The reason why ‘Cristiano Ronaldo money’ prevented Man Utd from signing Harry Kane from Tottenham

Manchester United would have had to pay “Cristiano Ronaldo money” to sign Harry Kane, it has been claimed.

Even though Bayern Munich lost their German championship match last weekend, 5-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt, Kane has adapted to life in Bavaria well after moving there for £86 million this summer from Tottenham.

With 22 goals already this season for his new club and four for his nation, the attacker is expected to have his most productive season to date.

The England captain will visit Old Trafford on Tuesday to face Erik ten Hag’s unfortunate United team. A victory would guarantee European football for the upcoming season.

Depending on the result of the remaining group game, they will either advance to the Champions League or Europa League knockout round with three points versus the group winners.

Given that United had been reportedly interested in the striker this summer, Kane might have easily been playing for the Old Trafford team rather than Bayern on Tuesday night.

But in order to get Kane’s signature, United would have needed to pay “Cristiano Ronalddo money,” or salaries, according to the Mail Online.

According to reports, Kane makes £500,000 a year at Munich, plus a signing-on incentive.

According to reports, United thought it was a lot of money for a player who would have little value as a resale when his contract expired and who turned 30 in the summer.

In turn, the decision is said to have been made early in the summer window to kill their interest, and the possibility of a bid for Kane was never revisited.

Bayern wins and United loses. In addition to his 22 goals, Kane has seven assists in 19 games, meaning he is already making a significant return on Bayern’s investment.

Rasmus Hojlund, a teenage striker who cost United £72 million, has not yet netted a Premier League goal in 12 games, therefore the deal has not gone as expected.

But in five Champions League games, the Dane has managed five goals. He will be looking to increase that total against Kane and Bayern on United’s big matchup.
