Manchester United decide against pursuing Tottenham superstar – report

When Edinson Cavani signed a one-year extension to his contract at Manchester United, it was largely accepted that the club had put their search for a striker on hold for a year. As revealed by Stretty News, signing a striker this summer was considered a priority before the Uruguay international committed to an extended stay.

But these plans were scuppered after Cavani’s contract extension, meaning that signing a striker this summer is unlikely but will soon be on the agenda again.

Daily Express now also claims that Manchester United have decided against pursuing a deal to sign Harry Kane this summer, with Ole Gunnar Soskjaer’s side focusing on other targets instead.

The report claims that a swap-deal involving Kane moving to Manchester United has been branded as ‘nonsense’ and that the Old Trafford club has instead set its sights on a centre-back and a midfielder, despite Kane’s desire to leave Tottenham.

  1. As Manchester United seem to have decided against signing Kane this season, why is Manchester City not pursuing him.
    Manchester City should have no problem funding the purchase since the owners are deep-pocketed.
    So it all looks like a hoax that Kane is to be sold by the club, especially as his contract still has two or three years to run.

  2. We cant go on with the misfiring MARTIAL and rely on CAVANI and RASHFORD,shirt sales alone would pay the fee for KANE,its a mystery why cITY havent come in for him, but wouldnt be surprised if they sign him in the end.If UTD want another PREM or Champs league. Harry is that man !

  3. Go for Harry Kane,my beloved Man Utd! Martial,Lingard or even Pogba,must go! I guess my team can easily bring the best out of this striker!
