Manchester United might be going through a successful campaign right now, but the team must keep improving if they are to ultimately return to the top of English football once again and compete in the Champions League on a consistent basis. At this point of time, they are quite a few steps away from that.

One area that needs improvement in the squad is striker. Anthony Martial has failed to find the back of the net on a consistent basis this season. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored just 7 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions through the course of this campaign.

On the other hand, Edinson Cavani has looked like a man still capable of leading the line for a top Premier League side. But the fact of the matter is that he is 34 years of age and is not a long-term solution for the Red Devils’ problems up top. The Uruguayan has had his fair share of injury issues as well and has been linked with an Old Trafford exit although there is a possibility that he might end up staying after finding his best form recently.

One man who would be a brilliant signing for the Red Devils is Harry Kane. They have been linked with the Tottenham Hotspur superstar for quite some time now. And as reported by The Sun, Manchester United are plotting a £90 million transfer bid for Kane in the summer.

Kane would be a brilliant signing for Manchester United but can they pull it off?

It goes without saying that signing Kane would be a dream move for Manchester United. The English international might very well be the best striker on the planet at this point of time.

According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 219 goals for Tottenham Hotspur through the course of his career. But for all of his brilliance, he is yet to win a trophy with them. And could he end up leaving the club in search of silverware this summer although his current contract runs till the summer of 2024?

It is safe to say that signing Kane won’t be easy. It is natural that Tottenham Hotspur would not be keen on letting him join another Premier League side and recent rumours have suggested that they could be looking for a transfer fee as high as £150 million.

Thus, if the Red Devils are somehow able to get a deal over the line, it would be seen as a major coup on the part of the club.
