Manchester United turn attention to Tottenham talisman Harry Kane


Manchester United are working on a huge summer of transfer business.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side salvaged a place in next season's Champions League after securing a third-place finish in the Premier League.

That came on the final day of the season where their victory over Leicester City saw the Foxes fall into the Europa League spots for next term.

Expectations at Old Trafford are clearly higher than at the King Power Stadium, and that is why a top four finish was an absolute must.

But with the Red Devils looking to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table, the onus is on them to strengthen.

Several players have been linked with a move, but none more than Jadon Sancho.

While personal terms have been reportedly agreed, there's still some distance between Man United and Borussia Dortmund regarding the £110m transfer fee.

With a deal in doubt, United could look at other targets instead - one of whom is Harry Kane.


Luke Gardener of the Daily Express has claimed that the Tottenham star is being lined up alongside Jack Grealish and Donny Van de Beek.

Valued at £108million by Transfermarkt, the Spurs star faces an uncertain future due to the North London side's disappointing campaign.

Jose Mourinho managed to guide his team to a top six finish last term after a torrid season, but with Harry Kane holding aspirations of being one of the best in the world, he may look elsewhere.

It's not the first time that Manchester United have been linked with the England striker, nor will it be the last.

But it remains to be seen whether Solskjaer's side will be able to fund a deal to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford.


GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

The players being linked with Manchester United is bound to get fans very excited.

Jadon Sancho is undoubtedly the number one target this summer, and it's not hard to see why.

After scoring 20 goals and getting 20 assists last term, the starlet is surely the most exciting young player in world football.

But with Borussia Dortmund holding out for his true value, United are right to assess their options.


Harry Kane has been a long-term target for the Red Devils, and the chance to play in the Champions League will surely be something that's appealing for the striker.

Tottenham will clearly have hopes of reaching the top four this term, but with no guarantees it's natural that the 27-year-old assesses his options.

Kane is approaching the prime years of his career and it's time for him to look towards his own aspirations of winning trophies.
