Kane not for sale

Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur have put out a "not for sale" sign next to Harry Kane's name amid interest from Manchester United.

Manchester United are pondering a late move for the English international striker, according to the Guardian.

The Old Trafford club have already been warned off a bid for Kane when the Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward met Daniel Levy, the Tottenham Hotspur chairman in May.

Spurs are unwilling to sell their number one asset to any club this summer but United manager Louis van Gaal has openly revealed he is looking for a top class striker.

“When we can buy another striker, who has a lot of qualities, more than our players, then we buy,” the Dutchman said.

Wayne Rooney has been earmarked as Van Gaal's number one striker this season but the backup options behind him - Javier Hernández and James Wilson - have the club on the lookout for another player of his calibre.

Van Gaal sanctioned the transfer of Robin van Persie and declined to make Radamel Falcao's stay at the Theatre of Dreams permanent.

A move for Kane seems unlikely at this stage but not altogether impossible as Spurs are interested in Javier Hernández.

The London club may decide against a move for the Mexican forward as Kane's name is likely to come up during any negotiation.
