Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag has made Harry Kane his top target
The next part of the process could be to sign an elite striker and speaking to Givemesport, Crook believes United could land Kane, who is the manager’s top target.
He said: “Levy has done business with United in the past with Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick. I think there’s every chance that could happen. Certainly, ten Hag has made him his top target.”
United have put themselves in pole position to qualify for the Champions League and it is only a matter of time before their top-four spot in the table is confirmed.
Ten Hag will want to strengthen his squad further during the summer and the top priority should be a striker, considering Anthony Martial’s injury issues this season.
Marcus Rashford has been in exemplary form with 29 goals but the Englishman fares best from the left wing.
United definitely need a marquee striker to lead the line next season and Kane would be a fantastic addition to the squad during the summer transfer window.
The 29-year-old has netted 27 goals in the current campaign. If United were to sign him, they could become realistic contenders for the Premier League title.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be reluctant to sell Kane to a direct league rival but with his contract expiring next summer, he may have no choice but to do so.
Nonetheless, United may have to shatter their transfer record to land the world-class star. Spurs may not consider his departure for less than £100 million.
Kane has yet to make a decision over his future at Spurs but could contemplate leaving them after another trophyless season and a likely finish outside of the top four.
