Football.London have revealed that Manchester United could turn their attentions to Harry Kane this summer if they fail to secure the signing of Jadon Sancho.

Sancho was said to be Man Utd’s main transfer target this summer but Borussia Dortmund have insisted that the winger will stay put at Gelsenkirchen after the Red Devils failed to complete the deal before the August 10 deadline that the German club set.

Football.London claim that Red Devils decided to move for Sancho since the winger would fit in interchangeably with Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in their front three but it is alleged that the club have always viewed Kane as the perfect solution.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are said to view the England captain as the quintessential Manchester United striker and it is alleged that he was the man the club had earmarked to replace Romelu Lukaku last summer.

The report claims that Dortmund’s tough stance on Sancho could tempt United to try again for Kane this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Linking United with a move for Kane as an alternative to Sancho is nothing but lazy journalism in my opinion. While it is true that the Red Devils have always admired the Spurs striker, there is no chance that they can strike a deal with Levy if they are having trouble meeting Dortmund’s £108m price tag for Sancho. The Spurs chairman is not going to allow Kane to leave for anything below £200m with four years to run on his contract.
