Manchester United have identified Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as their top priority for the summer transfer window, according to The Guardian.
The Red Devils are expected to invest on a marquee centre-forward this summer and they have already been linked with numerous high-profile names.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is one of those on their radar but The Guardian claim that Kane is the main priority for the club at the end of the campaign.
Man Utd must avoid prolonged saga over Kane
Kane has had another fabulous season in north London. He has contributed an impressive 29 goals and five assists from just 47 appearances for Spurs.
The England captain will turn 30 before next season but he has shown no signs of slowing down. Kane could be a leading star for another five years at least.
Hence, he would be a superb piece of business for the Red Devils but the big question is whether they can convince Spurs chairman Daniel Levy into a deal.
Kane will enter the final year of his Spurs contract in July and there are suggestions that Spurs could sanction his sale for a fee in the region of £100 million.
However, knowing Levy over the years, he is likely to push for the striker to move abroad if he does not renew. Bayern Munich could be a potential destination.
In our opinion, United must avoid a prolonged saga for Kane this summer. They should have a firm stance and move on, suppose Levy starts to play games with them.
Erik ten Hag obviously values the rich Premier League experience and proven-scoring record of Kane but United can’t wait until August for Spurs to make a decision.
