United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have to stump up £ m to sign the England captain (HARRY KANE’S STATS THIS SEASON)
(All Competitions) Appearances:
News of his receptivity towards a potential move to Old Trafford may serve to encourage Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to launch an audacious swoop for Kane.
Signing the England captain would certainly represent a statement of the club’s ambition, and the fact Kane would be interested leaves the path open for United.
Traditionally, United have a history of signing the continents leading talents and the England international is unquestionably one of the best central strikers in Europe.
Commercially, Kane’s capture would have potentially lucrative benefits for United given his position as England captain.
Kane recently hinted he could leave Spurs but they will only part with him for big money
But it is on the pitch where he would be most valuable; the prospect of Kane working alongside fellow English strike talent Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood is particularly exciting.
Tottenham’s £ million price could well prove a major stumbling block, indeed there is confidence at the north London club that no club will get close to their valuation during what is likely to be a subdued transfer window due to the coronavirus crisis.
But United are one of just a handful of teams who could finance a swoop for Kane, if they have the appetite to do so.
