Manchester United will reportedly miss out on signing their long-time target Harry Kane once again this summer.

Kane's current contract with Tottenham Hotspur is until 2024 and no discussions over an extension are ongoing at the moment. Kane nearly ended his long-standing association with Spurs in 2021 when he came close to joining Manchester City. But the transfer never happened, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy refusing to sell his decorated striker.

Around the same time, even Manchester United were keen on landing Kane but the Red Devils nearly lost the transfer battle to their derby rivals.

However, with Manchester City no longer in the race to sign Kane following the arrival of young striker Erling Haaland, the coming months could be perfect for the Old Trafford club to acquire Kane's services.

In what is an unfortunate situation for Manchester United, Spurs have decided not to sell their skipper to a Premier League rival, reported The Times.

Kane recently netted a goal in Spurs' 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Premier League, which saw the Englishman become Tottenham's all-time scorer. With 267 goals, Kane broke Jimmy Greaves' Spurs record that stood intact for 53 years.

Since Spurs would not want to lose Kane on a free transfer, the club would either tie him down in a new contract or sell him in the upcoming summer window.

Kane, who is Spurs' academy product, has been associated with the North London club since 2004. After rising through Spurs' youth system, he made his senior debut with a fourth-tier club Leyton Orient in the 2010-11 season. Kane, who has netted 53 for England national team, is yet to win a trophy in his career.

Meanwhile, Kane is not the only striker linked with Manchester United. Napoli's Victor Osimhen is also on Erik ten Hag's radar but the Red Devils could be wary of the Serie A club's asking price of $107 million. The Dutch boss has also decided to get rid of Anthony Martial and captain Harry Maguire in the 2023 summer window to raise funds for signing a quality forward, reported

Martial's 2022-23 season has been marred with injuries, which forced him to miss 20 out of Manchester United's 34 competitive matches this campaign. Maguire, on the other hand, has been dropped from the Red Devils' starting lineup following the arrival of Argentinian center-back Lisandro Martinez earlier in the summer.
