Thomas Tuchel makes Harry Kane transfer admission following Manchester United interest

The Dane has made a bright start to his United career and his withdrawal against Brighton on Saturday was met with boos from supporters inside Old Trafford, with the striker still easing his way to full fitness having missed a chunk of pre-season with a back injury.
Fate has paired Kane and Hojlund against each other in the Champions League, with Bayern Munich and United meeting on matchday one at the Allianz Arena. Kane spoke to the media the day before the game and was followed by Tuchel, who made it clear he felt Bayern had pulled off a coup by landing the striker.
