Manchester United told to make £100 million upfront payment for Harry Kane

Harry Kane has reportedly been linked with a move away from Tottenham, with Manchester United keen on signing him.

A report from The Times claims that Manchester United are keen on signing Harry Kane in the summer transfer window. But they will have to pay £100 million upfront to land the 29-year-old England international.

Kane is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world, and he has been one of the best strikers in the Premier League for a number of years. Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag needs to bring in a reliable goalscorer so that his side can challenge for the major trophies.

The Red Devils have been overly reliant on Marcus Rashford this season. While the 25-year-old has scored goals consistently, he is more suited to the left-forward role. Manchester United must look to bring in a new number nine to lead the line for them. The Tottenham talisman has thus emerged as a viable target.

Kane might prove to be the ideal acquisition and could form a lethal partnership with his England teammate Rashford at Old Trafford. The 29-year-old is at the peak of his career and will hope to play for a club capable of winning major trophies.

Manchester United have improved immensely this season, and they have already won the League Cup under their new manager. Ten Hag will be pushing for the Premier League title next season. The Red Devils have the squad and the resources to compete for major trophies.

On the other hand, Tottenham are going through a period of uncertainty. Their squad needs a number of additions. In addition, manager Antonio Conte seems to have lost the dressing room and is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.

Kane might feel that this is the right time for him to move on. But it remains to be seen whether Manchester United are prepared to pay £100 million upfront for their top striker target. There is no doubt that Kane has the ability to justify the outlet.

Manchester United have spent significant sums of money to strengthen their squad in recent seasons. In addition, they certainly have the financial resources to pay the reported asking price. However, paying the whole fee upfront could be a bit of a problem for them.
