Manchester United are reportedly considering a sensational move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
According to a report from Fichajes, Manchester United have joined in the race to sign the England captain, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich also interested in him.
Harry Kane’s contract ends in 2024 and the club is yet to be able to convince him down to an extension. Spurs had held preliminary talks with the striker earlier this year, but no further talks have taken place since. And according to an earlier report, they are not in a hurry to strike a new deal despite being concerned about Bayern’s advances.
According to Fichajes, Manchester United have identified Harry Kane as an ‘important’ option to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and that the ‘English striker is one of the great wishes’ of the people at Old Trafford.
Offloading Ronaldo, who is clearly in a slump and is unable to reach the heights he once did, and replacing him with Kane, who is still in his prime, would be wise business for Manchester United.
However, with strong interest from Chelsea and Bayern Munich as well, Kane will have a decision to make if he decides to leave Spurs. He might not wish to jeopardise his legacy at the club by joining their London rivals Chelsea but will be open to a move to Manchester as he was last summer.
And if he decides to take on a challenge in another country then all roads lead to Bayern Munich who reportedly want him as early as January. He’d be the perfect replacement for Lewandowski who left Bayern for Barcelona in the summer. It will be interesting to see how this Kane saga plays out.
