“One of the best ever” Ten Hag admits he loves Man United’s £100m target

“One of the best ever” Ten Hag admits he loves Man United’s £100m target

Despite Erik ten Hag’s belief that Harry Kane could become “possibly the best striker ever in the Premier League,” Manchester United seems likely to miss out on the Tottenham Hotspur star.

Sir Alex Ferguson once humorously remarked that dealing with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was more challenging than getting his hip replaced.

Although signing Kane could have elevated Ten Hag’s team to a new level, Manchester United’s management decided that dealing with the complex negotiations with Levy was not worth pursuing.

During the early stages of the transfer window, United realized that convincing Kane to leave Spurs and join a direct Premier League rival would be an uphill battle. Even if United had agreed to pay Tottenham’s £100 million asking price, Levy was unlikely to let his star player go to a competitor.

Despite Ten Hag’s admiration for Kane, the subsequent £64 million deal for Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund seemingly puts an end to any lingering hopes of a deal for Kane.

Ten Hag stated, “I have to respect the club and respect the player,” praising Kane as one of the greatest Premier League goalscorers but not commenting on the transfer rumors linking him to Old Trafford.

Kane, who is also being pursued by Bayern Munich, is only 47 goals away from equaling Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 260. As Bayern Munich moves closer to an agreement with Spurs, Kane, who turned 30 recently, must decide whether to make history in England or seek to end his trophy drought in Germany.
