According to reports, Manchester United have made contact with Harry Kane’s representatives and are optimistic about the possibility of a summer move. Kane has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time, and with his contract set to expire next year, this summer could be the perfect opportunity for the striker to make the switch.
Despite interest from Bayern Munich, Kane is likely to want to remain in the Premier League as he looks to break Alan Shearer’s all-time scoring record. United are hopeful that Spurs will drop their £100m asking price if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Tottenham’s loss to Wolves on Saturday means that they will drop out of the top four on goal difference if fifth-placed Liverpool win their game in hand. Spurs are desperate for Kane to sign a new deal, but they could be forced to listen to offers if he announces his intention to leave at the end of the season.
Kane has long spoken about his desire to win trophies, and with Spurs unlikely to land any silverware again this term, he may decide to finally leave north London. Manchester City tried to sign Kane four times in the summer of 2021, but Tottenham refused to sell the England captain, who has since become the club’s all-time record goalscorer.
Former United defender Rio Ferdinand has told Kane he has to leave Tottenham if he wants to win trophies, while Louis Saha has predicted that the 29-year-old will end up signing for the Red Devils. Ex-Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has also commented on Kane’s situation, stating that he looked low after the FA Cup exit to Championship side Sheffield United. Redknapp believes that Kane may be having doubts about his future at Tottenham, especially after the club keeps getting knocked out of competitions.
It remains to be seen whether Kane will make the move to Old Trafford this summer, but United fans will be hopeful that the club can secure his signature. With Kane’s contract set to expire next year and Spurs potentially willing to listen to offers, this could be the perfect opportunity for United to land one of the best strikers in world football.
