Manchester United might have one choice to rival Man City star next season

Manchester United supporters will have taken great delight in Leeds’ relegation from the Premier League last weekend, and it could taste even sweeter if the man who orchestrated Leeds’ relegation on the final day of the season also plays for Manchester United next season.

If there were any doubts about Harry Kane’s suitability for the United team, his last performance was the ultimate demonstration of what he could contribute to the team this summer.

Kane is not only one of the Premier League’s greatest strikers, but also one of the best creators.

In all honesty, he has everything this United team requires and is regarded as the possible missing piece to fuel genuine title ambitions.

Given Tottenham’s struggles and Kane’s dearth of service, it is not unreasonable to compare Kane’s 30 league goals this season to Erling Haaland’s 36 goals for Manchester City.

This will be the challenge for next season. If United expect to win the championship, they must strive to be better than City and acquire a striker who can match Haaland’s outrageous output.

Given that he has already proven himself in the Premier League, there appears to be no one in international football who is a safer bet than Kane to be doing that.

“It’s part and parcel of being a footballer, especially when you’re at the top of your game,” the Tottenham striker told BT Sport following the victory over Leeds.

“I have focused on this season and contributing as much as possible to the team. I am simply looking forward to a pleasant vacation and a few games with England.”

Ten Hag is “obsessed” with Tottenham’s star player, but his difficult acquisition is a major concern.

United are unwilling to “play games” with Daniel Levy, who is notorious for stretching out negotiations, and the latest rumor from north London is that they would rather risk losing him for free next year than sell him to a domestic rival.

Ten Hag prefers to complete his business as early as possible this summer, and any star signings should ideally be in position prior to the start of the preseason tour rather than in the final weeks of the transfer window.

Kane is one of the few athletes who merits bending these rules. Similar to how Casemiro was signed for a hefty fee late in the summer transfer window last year, Tottenham’s striker would be acquired for a hefty fee, but his immense talent would justify the transaction.

Even though he would still command a club-record transfer fee, it would be worth it to acquire an elite goalscorer who can compete with the Premier League’s finest.

United is operating under the presumption that Tottenham will not sell Harry Kane this summer, but even if Daniel Levy insists that his club will not, the reality is that every player has a price, and United must test Tottenham’s resolve before pursuing an alternative.
