Manchester United ‘need’ a striker like Tottenham star Harry Kane and the England skipper would be a fantastic addition for the Red Devils.
That’s according to former United striker Louis Saha, who believes Erik ten Hag will target a centre forward this summer.
United spent £220m in the Dutchman’s first summer in charge, with the club releasing an extra £90m in funds after a disastrous start to the season.
That will inevitably impact Ten Hag’s budget for 2023, while another season outside of the Champions League would also hit the club’s finances.
Kane, 29, failed to force through a move to Manchester City in 2021 and the club turned to Erling Haaland last summer, ending the Englishman’s hopes of a move to the Etihad.
However, Kane has less than two years left on his deal in north London and next summer will be Spurs’ final chance to obtain a fee close to the striker’s true valuation.
United have a long-term interest in Kane and Saha says the England striker would be the perfect addition at Old Trafford.
‘Of course Kane would be a great signing for United,’ Saha told Compare.Bet.
‘He could go anywhere in the world and he would shine.
‘I would be very happy with him at United, because United need the kind of composure Kane has up front.’
