Why Dimitar Berbatov might prevent Harry Kane from joining Manchester United
Harry Kane will not be sold to a rival this summer, according to Tottenham. However, Manchester United might not be able to compete for his services.
The England captain became Spurs’ all-time leading scorer over the weekend when he scored his 200th Premier League goal. However, he is now only 60 short of Alan Shearer’s record.
Kane had previously pushed for a transfer to Manchester City in 2021, but Daniel Levy prevented any potential transfer, keeping his prized asset at the club.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of the Red Devils, is rumored to be searching for a striker this summer. The Dutchman has suggested Kane’s name, who is looking for a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Berbatov haunts Man United.
In addition to Tottenham’s reluctance to sell, United is hesitant to enter into negotiations. According to The Times, Man United had “bad memories of dealing with north London club from when they signed Dimitar Berbatov.”
After Spurs had accepted a surprise offer from Manchester City earlier in the day, Berbatov moved from White Hart Lane to United in 2008 for a fee of £ 30 million.
The Bulgarian went on to win the league in his first campaign at Old Trafford, tallying 14 goals in 43 appearances.
Tottenham, though, is eager to learn from its mistakes. Additionally, Daniel Levy has stated that he will only sell to a foreign buyer; There are rumors of interest from Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
It would, however, hinder his efforts to surpass Shearer’s record. Kane discussed his desire to break the record during a post-match interview against Manchester City.
“I always have it on the back of my mind, but I just take it game by game, season by season,” he said.
“I will break it because it’s there, and I feel good and fit, so we’ll see what happens,” she said.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli is on render to the Red Devils. With 16 goals in Serie A, the 24-year-old is the leading scorer. Ten Hag, however, has given the Nigerian player the edge over Kane in his thinking.
