Tottenham Hotspur have absolutely no intention of selling Harry Kane this summer and have not quoted Manchester United a price for the striker, sources have told ESPN FC.
Reports in the UK media claim United boss Jose Mourinho has told the club to sign Kane and figures of £100 million and £200m have been mentioned for the forward, who captained England this month.
But sources close to Spurs are bemused by the speculation and insist that Kane does not have a price-tag because the club would not even consider discussions about selling their star player.
The 23-year-old has won the Premier League Golden Boot for the last two seasons, establishing himself as one of the best strikers in Europe under Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

In December, Kane signed a new five-and-a-half year deal until 2022, making him the club’s top earner, and he has previously said he would like to stay at Tottenham, where he came through the academy, for the rest of his career.
Kane’s Spurs and England teammate Eric Dier is wanted by United, a source close to the player has told ESPN FC, but similarly Spurs have no intention of selling the versatile former Sporting Lisbon player.
Meanwhile, Spurs legend David Ginola has said Kane should stay at the club but does not think £100m is an unreasonable price-tag.
“Harry Kane should stay at Spurs,” Ginola told talkSPORT. “Spurs need Harry Kane to stay if they are to win the Premier League next season. That’s very important. Tottenham had a great season and finished runners-up last year.
“If [Romelu] Lukaku would cost around £100m, I think it would be similar for Kane, in the same region of money.
“Some years ago we were talking about player value — remember when Gareth Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid for £90-odd million, and that was massive — but now you have a few players worth this kind of money.
“When you think about strikers who can regularly score 20-25 league goals per season, you need to put the money on the table.”
