Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has made it clear that signing a top-class striker is his priority for the upcoming summer transfer window. While many players have been linked with a move to Old Trafford, the main target remains Tottenham talisman Harry Kane.
Ten Hag, who joined United from Ajax last year and has already made a positive impact on the team’s performance, expects backing in the transfer market to further strengthen the squad. The goal is to reshape the team and bridge the gap to challenge Premier League champions Manchester City for the top spot.
At 29 years old, Kane has only one year remaining on his current contract with Tottenham. It remains uncertain if he would be willing to commit his future to Spurs after their disappointing season. According to a recent report from The Sun, Kane’s preference would be to join Manchester United as he is eager to stay in the Premier League and continue his pursuit of Alan Shearer’s all-time goal-scoring record. However, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to entertain the idea of selling their star striker to a direct domestic rival.
If a transfer fails to materialize, Kane could choose to stay at Tottenham and see out the final year of his contract before leaving as a free agent in the summer of 2024. However, this would present a significant dilemma for Ten Hag as he aims to build a team capable of challenging for major honors in the near future.
As the summer transfer window unfolds, the focus will be on Manchester United’s pursuit of an elite No.9 and whether Harry Kane will be the key addition to their attacking lineup. United fans eagerly await further developments as the club seeks to strengthen its squad for the upcoming season.
