Signing a new striker could be near the top of Manchester United’s wishlist in the upcoming summer transfer window as the club aim to return to the top of English football once again and compete in the Champions League on a consistent basis.

Yes, Edinson Cavani has already extended his stay at Old Trafford for another season and that will be a massive boost for the Red Devils as the Uruguayan looks like the best striker at the club right now. But at the end of the day, he is 34 years of age and is not a long-term solution to their problems up top.

Thus, signing a world-class striker in the summer would make a lot of sense for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. And Harry Kane is someone who has been linked with the club for quite some time now.

As reported by Tribal Football, Manchester United could lodge their first offer for Kane this week, with the transfer bid expected to be in the £90 million range.

Manchester United could reportedly make Kane transfer bid this week

Any transfer bid in the range of £90 million is expected to be rejected by Tottenham Hotspur as Kane is believed to be rated at well over £100 million. But there is the hope that it could serve as the base for the move to ultimately take place after negotiations between both parties.

There is no doubt that Kane is one of the best strikers in the world right now if not the very best. And signing a player of his quality would quickly turn the Red Devils into contenders for not just the Premier League but the Champions League as well.

Signing Kane won’t be easy though. It is only natural that Tottenham Hotspur would not want to let their talisman leave. And if they are indeed open to the prospect of the striker departing, a number of other clubs are expected to be interested in his signature as well.
