Man United are said to have ruled against making a summer deal for England captain Harry Kane, instead opting to compete for Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund in 2022.

Harry has hinted that he wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer and that he and owner Daniel Levy will discuss his long-term future over the off-season.

Although United would love to have him, Spurs value their striker at nearly £150 million, which would easily make Kane the British transfer record holder at a time when United is experiencing financial difficulties.

Since the outbreak, United has lost roughly £150 million in revenue, and it is unclear whether clubs will be able to welcome fans back to packed stadiums next season.

Solskjaer wants to sign Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, but the cost of doing so would eat up the majority of the club’s summer budget, leaving little room for a move for Harry.

According to the Daily Mail, United will drop their interest in the Spurs midfielder and instead try to sign Erling in 2022.

BVB value the 20-year-old Norwegian as the highest scorer in the UEFA Champions League this season, with a valuation of roughly £130 million.

However, a clause in his contract with the German club allows him to leave for around £62 million in 2022, and United will compete with Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Barcelona for his signature.
