At the start of the summer, we were already pissed off with transfer bullshit when reports emerged that Man United were trying to tie up a £45 million deal for Harry Kane. No chance we thought. United already had Rooney, Van Persie and Falcao (if they wanted him).
Anyway, even in the batshit crazy world of Premier League transfers, there's no way one good season is worth £45 million.
The summer went on. Falcao left, Van Persie left and all of a sudden, Louis van Gaal was starting the season with Rooney as the only striker in his squad that he trusts. Javier Hernandez and young James Wilson may still be there but it seems clear that the United manager has no intentions of trusting either of those to lead the line anytime soon.
Pedro was suggested as an addition to the front three that would take the burden of goalscoring off Rooney but now that's looking less likely, we've gone full circle and we're back to those Harry Kane rumours.
The Mirror are today reporting that 'discrete enquiries' have been made and that a bid from Old Trafford is ready to be sent officially as soon as they get 'any encouragement' from White Hart Lane.
With Spurs short on striking options themselves, it would surely take an incredible amount of money for them to sell. However, with time ticking away on the transfer window and Louis Van Gaal eager to add to his attacking options, we'll admit that this is looking a lot more likely than we thought it was at the start of the summer.
Having said that, even if we're not calling bullshit anymore, Daniel Levy would surely be looking for way too much money for it to actually happen.
