Manchester United are in dire need of revamping their attacking lineup before the next season begins, and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is the top priority right now. However, the Spurs remained firm in the transfer negotiations with their high asking price, and now, the Red Devils have given the striker the final ultimatum in order to obtain his services.
Spurs have told United that the 29-year-old is not for sale, but the Red Devils are still holding out hope that the English international will try to make a move this summer.
Harry Kane asked to hand in transfer request
Since the Spurs won’t budge from their £100 million asking price for the 29-year-old England national team captain, the Red Devils have reportedly asked Kane to hand in a transfer request should he be interested in a move away from the North London-based club.

After failed negotiations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, United officials are prepared to abandon the blockbuster transfer of Kane. The North Londoners would like to see their all-time leading scorer issue a transfer request or make a public statement detailing his desire to leave as a last ditch effort to move the situation along. Spurs have informed the Manchester giants that he is not for sale, and they have little room to negotiate.
Can Kane beat Alan Shearer’s record?
The Tottenham star has scored an incredible 213 goals in the Premier League before he turns 30, making it all but certain that he will break the record. Since Alan Shearer’s retirement in 2006, numerous players have tried and failed to break his record of 260 goals.
Only three players in Premier League history have scored more than 188 goals; Sergio Aguero came up short with 184, and Thierry Henry’s move to Barcelona dashed his hopes.
Shearer is the all-time leader in goals, Wayne Rooney broke 200 but his challenge fizzled out at 208, and now Kane has made it into the top three.
But with Kane’s prolific scoring record, he could well be on his way to finishing his career as Premier League’s top goalscorer. That is, if he continues to play in the Premier League. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
