Manchester United have stepped-up their pursuit of Harry Kane after making discrete enquiries over the Tottenham Hotspur strikers availability this summer, according to the Mirror.

Louis van Gaal has already been extremely busy in the transfer market this summer with five new signings arriving so far but the Dutchman is expected to further strengthen his squad before the window slams shut.

United are extremely short of strikers after selling Robin van Persie to Fenerbache and rejecting the chance to make Radamel Falcao’s loan move permanent so I think it’s safe to assume van Gaal will bring in at least one new forward over the coming weeks.

Several names have been linked with a move to Old Trafford but it appears United have now stepped-up their interest in Harry Kane with the Mirror claiming today they’ve made discrete enquiries over the strikers availability.

No formal offer has been put forward as yet and Tottenham are expected to do all they can to hang on to the 22-year-old, but the newspaper suggests that United are ready to make their move if they’re given any encouragement a deal could be done.

Kane shot to prominence last season after scoring an incredible 31 goals to help Spurs to a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League and he also broke into Roy Hodgson’s senior England team set-up.

Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to keep hold of the youngster as he already has a shortage of strikers himself at White Hart Lane with Emmanuel Adebayor out of favour and Roberto Soldado tipped to head back to Spain.

That doesn’t appear to have deterred United though and Kane would obviously be an excellent signing if they could somehow pull it off, but Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy is a shrewd negotiator, so the Red Devils would have to offer BIG money if they want to prise Kane away this summer.

    Why sign for a club with a team in no way better than Spurs? In a year or two he can sign for a really big international club like Real if he continues to score. There is not one ManU player but DeGea that interests bigger clubs with truly great teams, but several Spurs players. 🙂

    Didn’t read it.
    Don’t care.
    Spurs not interested in selling.
    Kane not interested in going.
    Kane can quite happily stay at Spurs for another five years. By which time the stadium will be a couple of years built, allowing Spurs to be more competitive on salary (and he’s hardly going to be skint now), see how well the exciting young team and head coach develop, and see the youth developing (and no-one will know just how promising Spurs academy is right now than him). He is desperate to win things at Spurs and if they are close to/looking like they can match his ambitions. If so, who knows how long he will stay. If not, well if he has continued to improve he will only just be reaching his peak and can go to Real Madrid for much more than United are offering now.

    Those who think loyalty isn’t important are underestimating. They are also underestimating that Spurs are an exceptionally well club now. They don’t really need the money – and have the recent sale of Bale to remind them that the money isn’t compensation if it isn’t spent well. The only reason they sold Carrick, Berbatov, Modric and Bale is because they really wanted to move and, in some cases, were prepared to kick up to get it. They were also older than Kane and had no previous attachment to the club. On top of which, Levy has absolutely never forgiven United for the way they behaved over the enforced Berbatov sale.

    So, United offering £40 million – LoL. Qasting everyone’s time. And who says United have to be the only potential buyers, anyway? If Spurs were forced to sell him, they can have an auction!
