Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is open to a move to Manchester United in the summer.
Well respected journalist Miguel Delaney has claimed that Manchester United are interested in Kane, and that the 200,000-a-week England striker himself is open to the idea of joining the Reds.
Writing in his Reading the Game newsletter for The Independent, January 20 edition, Delaney wrote: “It is well known that Manchester United will go big for a forward in the summer but the growing question is who.
“Erik ten Hag would favour pace, such as Victor Osimhen, but the player’s contract and Napoli’s canniness could make that an extraordinarily difficult deal to do.
“That is the sort of thing that is usually said about Tottenham Hotspur, but the growing feeling is that may not be the case with Harry Kane this summer.
“It will be two years since his attempt to go to Manchester City and Spurs’ hand won’t be as strong due to the fact he will only have two years left on his contract.
“They may not be as strong in terms of the profile of the club, either, with so much dependent on whether they win a trophy this season or get back into the Champions League.
“If ever there was a time to sell, with Kane 30 in the summer and just a year until he can go for free, it might be then.
“He would be open to a move to a resurgent United, and they would obviously investigate it again. They’ve had strong interest before.
“There has already been talk of how he could become another Robin van Persie figure in being obsessed with finally winning club silverware.”
A week ago, ESPN reported that United had three main targets for a striker in the summer – including Kane. The others were Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko.
The plan for January was to sign a short-term striker on loan, which they achieved by getting Wout Weghorst in until the end of the season.
Kane’s current deal at Tottenham expires in 2024, so Spurs might come under pressure to let him go this year unless their captain is willing to agree fresh terms with the London club.
