Manchester United’s pursuit of Harry Kane has hit a roadblock as Tottenham Hotspur have declared the English striker is not for sale.
According to the Daily Mail, this statement doesn’t spell the end of United’s interest, but their pursuit will likely be unsuccessful.
Real Madrid are also assessing their options as they continue to monitor Kane’s situation.
They hope Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would prefer to sell the England captain to them rather than United.
Los Blancos are keen on securing Kane’s services, especially after Karim Benzema’s departure to Saudi Arabia.
However, they don’t want to pay the hefty £100 million price tag and are keeping an eye on a future deal for Kylian Mbappe.
Kane has attracted interest from other clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.
Despite the attention, the striker seems inclined to remain at Tottenham for another year.
This would cost Spurs a substantial fee for one of the world’s top strikers and their captain.
In light of the developments surrounding Kane, Man United are exploring alternative targets.
The Mirror reports that they have turned their attention to Atlanta’s Rasmus Hojlund.
The Denmark international has had an impressive season, bagging 15 goals and seven assists in 41 appearances.
Atalanta have placed a €50 million price tag on the striker, and with his contract set to expire in 2027, they hold the upper hand in negotiations.
The pursuit of Hojlund could provide them with a long-term solution to bolster their attacking line-up.
Randal Kolo Muani and Victor Osimhen are also on United’s radar, while they have also been linked with Evan Ferguson.
