Harry Kane transfer to Man Utd won’t happen "even if he wants it"

Harry Kane will not be leaving Tottenham this summer despite Manchester United being keen on the striker.

That’s the view of Liverpool legend Steve Nicol with Kane having signed a six-year contract just two years ago.

It keeps the England captain at the north London club until 2024 though there has been plenty of speculation that he could leave Spurs this summer.

Kane remains Tottenham’s top scorer in all competitions this season with 17 goals, despite not playing since January 1 due to a serious hamstring injury.

But, having failed to win silverware during his career, it’s been claimed the 26-year-old could seek a new challenge.

Though Nicol believes Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will not allow the forward to depart, even if he wants to, due to his contract.

"Well unfortunately for him he signed a long-term deal and Daniel Levy's not a guy who's going to bend for anybody," Nicol said on ESPN FC.

"To me, I just don't see how Harry Kane, whether he wants to go or not, is going."

Tottenham have struggled this season despite reaching the Champions League final last year, beaten by Liverpool in Madrid.

Kane could return before the season is out, though the Premier League is currently postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

And Spurs boss Jose Mourinho recently gave an update on Kane’s fitness.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss said: "I would say he is a little bit ahead [of schedule in his recovery].

"It gives me a hope that instead of one or two matches, it's three, four, five.

"I cannot imagine when, but there is a good possibility before the end of the season we have Sonny and Harry playing together."

Son Heung-min is also out injured for Tottenham with the South Korean having broken his arm in a win over Aston Villa last month.
