With Champions League qualification on the line, Manchester United are looking to bolster their squad this summer. They are planning to sign two frontline strikers. Tottenham ace Harry Kane is one of them.
However, signing Kane won’t be easy. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is “insistent” on signing him.
On April 24 (ET), British football publication 90min reported that “Manchester United are considering signing two new center forwards this summer. However, it is unlikely to be Harry Kane.메이저놀이터
United have scored just 36 goals in 52 games this season. That’s the second lowest in the top half of the league. United manager Eric ten Hagg was also critical of United’s lack of offense in his post-match interview. Last weekend, the Red Devils won a tight 1-0 game against Bournemouth. It’s one of the Red Devils’ invisible Achilles’ heels.
Harry Kane is still better than he was when he was United’s No. 0 signing. Kane has scored 28 goals this season. While Spurs have had their fair share of twists and turns this season, including the resignation of Antonio Conte, Kane has been 100 percent.
Kane still has one year left on his Tottenham contract. Until the summer of 2024. That means this summer is a prime transfer window. However, Spurs are hoping to re-sign him.
As the outlet notes, “Daniel Levy has been a very tough negotiator for the club ever since he signed Dimitar Berbatov. There is no great confidence that they will be able to secure Kane through negotiations with Levy.
There are a lot of teams chasing Kane. Not only United but also Bayern Munich want him. Already two years ago, Manchester City made a £100 million bid for the player, which Tottenham ultimately rejected. Chairman Daniel Levy was adamant.
Recently, local media reported that “Tottenham have set a transfer fee of more than £100 million for Harry Kane. Around £150 million, to be precise.
However, Tottenham still insist that Kane is off the market. In recent days, Tottenham have been pushing for the appointment of Arne Slott. Kane and Levy have reportedly met recently to discuss the future of the club under Slott.
