Man United following Kane situation, player thoughtful of Reds move: report

A potential Man United move for Harry Kane seems to be picking up in pace…

Manchester United Football Club may well be in the market for a striker this summer. I guess it all depends on Edinson Cavani’s situation, though if I had to guess right now, I believe he’ll be leaving Old Trafford.

For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, those are some pretty big shoes to fill. That’s where Harry Kane comes into the mix.

According to Dagbladet, United are ‘closely’ following the world-class 27-year-old’s situation. Understandably, the forward is ‘high’ on United’s priority list.

What’s interesting from this report is that Kane himself is ‘thoughtful’ about the idea of a Reds move. However, the potential stumbling block could be the transfer fee, with Daniel Levy requiring a bid of at least £125million to sell his star striker.

Obviously, Tottenham Hotspur would love to keep ahold of Kane. However, their lack of trophies coupled with the constant change of manager has the Englishman at least thinking about moving elsewhere.

If he wants to stay in England, there’s probably only two, maybe three clubs who can afford him; United, City and Chelsea. The latter signed Timo Werner last summer, while both Manchester clubs could well be looking to sign a striker when the window opens.

I’d like to think that the groundwork is already being laid by the powers-that-be. If there’s even a sliver of hope that United can get Kane this summer, they have to do all they can to make that a realistic possibility. Players like him don’t come around very often, while that addition would instantly have us challenging for major honours in the 2021/22 term.

Would Man Utd signing Harry Kane make them instant title contenders? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
