Manchester United are preparing for the eventuality that they fail to sign Harry Kane.
Kane is believed to be the Red Devils’ top summer transfer target. A lack of a clear-cut striker has plagued the Red Devils all season, and it’s thought that signing Kane, with his goal-scoring and link-up ability, would solve that problem.
It has also been speculated that Kane’s record in the English Premier League (EPL) has led to him wanting to continue his career in his home league and wants to lift trophies, so there is a good chance that he will join United next season as they challenge for more trophies.안전놀이터
However, United are worried that Tottenham Hotspur will not sell Kane. Kane has one year left on his contract, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is unwilling to sell him, whether he re-signs or not, given the club’s situation. Kane is responsible for much of Tottenham’s power, and the club would likely collapse if he left.
As such, the club has even considered alternatives to Kane in case they are unable to sign him. According to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News and an insider at United, “With Tottenham refusing to sell Kane, United are looking to sign another striker. Manager Eric ten Haag has named Kane as his preferred target, but United are reluctant to play games with chairman Levy, who is notorious for stalling negotiations.” Luckhurst revealed five strikers United could target if they fail to land Kane.
Victor Osimhen (Napoli), Randal Kolo Moani (Eintracht Frankfurt), Rasmus Hojjelun (Atalanta), Gonzalo Higuain (SL Benfica) and Mohamed Kudus (Ajax) are the five players Luckhurst mentioned. What all five have in common is that they are young and talented players. Even Osimhen, the oldest of the players mentioned, was born in 1998 and is still 24 years old. The youngest is Hoyun, who was born in 2003 and is only 20 years old.
If Kane is a resource that can be utilised immediately, then the players mentioned as possible replacements for Kane can be thought of as players that United can rely on to provide the team’s attack in the long term.
