The coronavirus reality is reportedly biting at Manchester United with the club's transfer plans taken back to the drawing board.
According to The Guardian, weeks without football and a likely return to the pitch behind closed doors is taking its toll on their summer prospects.
It is claimed a regular season would see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be given the cash to secure an elite centre-forward, such as £150million-rated Kane.
But the abnormal circumstances surrounding the coming transfer market could set that deal off course.
Darren Fletcher is set to return to Manchester United in an ambassadorial role as he joining old team-mates Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Michael Carrick.
The former Old Trafford midfielder was pictured in a United training top recently as he thanked the National Health Service for their work amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But according to Manchester Evening News, Fletcher will not be returning to the club in a coaching role, instead acting as an ambassador.
It is understood the 36-year-old attended a series of meeting at Old Trafford, discussing plans for an overall restructure.
United bosses are said to have searched for employees who can “buy into the culture” of the club, with Fletcher, who spent 12 years at Old Trafford, deemed a perfect recruit.
OFF SCOTT FREE
Scott McTominay is the quickest Manchester United player over 5km.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's competitive squad have been trying to record the fastest time over that distance during the lockdown.
And Scotland midfielder McTominay has shown he has the speed and stamina in the engine room by coming out on top.
McTominay's team-mate Dan James revealed: “A lot of the boys are going outside, doing runs and sending them in. It's a competition to get the best 5k time.
”It's been good, nice and competitive still.
“Scott is winning at the moment and I don't think anyone is going to top it.”
Paul Pogba says he dreams of playing football every day after the crisis is over.
The United midfielder shared a picture of himself playing for France with the caption on the picture in French, describing his dream to play again, after so long out with injury for the Red Devils.

RAISING THE MARC
Marcus Rashford has shed light on how he raised £20million for charity during lockdown.
The lovable striker, 22, has been one of football’s bright sparks since the coronavirus pandemic took hold, holding FaceTime calls with fans and offering medics Old Trafford tickets on social media, as well as raising cash for great causes.
He told the UTD Podcast: “Yeah, it’s done a lot better than what we thought.
He said: “It was a slow process at first and we set out to try and get to £100,000.
“A couple of days passed and we were way past that. A week passed, and the numbers just kept getting higher and higher.
“It got to the stage where we had a lot of donations, more than we expected, and we were actually struggling to deliver the food to people.
“So that’s where the bigger companies like Tesco, Co-op, Asda have come in and helped us with deliveries and that side of things, and their own large donations as well. It’s definitely a big positive.”
WHAT A GUY!
