Tottenham ‘will BLOCK Harry Kane transfer exit this summer and risk Man Utd target quitting club for FREE’
TOTTENHAM are not willing to sell Harry Kane this summer, reports claim.
The Spurs talisman has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United.
Harry Kane is out of contract at Tottenham in the summer of 2024Rex
But the Londoners are not willing to sell the 29-year-old in the summer, according to Sky Sports.
Kane’s contract expires at the end of next season.
Talks over a new deal are currently on hold, meaning Spurs may end up running the risk of losing the striker for nothing in the summer of 2024.
It’s claimed Tottenham have no intentions of letting Kane leave the club this summer.
Sky claim the forward’s importance to the club is worth more than any potential transfer fee.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are keen to avoid a long-running transfer saga.
Reinforcements up front are needed and boss Erik ten Hag would rather bring someone in as early as possible so they can bed in with the squad.
Although Sky say the Red Devils are keen to explore a deal if Spurs change their stance.

But a long-running saga with tough negotiator Daniel Levy is not a route the club wants to go down.
Another option is reportedly going back in for Kane next January.
If he doesn’t sign a new deal then his current contract would have just six months left to run in January 2024.
From then he would also be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with overseas clubs, with Bayern Munich keen on the striker.
It’s said where Spurs finish this season will go a long way to determining whether Kane extends his stay in London.
And with Antonio Conte seemingly destined to leave, his successor is also important to whether the striker pens a new deal.
Kane will turn 30 in July and is eager to win trophies, rather than be the centre of another rebuild.
