Manchester United have been given encouragement in their pursuit of Harry Kane after making a direct enquiry to Tottenham about the striker’s availability, according to reports.

Kane has put several Premier League clubs on alert ahead of the summer window after indicating that he is keen to leave Spurs at the end of the season.

United, along with Chelsea and Manchester City, are interested in a deal for the England captain.

And according to The Athletic, United’s ambitions have not been dampened following Tottenham’s response to their approach over the possibility of signing Kane.

The report claims that Tottenham’s firm stance over Kane is viewed as a negotiating tactic and that a deal worth £120 million would be enough to prise the striker away from north London this summer.

It’s also understood that Spurs are actively looking for a replacement for Kane and are telling potential arrivals that a starting spot is up for grabs.

Kane, meanwhile, is said to be ‘disillusioned’ at Tottenham, with the club’s chairman Daniel Levy failing to convince him over the team’s ambitions and strategy.

‘I want to be playing in the biggest games. This season, I’m watching the Champions League and the English teams doing amazing, and they’re the games I want to be involved in,’ Kane told Sky Sports this week.

‘It’s a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I’m at. Ultimately it’s going to be down to me, how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career.’

Kane also refused to rule out the prospect of Levy looking to sell him in order to use the high transfer fee to bolster Spurs’ squad.

‘He’s been great with me. He’s always rewarded me with contracts. I signed a four, five-year deal when I was 21 but I did well and he added to that,’ said Kane.

‘So he’s been fair with me, we’ve always had a good relationship.

‘But you don’t know what the chairman’s thinking – he might want to sell me. He might be thinking, ‘if I can get £100m for you then why not?’. I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.

‘I’ve given the club 16 years of my life, so I hope we can have a good, honest conversation and see where we’re at.’
