According to a report from Manchester Evening News, Manchester United have been handed a significant boost in their hopes of signing Harry Kane in the summer transfer window. Kane has acknowledged that he has certain matters that he wishes to discuss with Tottenham Hotspur.

Erik ten Hag is pursuing the England captain as his primary transfer target for the summer as the club seeks to strengthen their frontline. It remains unclear whether Daniel Levy would be open to receiving an offer for Kane. Still, the striker’s recent admission might raise Manchester United’s hopes of striking a deal in the forthcoming transfer window.

Kane’s Impressive Numbers For Tottenham Hotspur So Far This Season

At the forefront of Tottenham’s offence, Harry Kane is delivering yet another impressive season with a series of remarkable performances. The English striker has scored 28 goals and provided five assists across 45 games for Tottenham across all competitions this season.

Kane has been a dependable force in the central role, averaging 3.5 shots, 1.6 key passes, and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. However, he needs to improve his ball distribution efficiency, having completed just 71.9% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Kane’s contract at the North London club is set to expire in the summer of 2024. Hence, a move would almost certainly have to happen by this summer if the Spurs are to cash in.

Should Erik Ten Hag Bring Him To Manchester United?

Harry Kane is undoubtedly one of Europe’s top strikers, possessing a lethal finishing ability inside the penalty box and a tendency to take shots from distance. His positioning and goal-scoring instincts make him a constant threat to opposing defences.

Standing at 1.88 meters tall, Kane is a dominant presence in the air and uses his strong frame to fend off defenders and create scoring opportunities for himself. Additionally, he can make incisive passes to set up his teammates in front of the goal.

Currently in his prime and in fine form, Kane’s departure from Tottenham could potentially offer him better opportunities to win major titles. The Red Devils could leverage their position in negotiating with him if they fair well at the end of this season.

He would be an ideal fit for Erik Ten Hag‘s playstyle and could bring more goals to United’s attacking department. Overall, Ten hag should do well to make contact with him in order to persuade him to exit North London.
