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.
