Harry Kane opens up on Man Utd transfer interest after claims he 'had heart set on Old Trafford' before joining Bayern | The Sun

HARRY KANE has opened up on Manchester United's transfer interest after claims he "had his heart set on Old Trafford".

According to reports, Kane was keen to join the Red Devils, but a change of heart by Erik ten Hag led him to a Bayern Munich switch instead.

Kane, 30, had been Man United's key transfer target at the beginning of the summer.

But as the reality of what Tottenham would demand for him despite his contract status became clear, the Red Devils decided to pivot to Rasmus Hojlund instead.
