Kane, 30, had been Man United‘s key transfer target at the beginning of the summer.

But as the reality of what Tottenham would demand for him despite his contract status became clear, the Red Devils decided to pivot to Rasmus Hojlund instead.

According to the Mail, Kane would have been willing to see out the final year of his Spurs contract before joining United on a free transfer, had they given him the requisite assurances.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was reportedly under pressure from his boss Joe Lewis to cash in on Kane rather than lose him for nothing next year.

But Kane would have been willing to resist if a move to Old Trafford was in play.

When the Red Devils forked out £72million for Rasmus Hojlund, however, the England captain gave up on the switch and decided to prioritise Bayern Munich.

He subsequently signed for the Bundesliga champions in a £104m deal just a day before the start of the Premier League season.

Kane has scored four goals in his first four matches in the German top flight.

The forward is set to meet English opposition tomorrow night, for the first time since leaving Spurs, when Bayern welcome Man United to Allianz Arena.

He is likely to see England team-mates Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire in Munich.

While his former Spurs pals Christian Eriksen and Sergio Reguilon could also be involved.
