In a recent report, The Independent has stated that Manchester United are among several clubs hoping to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane this summer. It is understood that the Red Devils will have to battle it out with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City in the race to recruit the England international during this summer transfer period (via The Independent).
Kane’s Sensational Numbers At North London This Season
On a personal front, the 27-year-old is enjoying another remarkable season at North London as he has banged in goals for fun as the focal point of Jose Mourinho’s attack. Kane has played in 42 matches for the Spurs this term, netting 29 goals and providing 16 assists in all competitions.
The London-born frontman has given everything for his team by averaging 0.7 tackles, 1.2 clearances, 3.9 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in this Premier League campaign. However, he needs to work on improving his link-up play after making 69.4% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Kane is still under contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until the summer of 2024, so Spurs have no immediate need to cash in on him. However, if the North London giants end up missing out on UEFA Champions League, it will be difficult for them to keep hold of the player beyond this summer.
What Will The English Sensation Bring To The Theatre Of Dreams?
Kane is a lethal finisher inside the opposition penalty box which explains how he can score goals at such a high rate at the top level. He is also not shy of setting up his teammates if they are in a more advantageous position in the attacking third.
The 53-time England international has formed an almost telepathic understanding with Heung-min Son and has proven his worth as a natural leader as well during his long career with Tottenham. However, the lack of any silverware in Kane’s trophy cabinet is quite surprising for a player of his quality which could force him to find a way out of North London in search of some success at the highest level.
Will Kane Be A Dream Option For The Red Devils?
Kane is a two-time Premier League golden boot winner and has still got plenty of football left in his locker. Hence, he will be a dream option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even if Man United have to pay the big bucks to acquire his services in this off-season.
The English superstar could propel the Mancunian giants to challenge for the Premier League title once again and even be a force in European football in the coming seasons. Plus, he would serve as an upgrade over Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani at Old Trafford.
