Harry Kane 'set to snub Man Utd transfer and stay at Tottenham' after decision to hire Erik ten Hag

MANCHESTER UNITED'S decision to appoint Erik ten Hag over Mauricio Pochettino looks to have cost them the chance to sign Harry Kane.

Kane blossomed at Tottenham under Poch and it was thought that the PSG boss could tempt the England striker to join him at Old Trafford.



But United's hopes of recruiting Kane have been dashed after they opted to appoint Ten Hag over Poch, according to The Mirror.

Poch had been favourite to land the United job but was leapfrogged by Ten Hag after failing to bring the Champions League trophy to Paris.

And it's been reported that Ten Hag has a verbal agreement in place with the Red Devils to take the reins from Ralf Rangnick this summer on a four-year-deal.

But it's been made clear that Kane won't be joining the Dutchman's revolution at Old Trafford.

The hot-shot striker now seems set to stay with Spurs where he's been revitalised under Antonio Conte.

Under the Italian's guidance, a revamped Kane's goals have helped fire Spurs into pole position to clinch the final Champions League spot.

His decision to stay at White Hart Lane will be a huge blow to Ten Hag who reportedly had put Kane at the top of his transfer target list.

The Dutchman's arrival at Old Trafford could also cause a stir amongst the club's players who allegedly preferred Poch to become manager.

But their views were overlooked by United's board who didn't even consult the squad about appointing Ten Hag.

The Ajax head coach will hope West Ham ace Declan Rice doesn't follow his England pal Kane's footsteps.

Rice is also on Ten Hag's wishlist along with Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn.
