Manchester United are reportedly favourites to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as per the report in German outlet Bild

The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from the north London club and Manchester City were tipped to be keen on signing the England international last summer. However, the deal didn’t materialize as the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was desperate to keep hold of their star forward. 

Meanwhile, the Englishman has been enduring a difficult season this term, scoring seven goals and assisting twice in 23 Premier League appearances. 

As per the report, the Citizens have shifted their attention from Harry Kane and have prioritised a move for Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Braut Haaland. 

Manchester United are reportedly preparing to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager and the Argentine boss is keen on reuniting with his old colleague at the Old Trafford stadium. 

Our View:

Signing Harry Kane will be a very good addition for Manchester United. With Edinson Cavani looking likely to leave the club at the end of this season, signing the 28-year-old will be an apt replacement for the Uruguayan forward. 

Pairing Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo up front will be a mouth-watering prospect for the Mancunians. However, it is highly unlikely that the new manager will start with two strikers. So, one will have to sit out on the bench and neither of them will be happy to do that. 

On the other hand, Spurs will demand a fee of over £100 million for their star man and break the bank for a 28-year-old who hasn’t had a great season this term, might not be a shrewd decision from the Red Devils hierarchy. 

Manchester United should sign a young forward who will be happy to learn under the tutelage of Cristiano Ronaldo in the first season and then take over the first-team spot in the following campaign.
