Transfer News: Manchester United contact Tottenham for Harry Winks
The 25-year-old midfielder is a product of the Tottenham youth academy and made his debut as early as 2014, when he was just 18 years old. However, it was only after 2016 that he became a regular fixture in the first-team and has managed 173 appearances till date, in which he has four goals and assists apiece. (h/t Transfermarkt)
However, Winks endured a difficult 2020/21 season during which he fell out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho. Indeed, the 25-year-old England international managed just nine Premier league starts over the course of the campaign, with two of those coming after Mourinho was sacked in April earlier this year.
And, it seems like despite his decline in stature at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the past year, Winks still has fans in the Premier League in the form of Manchester United. The report claims that the Red Devils’ officials are huge admirers of the England international and are keen on wrapping up a deal for him in the summer.
To that end, Manchester United are already said to have opened talks with Tottenham over a move for Winks. It is claimed that even though Spurs do not have a manager currently, they seem receptive to offers and would be willing to sell for a fee of £25m.

Winks still has three years left on his contract with Tottenham and it is hard to see Daniel Levy sanction an exit for such a low sum, especially to a direct rival. But, hey, as long as it’s not the other Harry [Kane] that is joining the Red Devils, all good.
