NOT IN A HARRY
Manchester United could abandon their chase for Tottenham star Harry Kane in order to spend the money on an entire squad overhaul.
And the prospect of having to deal with Spurs supremo Daniel Levy is also putting off United bigwigs from making a move.
Kane is one of the hottest properties in world football and could cost as much as £150million to prise away from Tottenham.
That would eclipse the British transfer record fee of £89m United paid Juventus to bring back Paul Pogba in 2016.
His £200,000-a-week contract runs until the end of the 2023/24 season.
And while United DO have the funds to buy the 26-year-old, The Athletic reports that “the money could be better spent elsewhere and more widely distributed, given the rebuild ongoing”.
Joe Cole has told Tanguy Ndombele to take Jose Mourinho’s criticism on the chin.
The former Chelsea star, who was berated by Mourinho in public during his time at Chelsea, told him to hold it together.
Cole said: “When it happened to me it was not a problem.
“It is a grown up’s sport.
“If you don’t play well or you don’t do what you are supposed to do, whether you expect to get criticised publicly or not, you need to be tough, you need to understand the nature of the beast.
“He is a young man, the right response is to knuckle down and perform.
“I saw the performance in question and if he was one of my players that would have been my stance on it.”
Harry Kane has been urged to stay at Tottenham and help them win trophies by football legend John Barnes.
The striker is sure to be linked with a host of Europe’s biggest clubs in the summer, with Manchester United believed to be long-term admirers.
The likes of Real Madrid and even soon-to-deposed Premier League champs Manchester City would also throw their hat into the ring.
And with Spurs set for another trophy-less season, interest in the England captain is sure to heat up.
But Barnes, who spent 10 years with Liverpool and was regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, believes Kane should spurn the interest.
Speaking to to BonusCodeBets.co.uk, the 56-year-old said: “Harry Kane should not look to leave Tottenham if he loves Spurs and is a fan of the club.
“If all players wanted to leave their club to win a trophy, all the players would go to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City or a Liverpool, and you’ll never have anyone playing anywhere else.
“You know you’re a Tottenham fan, you want to play for Tottenham so stay at Tottenham to try and help them win.
“Very similar with Bryan Robson at Manchester United. United and England captain at the time, whilst United were not doing well, he could have easily left.
“He thought I’m going to stay at Manchester United and help them to win.”
Morning, Spurs fans!
Yesterday brought the news that, all being well, Premier League action could return in May after the unprecedented enforced break caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The news will have pleased Tottenam boss Jose Mourinho who could have some of his side’s top stars back fit to play by that time, with forwards Harry Kane and Son Heung-min among a number of stars nursing long term injuries.
A number of former stars have publicly backed Mourinho despite a sticky start to his time in North London.
Ex England ace Joe Cole – who played under Mourinho at Chelsea – believes Daniel Levy and the club’s hierarchy were right to sack Mauricio Pochettino and replace him with Portuguese legend Mourinho.
Cole reckons Mourinho will be a success – but that he needs the support of Levy to sign the players he wants to build a squad capable of challenging.
Former Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov also said Mourinho needs more time before people judge him on his stint as Tottenham boss.
The Bulgarian thinks Mourinho was a good choice as coach and will reserve judgement until the end of the season.
Former manager Pochettino has publicly stated his desire to manage Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi back in Argentina for Newell’s Old Boys.
Poch has also spoken about how he was advising his former Spurs players of the health risks of continuing to train during the coronavirus pandemic.
Spurs will look to strengthen their squad in the summer window and they could land Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, who is yet to decide on where his future lies.
Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson could be available for a snip at £23million but Chelsea star Willian is unlikely to make the move.
