Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is set to reject an approach from Manchester United and instead stay put in North London. 

According to The Mirror, the England captain would have considered joining the Red Devils if they had appointed ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, however their appointment of Erik Ten Hag, which is now all but confirmed, has discouraged Kane from signing.

Pochettino has been linked with United almost ever since departing England, but his current side Paris Saint-Germain’s recent poor performances seem to have put United off.

The Tottenham forward was heavily linked with a move to United’s rivals Manchester City last summer, and even spoke openly of his desire to leave, but a move never materialised and City’s attention now seems to have turned to Erling Braut Haaland.

With that in mind, United have been plotting a move for the Englishman, with Ten Hag even putting him top of his list of targets this summer.

Manchester United manager-elect Erik Ten Hag is keen on luring Harry Kane to Old Trafford

Kane and Pochettino remain close from their days together in North London, however, and United’s decision to snub the Argentine has deterred the former from pursuing a move to Old Trafford.

Ten Hag is expected to be handed a substantial budget to overhaul United’s current squad, which has underperformed for years now.

The Ajax boss is expected to be announced officially in the coming weeks, having agreed a deal behind closed doors.

Spurs’ recent revival under Antonio Conte is also believed to be a reason behind Kane’s change of mind.

The Lilywhites have been impressive of late, winning six of their last seven league games and scoring 25 times during that time.

Kane has also stood out in recent weeks, providing five assists in his last three matches, although he has failed to score in that time.

Despite scoring just once in his first 15 league matches this term, Kane now has 12 goals in the Premier League so far this campaign.
