“I refuse to think” – ESPN pundit isn’t buying the rumors linking Harry Kane to Manchester United

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been linked to a possible move to Manchester United, a club that needs a proven striker for next season, so it is no surprise that The Red Devils are looking at the 28-year-old. 

However, ESPN’s Gabriele Marcotti isn’t buying this rumor as one that will come to fruition. Instead, the reporter believes that this information comes from Kane’s camp due to Manchester United not having a manager to sign off on the pursuit. 

Furthermore, with Cristiano Ronaldo still in the mix, it’s hard to envision them going for Kane, considering the 37-year-old has made all his starts from the center-forward position.

“I don’t know for certain; I’m just going to speculate and suggest here that 110-percent this comes from Harry Kane’s agent,” Marcotti said. 

“Obviously, they need a center-forward, but I refuse to think that all the mistakes that United have made that their new crew would go out and spend so much money on Harry Kane and his wages while Cristiano is still there, unsure whether they can shift him and without the thumbs up from a new manager.”

Sure, Manchester United could shift Ronaldo to the wing, but having a player in his late 30’s going up and down the flanks isn’t ideal. As a result, a Kane move would replace the Portugal international in the starting eleven.

However, if Spurs finish in the top four, these rumors and discussions could be for not.

Does Kane work hard enough for Guardiola’s City? They cover more yardage than anyone else which is amazing as they have the ball most of the time. I think he would be amazing for any team, but he does not chase at high intensity.

Man Utd are, like Spurs, a few seasons of challenging for proper trophies (Although their revenue can certainly bring them sooner than ours) . If Kane left for them I would be shaking my head in disgust, it would be a waste. Kane deserves trophies and to be part of a top team. Man Utd are not one.

I can’t see Kane moving unless it’s to City or one of the euro giants. Personally I think City would be mad not to bag him for £150m, he’s at his prime and would transform their attack, unlike the overpriced Grealish he wouldn’t be a bench warmer either.
One things for sure if he stays at Spurs he’ll end his career trophy-less.

Of course.
If you are dealing with a cold hearted devious person like Levy you need a battle hardened operator to go in against him not A.Bloke from round the corner.

The way Kane’s brother (his agent) messed us a oossible move to City I doubt he has the wherewithall to manipulate the Utd.narrative.
If he hasn’t already Harry sould be finding a proper agent who will at least give him a fighting chance against our devious charlatan chairman Levy.
