A new striker might be near the top of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s summer wishlist, as he aims to take Manchester United back to the top of English football. And one man who the club have been linked over the years is Harry Kane.
There is no doubting the fact that Kane is one of the best strikers in the world at this point of time, if not the very best. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 32 goals and provided 16 assists in 47 appearances this season across all competitions.
But for all his brilliance over the years for Tottenham Hotspur, he is yet to win a trophy. And it is in search of silverware that he could end up leaving the club in the near future.
As reported by Sky Sports, Kane has told Tottenham Hotspur that he wants to leave this summer. His preference is to remain in the Premier League as well, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea believed to be interested in signing the superstar.

Signing Kane would be a huge boost for Manchester United
Yes, it is true that the Red Devils have managed to extend Edinson Cavani’s contract. The Uruguayan has been brilliant in recent weeks and him staying is brilliant news for Solskjaer’s side.
But at the end of the day, Cavani is 34 years of age and is not the long-term solution for the club’s problems up top. Kane could be though if the club are able to get a deal for him over the line.
Of course, it is not going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination. Not only are the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea also interested, Tottenham Hotspur are expected to be looking for a transfer fee over £100 million as well, which would be difficult to meet for any club in the current financial climate.
But one thing is for sure, if any of these teams manage to sign Kane, they would be considered Premier League favourites come next season.
