Manchester United are weighing up a summer pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane after conceding defeat in the race to sign Erling Haaland. The Borussia Dortmund sensation looks set to opt for a move to United’s bitter rivals Manchester City, which could prompt a reaction.
United have been amongst the European heavyweights linked with triggering Haaland’s £64million Dortmund release clause this summer.
But reports claim Man City have a deal in place to welcome the prolific 21-year-old at the Etihad Stadium next season.
United are already trailing behind the Premier League champions after a changing of the tides in Manchester over the last decade.
So Haaland’s Man City arrival could spark a response, with the Red Devils looking for a new striker themselves in the upcoming transfer window.
And according to the Mirror, Kane has been identified as a potential target as the club enters its first transfer window since Ed Woodward’s turbulent spell as chief executive ended.
United will be without Edinson Cavani next season, with the Uruguayan’s contract expiring in June.
Cristiano Ronaldo is now 37, and his excessive workload has started to show, scoring just twice in 12 games before his sensational hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
And the Old Trafford legend’s future at United isn’t completely clear either, with the club’s Champions League hopes hanging in the balance.
