Man Utd are being linked with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane but reportedly need something to happen to make a move.
Manchester United will only make a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker Harry Kane if he makes it clear he wants to move to the club, according to reports.
Despite the form of on-loan striker Odion Ighalo, United are still hoping to reinforce their attacking ranks in the summer after opting against signing teenage sensation Erling Braut Haaland in January.
Plenty of names have been linked such as Lyon’s Moussa Dembele and Inter’s Lautaro Martinez and the latest is England captain Kane.
Kane is among the Premier League’s most prolific scorers over the last five seasons and has always been loyal to Spurs, who he joined as a child, whenever interest has been registered from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The 26-year-old signed a new six-year deal in 2018 which runs until 2024 but, according to The Athletic, via the Metro, he is now considering his future at the club following Spurs’ downfall since sacking Mauricio Pochettino and looking unlikely to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
It’s reported that United were recently asked if they would be willing to buy Kane and while they would jump at the chance, they will only do so if Kane is desperate to make the move due to the troubled negotiations between the two clubs in the past.
It’s claimed that any deal would cost at least £150million and would require Spurs to allow their best player to join a Premier League rival.
