely that Kane would opt to move to their Premier League rivals.
However, the Italian report claims that Kane may look to leave White Hart Lane if Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League – and stranger things have happened in football.

The Ferguson dynasty is over. Financially United are far superior but on the pitch this wouldn't be a step up for Harry!

It is reported that Mourinho sees Kane as the long-term replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic has enjoyed a fantastic start to his United career, netting 13 goals in 19 Premier League games.
However, he is 35 years old and probably only has a year or two left at the very highest level.
Kane has already netted 10 goals in 14 Premier League appearances this season and his total tally is 12 after he netted in the Champions League against Monaco and CSKA Moscow.
