If Tottenham finishes outside the top four, MANCHESTER UNITED is confident that they will sign Harry Kane this summer.
Old Trafford executives believe that if Spurs don’t qualify for the Champions League, they will decrease their £100 million asking price.
Through a third party, United has made contact with Kane’s team and has been encouraged by the reaction.
Kane, who will turn 30 in July, has fulfilled his goal of becoming Spurs’ all-time leading scorer.
It’s still thought that Kane has a better chance of finally winning a trophy at Old Trafford than at Tottenham, despite the fact that United were crushed 7-0 on Sunday at Anfield.
The England captain’s £200,000 per week contract expires at the end of the upcoming campaign, and failure to qualify for the Champions League gives potential suitors a stronger negotiating position.
A new deal had “not been much talked about,” according to Kane in January, but he was “confident there will be conversations over the coming months,” he added.
Champions Manchester City is no longer a contender because they were unable to sign the striker in 2021.
Since then, they have added Erling Haaland, who is competing for the Golden Boot with 27 Premier League goals.
Kane has 18, with United’s Marcus Rashford on 14.
The Red Devils require a second goal scorer to propel them toward title contention the next year.
Cristiano Ronaldo left in November, and his replacement is currently on loan. In 14 games, Wout Weghorst has scored just one.
After losing 1-0 to Wolves on Saturday, Spurs, who are currently in fourth position, are only three points behind resurgent Liverpool, who have a game in hand.
Man Utd news: Bruno Fernandes discovers FA verdict as Erik ten Hag sets tone for response
Following Manchester United’s embarrassing 7-0 loss at Liverpool, Bruno Fernandes was the focus of an FA inquiry while Erik ten Hag reprimanded his team.
If you don’t know the score, where’ve you been?
7:00 Liverpool One of the worst results ever for the Red Devils came against Manchester United at Anfield. Erik ten Hag’s team was humiliated as a result of a second-half meltdown, and now they must bounce back when United face Real Betis on Thursday for the opening leg of their Europa League round of 16 matchup.
A top-four finish in the Premier League remains the goal, and a trip to struggling Southampton on Sunday sits in between United’s brief title run and the European games. But just now, Ten Hag and company must deal with the aftermath from yet another very dreadful Merseyside day—and there have been plenty.
Fernandes escapes FA punishment
After appearing to push assistant referee Adam Nunn during Sunday’s humiliation at the hands of Liverpool, Bruno Fernandes won’t be punished. The substitute Red Devils captain, who has drawn criticism for his conduct both on and off the field throughout the second half, was flagged for handling the referee in the 81st minute when the score was 5-0.
If a player committed a sending-off offense that the match referees “did not notice,” the Football Association may pursue retroactive disciplinary action. The FA has stated that no action will be taken despite the fact that referee Andy Madley and his staff were aware of the occurrence but failed to mention it in their report.
Ten Hag calls in players early
After arriving at training at 7 a.m. on Monday, Erik ten Hag called for his team to show up. According to the Manchester Evening News, the United manager set the tone for a response by entering their Carrington training facility first.
Two hours later, celebrities like David de Gea and Casemiro were seen driving up in their flashy cars and getting ready for another of Ten Hag’s reprimands. On Sunday, the Red Devils’ manager refused to give his losers a chance to defend the result and claimed that his team will “bounce back.”
Shaw tells Keane what he wanted to hear
Luke Shaw was compelled to concede that United’s performance against Liverpool was a “disgrace” and “unacceptable” after Roy Keane pressed them to accept the defeat and fight back the following match. After the Ԁιꜱаꜱtrous day, former Red Devils captain Keane was upset with his team and advised them to “go into hiding” so they could concentrate on reacting.
Shaw told MUTV, “Out there on the field, I felt embarrassed for the players, for the fans who were rooting for us and who were watching at home. I can only apologize after seeing the second half. As players, we must take responsibility for our actions and acknowledge that they were far from satisfactory.
