Man United have stepped up their pursuit of Harry Kane, as they look to make the final checks before weighing up a move for Tottenham Hotspur centre-forward this summer. A few days ago, Chelsea were believed to be frontrunners in the battle to sign England international.
However, it appears Man United are now set to splash the cash on Kane, who is reportedly unhappy with Spurs and their lack of success in domestic and European football. Harry, as a result, could be open to a summer switch, putting Man United and Chelsea on red alert.
Although Spurs have no intention of selling their prized asset, they could be forced to cash in this summer, given the fact that the 27-year-old striker’s deal in Tottenham expires in 2023. It bodes well for Red Devils, especially with the Norwegian manager keen on bolstering his options in the attacking department this summer.
Man United have recently extended Edinson Cavani’s contract to one more year, which suggests the club’s lack of trust in Anthony Martial. Linked with an exit from Man United, it won’t be surprising to see the Frenchman leaving the club, thus paving the way for the Red Devils to make room for the English centre-forward.
However, they should be wary of Blues interest, given the fact that Chelsea are in much better financial shape. It looks Roman Abramovich has been impressed with the progress the club has made under the German manager, who, in turn, is keen on securing the services of a top-class striker.
