According to the latest reports, this is how much Manchester United will have to fork out to sign Harry Kane in the summer transfer window.

When reports surfaced about Harry Kane being open to a move away from Tottenham, the Manchester United board’s eyes must have gleamed.

The Red Devils have been on a relentless pursuit to recruit a world-class forward for some time now.

Ever since that void had been left behind by the ageing legs of Wayne Rooney.

Some have come and gone since, and tried and failed.

Much hope was vested in Romelu Lukaku for example, but he couldn’t cut it at Old Trafford.

The Belgian forward did not fit into the explosive counter-attacking football deployed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Lukaku’s lack of mobility was his ultimate downfall.

In his absence the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have filled in the forward role, however both are more comfortable on the flanks.

It is why the United board were pinching themselves when the news about Harry Kane wanting to leave Tottenham broke.

Harry Kane after all is England’s best forward. He is the England captain. He was the top-scorer at the previous World Cup. He is regarded as England’s saviour and he is one of the best strikers in the world.

The prospect of Harry Kane’s golden feet stepping onto the turf at Old Trafford wearing the Red Devils’ crest makes one’s mouth water.

Kane has the potential to lead Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revolution at the club.

Still just 27 years of age, Kane is on a mission to beat Alan Shearer‘s Premier League goalscoring record.

And the English forward will be determined to achieve his dream. He will stop at nothing to do it.

That sort of hunger and determination could be a vital asset for United.

However, the Red Devils will have to pay an extortionate fee to land the Tottenham forward.

According to the Daily Mail via the Metro, Tottenham have set Harry Kane’s asking price at £200 million in the summer.

That would make Kane the most expensive footballer ever, and the steep asking price could deter the Red Devils.

However if United are serious about getting back to the pinnacle of English and European football, they should be willing to match Tottenham’s asking price.
