Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward excited about the possibility of meeting Spurs chairman Daniel Levy over a potential deal for Harry Kane, battling wits with a man generally accepted to be one of football's shrewdest negotiators.
The Englishman, who is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, has been tipped to consider his future at Spurs at the end of the season if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, with a lack of silverware bothering him.
If Kane does decide to leave, United won't be far away. The Evening Standard report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan of the Englishman, and Woodward would have no problem with trying to get the deal done.
The main stumbling block in negotiations is Levy, who has earned a reputation as a less-than-hospitable negotiator.
Levy is not afraid to demand big money for any of his players, and he's always prepared to hold firm and stick to his guns, even if he is the only person on the entire planet who thinks that is the right move.
