According to a report in The Times (as relayed by The Express), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pushing Manchester United’s owners to sign Harry Kane this summer.

United are one of the three Premier League clubs mooted as a potential destination for Kane this summer, along with rivals Manchester City and Chelsea.

Some sources (Ian McGarry of The Transfer Window Podcast) have claimed that the Red Devils are ready to double Kane’s current salary and pay the striker a significant signing on fee to offset the bonus he would be losing out on should he put in a transfer request.

Other reports have indicated that United are likely to prioritise strengthening in other areas of the pitch this summer now that Edinson Cavani has signed a contract extension.

If The Times are to be believed, however, Solskjaer remains particularly keen on bringing the England captain to Old Trafford.

It is explained that the United boss has made it clear to the Glazers that he wants them to pursue a deal for Kane.

It is said that, while United make an attempt to sign the 27-year-old, they might not be able to deliver his signing due to the difficulties in negotiating with Daniel Levy.
