Manchester United are keen to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane at a time when Bayern Munich are hesitant to spend big money on the player.
The England captain has become the subject of intense transfer speculation amid suggestions he could leave Spurs in the summer.
Kane’s contract expires at the end of next season and the deal is believed to be a way off as Tottenham look to extend his contract.
The Red Devils, who are in need of a centre-forward, are monitoring the forward’s situation and plotting a move.
However, reports suggest that Bayern Munich will challenge United for the signature of the Spurs talisman.
However, it looks like Tottenham are expecting a fee from the Bavarian giants.
“I don’t deny it, but can we afford such a transfer and do we need such a transfer?” Bayern’s chief financial officer, Dr. Michael Diedrich, reflected when asked if his club would spend €100m on the player.

Kane is unlikely to move for less than €100m, leaving Bayern out of the running for the goalscorer.
And while there may be other interested parties, Manchester United certainly seem the most obvious destination for Harry Kane.
Of course, there is still a chance the striker could stay with the Lilywhites beyond the summer.
In fact, he can see his contract and leave on a free transfer in 2024, at which time he will definitely have a choice of clubs.
