Manchester United open to signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for free .

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane is open to joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window

According to HITC (h/t Manchester Evening News), Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane would be open to joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

United have been looking for a proper no.9 even since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from the club and although Dutch International Wout Weghorst has been signed on a loan deal, it is seen as a stop-gap rather than the permanent solution.

Erik ten Hag is keen to add a striker to his ranks, which could be the missing piece for this rapidly improving United team and Kane should be one of the primary targets.

The England captain is one of the best players in the league yet is still waiting to win his first trophy with Tottenham Hotspur and many believe that it is time for Kane, who turns 30 in the summer, to look for a move away.

United have been touted as a potential destination mainly due to the fact that the club is looking to sign a world-class forward to bring them closer to the top while Kane is aware he only has a few years left to stack a claim and win some trophies.

It would be a shame if a player of the ilk of Kane, who has amassed 198 goals in the league till now ended his career without any major trophy.

The Resurgent United’s side under Ten Hag can provide Kane with exactly the right team which would help him and the team to make the big jump.

With his contract expiring in June 2024(Transfermarkt), the summer transfer window might present the best opportunity for interested teams to try and acquire the services of the player.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a shrewd businessman and by no means would want to lose Kane on a free transfer in case he does not agree to a contract extension, the chances of which are getting slimmer with each passing day.

The upcoming summer transfer window could potentially present the best opportunity for United to make a swoop for Kane and build a solid foundation around him. Hopefully, this is a deal we can pull off.

Kane not agreeing on a new contract with Spurs will surely be crucial to our chance, and let’s hope that the situation regarding his extension at Tottenham doesn’t improve.
