Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is reportedly ‘relishing the opportunity to lock horns with Daniel Levy’ over a summer move for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane
Well informed about the recent speculations surrounding Kane’s uncertain future at Tottenham, Manchester United have rekindled their interest in the 26-year-old.
Ed Woodward is particularly interested in ‘locking horns with his Spurs counterpart’ to try to prove his negotiating skills and lure the England captain to Old Trafford, according to the Evening Standard.
United bigwig, who already tried to outplay Levy when he was trying to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as Jose Mourinho’s replacement, is now eager to return the favor and take Spurs’ talisman away from their clutches.

The Red Devils missed out one signing Erling Braut Haaland in the January transfer window, bringing in Odion Ighalo from China as a temporary solution.
But, if United end up securing the top-four finish in the Premier League and Tottenham fail to reach Champions League promotion, the three-time European champions could turn their attention towards Kane again.
Indeed, one of the most prolific goalscorers in England’s top-flight over the past few years could depart north London in the summer to boost his hopes of lifting a major silverware.
