Solskjaer aware of Kane’s qualities ahead of Spurs v United encounter

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Harry Kane as one of the best strikers in Europe and is wary of his understanding with Son Heung-min.

The potent Spurs duo both scored twice in Tottenham’s 6-1 thrashing of United at Old Trafford in October.

On top of that, United have always been linked with a move for Kane, whose Spurs future is in doubt again. The England international is presumably getting tired of not only missing out of trophy success but also probably Jose Mourinho’s ways.

United are not expecting to receive encouragement over a possible move for Kane because Tottenham won’t want to lose him to another Premier League club. There’s also the existing problem that Kane still has three years left on his contract, so Daniel Levy is not going to be bullied into selling the player.

The 27-year-old is expected to make a decision on his future after the Euros in the summer, but this is what Solskjaer had to say about the situation after Friday’s pre-match press conference.

“When you’re playing against one of the best centre forwards in European football, of course it’s something that we prepare for.

“I think every team when they play Tottenham or England, you know Harry Kane’s qualities.

“But we prepare the defenders for every single opponent. The season that Son and Kane have had, their relationship is one of Tottenham’s strengths and they have other quality players we have to be aware of.”

The Athletic report that Kane is running out of patience at Spurs, amid a desire to win trophies. It’s claimed United and City could view the England captain as an Erling Haaland alternative – but he won’t be prised away from Tottenham on the cheap.
