Manchester United may make a move for Harry Kane if his former manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is appointed.
According to ESPN, the transfer is a possibility, but it would cost in the region of £100 million, with wages of around £350,000 per week. Manchester United are likely to be looking for a striker, with Edinson Cavani’s contract expiring and Cristiano Ronaldo failing to live up to expectations. With Anthony Martial also out on loan, the striker options are limited.
Kane has been heavily linked with a move away in recent years, but Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has remained firm and demanded a hefty fee for the Englishman. With each passing year, Kane’s contract comes closer to expiration, so you’d think the Tottenham hierarchy would concede defeat and cash in on their prized asset.
In comparison to previous seasons, Tottenham’s captain has struggled in front of goal this season. He is averaging 0.33 league goals per 90 minutes this season, compared to 0.67 the previous year. He did not score a Premier League goal until October, with many football fans attributing this to his disappointment at not being able to complete a transfer before the season began.
His scoring form has improved in recent weeks, with five goals in his last six games, including a last-second winner against Manchester City.
