Manchester United are reportedly aiming to emulate the title-winning signing of Robin van Persie with a mega money swoop for Tottenham record goalscorer Harry Kane.

The Red Devils are prioritising a move for a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window with Erik ten Hag keen to add more quality to his attack. Dutch striker Wout Weghorst has been signed on a six-month loan deal but he is only anticipated to be a stop-gap for United.

It has already been reported that the club are set to turn to the transfer market once more in the summer with the likes of Kane, Napolis Victor Osimhen and Red Bull Salzburg starlet Benjamin eko all on the clubs shortlist. The Spurs striker would likely represent the biggest name to arrive at Old Trafford.

He is now the North London sides joint-record goalscorer alongside Jimmy Greaves having netted the winning goal against Fulham on Monday evening. Whilst Kanes goalscoring talents would certainly be welcome at Old Trafford, it appears that United chiefs are attracted to further assets of his game.
