Man United want to sign Harry Kane this summer with striker a ‘priority’

Manchester United are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer as he enters the final year of his deal.

United manager Erik ten Hag is keen to sign a new first-choice number nine following the abrupt departure of Cristiano Ronaldo late last year.

The Portugal legend slammed Ten Hag during an explosive interview with Piers Morgan. United terminated his contract via mutual consent days later, bringing his second spell as a United player to an end.

The club acted in January by signing Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley, although he’s not a long-term solution.

Anthony Martial, meanwhile, has scored three goals all season due to injury issues.

The Daily Mail claim United’s hierarchy are already exploring how to make a lucrative transfer for Kane happen. It’s claimed the 29-year-old would be open to a move to Old Trafford.

Kane’s contract with Spurs expires in 2024, although his decision to seek pastures new will depend on if they qualify for the Champions League.

Antonio Conte’s side are currently fifth in the table, five points behind Newcastle United in fourth. Spurs have only won one Premier League game since returning from the World Cup break as pressure continues to build on Conte.

Chairman Daniel Levy will reportedly want £85 million for Kane from an overseas buyer, with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid interested previously.

He’ll likely want more from a Premier League rival. Kane saw a transfer to Manchester City break down in 2021 after the reigning champions baulked at the inflated price tag
