MANCHESTER UNITED could abandon their chase for Tottenham star Harry Kane in order to spend the money on an entire squad overhaul.
And the prospect of having to deal with Spurs supremo Daniel Levy is also putting off United bigwigs from making a move.
Kane is one of the hottest properties in world football and could cost as much as £150million to prise away from Tottenham.
That would eclipse the British transfer record fee of £89m United paid Juventus to bring back Paul Pogba in 2016.
His £200,000-a-week contract runs until the end of the 2023/24 season.
And while United DO have the funds to buy the 26-year-old, The Athletic reports that "the money could be better spent elsewhere and more widely distributed, given the rebuild ongoing".
Kane would undoubtedly improve what manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has in the attacking third.
Marcus Rashford is still on his learning curve, Anthony Martial is inconsistent and Odion Ighalo is seemingly a short-term fix.
