Manchester United have urged Harry Kane to put in a transfer request at Tottenham Hotspur to force a move away this summer, the UK Sun reports.
Kane is optimistic that the Red Devils will try again to sign him.
But it is believed that United ended their interest despite Erik ten Hag’s “obsession” to bring the England striker to Old Trafford as they felt he was too expensive and were unwilling to pay £100m.
But following news that Kane is still keen on joining United, the club have informed the player to push again for a move.
They want Kane to either put in an official transfer request or publish a strongly worded statement expressing his desire to join Spurs’ Premier League rivals.
Daniel Levy is determined to keep Kane in North London – with hope he will still sign a new deal in the coming 12 months – and the Tottenham chairman does not want to sell him to a direct rival.
