Manchester United are monitoring Harry Kane’s situation after the Tottenham star failed to show for training today, according to reports. The England international is eager to leave Spurs behind. And that could happen ahead of the close of the summer transfer window on August 31.
Manchester United have had a fruitful transfer window so far.
Tom Heaton was the first player to arrive, touching down on a free transfer from Aston Villa where he’ll provide competition and cover for Dean Henderson and David De Gea.
Jadon Sancho then followed, joining from Borussia Dortmund for a huge £73million.
And United also have an agreement in principle for Raphael Varane, who is poised to undergo his medical today ahead of his move from Real Madrid.
At present, Manchester City are frontrunners for Kane.
But ESPN say United are monitoring the Tottenham star after he failed to show up for the start of pre-season training today.

After England went all the way to the final at Euro 2020, Kane was afforded some more time off.
But he has no plans to return to Tottenham as he looks to force away, believing he has an agreement in place with Daniel Levy over a potential departure.
United have spent the bulk of their transfer budget already, meaning any potential deal for Kane will have to be funded by getting players off the books.
Paul Pogba could leave, with the France international wanted by Paris Saint-Germain.
Diogo Dalot is wanted by AC Milan, while Daniel James and Jesse Lingard have been linked with Leeds and West Ham United respectively.

And United are thought to be open to offers for the likes of Andreas Pereira, Anthony Martial, Brandon Williams, Phil Jones and Alex Telles as well.
Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy would loathe to sell Kane to a domestic rival.
They’ve not done business for United since selling Dimitar Berbatov to the Red Devils in 2009, having originally intended to sell the striker to City instead.
Since then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team have tried to land the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld.
But they’ve failed each and every time, with Tottenham flatly refusing to let the quartet go.
Meanwhile, speaking in May, Kane opened up on potentially leaving Spurs behind and admitted now was the ‘right time’ to talk with Levy about his future.

“I think it’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club,” he said.
“I want to be playing in the biggest games, the biggest moments. This season I’m watching the Champions League, the English teams in there doing amazing, and they are the games I want to be involved in.
“So for sure it’s a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I’m at and have a good honest conversation with the chairman.
“I hope we can have that conversation. I’m sure he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it.
“But ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me in my career at this moment in time.”
Kane also admitted he didn’t want to have any regrets when he hangs up his boots at the end of his career.
The Tottenham talisman said: “I don’t want to come to the end of my career and have any regrets so I want to be the best I can be.
“I’m at that stage where you could say people might look at it as though he’s desperate for trophies, he needs trophies.
“I still feel like I’ve got almost another career to play. I’ve got seven, eight years … kind of what I’ve had so far in the Premier League. I’ve still got so much more to give.
“I’m not afraid to say I want to be the best. I’m not afraid to say I want to try and get on the level that Ronaldo and Messi got to.
“That’s my ultimate goal – to be winning trophies season in, season out; scoring 50, 60, 70 goals, season in, season out.”
