When Manchester United extended Edinson Cavani’s contract by 12 months earlier this year, it was largely accepted that a move for Tottenham forward Harry Kane was unrealistic.
The 28-year-old wants to leave his club this summer and has been continuously linked with a move to Manchester United over the years, although a move to Manchester City seems more likely this summer.
Kane, who starred for England at this summer’s European Championship, made headlines this summer when he failed to report in to training when he was expected to return from his holiday.
Now, former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has urged his former club to commit the required cash amid the uncertainty over the position in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

“I think Manchester United will need a centre-forward in the next 12 months, the guy (Kane) is available now if you pay £150 million,” he said on Sky Sports, via Football Daily, as seen above.
“They’ve got Martial, James, Mata, and Lingard, who I think to be fair, we could do without them at the club I think. I personally think Kane, coming in, would be a differentiator.”
Kane has three years remaining on his current contract at Tottenham and if Manchester City’s pursuit of the striker is anything to go by, a move in the final eight days of the window is highly unlikely.
Having already signed Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho for high transfer fees, it’s likely that further incomings at the club are dependant on others leaving.
