Manchester United target Harry Kane says he is flattered by the interest shown in him, but, reiterates his desire to start the new season with Tottenham Hotspur.

Harry Kane has been in sensational form for Tottenham in the 2014-15 season and is reportedly subject of interest from Manchester United who are set to launch a 40 million pound bid for the England striker.

Tottenham, however, will not sell Harry Kane to Manchester United even if the English giants make a major bid, according to reports in ESPN FC.

And the Tottenham fans will be happy to know that while the player is happy to know “big clubs” are interested in him, he wants to stay at the club.

Kane said: “I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs.”

“I have seen there is interest but that’s all I know. It is flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested.”

Harry Kane is currently away with England Under 21 for the European Under 21 championship where the Young Lions lost their opening game 1-0 to Portugal.

Following the departure of Radamel Falcao back to Monaco with Manchester United taking the decision not to sign the forward following a poor season on loan, the club have been looking to sign a forward.

While Harry Kane has recently expressed his desire to become a club legend at Tottenham Hotspur, signing a new five year deal till 2020 with the club, it has not stopped Manchester United from pursuing the player with reports stating that Ed Woodward, the executive vice chairman of Manchester United keen to negotiate with Daniel Levy for the player.

Manchester United certainly do have a lot of funds with them following record 159 Euro profits, as reported by Delloite and the club have planned a 200 million pound spending spree according to reports.

It looks quite unlikely that Manchester United will meet the valuation of Harry Kane as Tottenham place exorbitant price tag on the player with both parties keen to continue their association.
