Man United are weighing up the possibility of moving for Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane.
This season hasn’t quite gone according to plan for Manchester United.
As things stand, a place in the top four is looking increasingly difficult, while winning the Champions League is also a long-shot.
Weirdly, the Reds’ problem of late has been scoring goals. A 0-0 draw at home to Watford, despite being dominant, sticks in my mind.
No doubt Ralf Rangnick has also identified that as the major issue. Even if he’s not manager, there’s every chance he’ll be involved in the squad overhaul.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani are ageing, thus, there’s a good chance we sign a striker this summer. Enter, Harry Kane.
A claim from yesterday’s Mirror suggests that United are ‘considering’ making a fresh approach for the prolific striker this summer. It’s added it could also mean a potential reunion between Kane and his former manager, Mauricio Pochettino…
Apparently, United are watching the Kane developments closely. Manchester City pushed to sign the Englishman last summer, but the article claims they’re now focused on Erling Haaland instead, thus, potentially giving us a free run at signing the Spurs talisman.
Kane, who is 29 this summer, has a couple of years left on his current deal. With Daniel Levy being the shrewd businessman he is, he will know that this is likely to be the last possible opportunity to rake in maximum value for Kane in terms of a transfer fee.
It does feel like Kane is ready to move away from Spurs, in order to try and win major trophies before he enters the twilight of his career. There’s also no doubt moving to United would be a big platform for Kane on a personal level.
This would be a mega-money move if United can somehow make it happen. However, it would give the club one less position to worry about for the next few years if they could somehow pull it off.
