Manchester United are starting to create a pattern with respect to the Mason Mount and Harry Kane deals so far in this transfer window.

It was revealed at the end of May that Manchester United‘s three main transfer targets for Erik ten Hag this window were Harry Kane, Mason Mount, and Declan Rice.

So far this summer, United are yet to sign any of the three players but have held talks with both Tottenham and Chelsea for Kane and Mount respectively.

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly slapped a £100 million price tag on Kane and further stated that he will not sell the striker to a rival English team, even though Kane only had one year left on his current contract and is unlikely to sign a new one.

United’s talks with Chelsea for Mount have accumulated three bids for the player, with the final and highest bid being £50m with a further £5m in add-ons, which Chelsea rejected – asking for a £65 million total package.

With both deals, however, there has been a common theme – despite United ultimately ending active interest in both players, the club have not closed the door.

United are said to be determined not to be fleeced for cash this window as Erik ten Hag’s budget is limited prior to player sales – reports in the last few weeks have stated that United have left negotiations explaining that they are still willing to talk if the prices are lowered.

It was claimed earlier this week that United are willing to negotiate with Tottenham if Kane’s price is lowered to £80m, and the club have also left the £50+5m bid for Mount on the table should Chelsea decide to reconsider.

It’s a risky game, but the club will no doubt be hoping it pays off.
