have reportedly ended their pursuit of with the striker now very happy to stay at Tottenham.

The England captain pushed for a move away from north last summer, coming close to joining before staying with the Lilywhites.

United had previously held strong interest in signing Kane, but according to , the Red Devils have given up on the transfer, largely because the 28-year-old is now very content at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The reports say that qualifying for next season’s Champions League and the commitment from manager Antonio Conte has convinced Kane to stick with Spurs.

After a terrible start to the season under Nuno Espirito Santo, Kane’s form was resuscitated under Conte, and it is said that the two have a very good relationship.

Kane ended the season with 17 goals and nine assists and could become Spurs’ all-time top goal scorer next season, with the striker now just 18 goals behind the legendary Jimmy Greaves

Conte’s great start to life at Spurs has given fans hope that the club’s long-wait for silverware could be over soon and the Italian has reportedly been given a summer transfer budget of £150million, with Daniel Levy keen to back his manager as much as possible.

United meanwhile, are exploring a number of forward options as new boss Erik ten Hag looks to reshape the Red Devils following an awful 2021/22 campaign.

Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez is one option but it remains to be seen whether United are willing to pay the £60m that Benfica want for the 22-year-old.

Through Jorge Mendes, Nunez shares an agent with current United players Cristiano Ronaldo and David de Gea, and this factor could convince the striker to choose Old Trafford with Arsenal and Atletico Madrid also linked.
