The Glazers are prepared to sanction a £90 million transfer bid for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane as they attempt to go some way to appeasing Manchester United supporters following the Old Trafford protests.
Last weekend’s demonstrations at the Theatre of Dreams rocked the world of football and led to the postponement of the club’s Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool.
Fans gathered outside the ground, chanting and setting off flares, before breaking on to the pitch at Old Trafford to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership of United.
In spite of the shocking scenes, the Glazers have no interest in selling Manchester United and are determined to double the club’s value in the next 10 years.
They know that they need to begin to repair the relationship with a large part of the fan base, however, and are ready to sanction a £90m offer for Harry to dampen the anger.
The Sun say Kane is keen on the possibility of joining the Red Devils this summer, although Spurs don’t want to sell to another Premier League club.
Tottenham president Daniel Levy values Kane at around £150 million but that appears a steep valuation, particularly given many sides are still recovering from the financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As well as targeting Kane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team have also been linked with moves for Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.
