Pep Guardiola has opened the door for Manchester United to try and sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer window
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer steered his team to second place in the Premier League after a disappointing campaign, but he’s made a new striker his main aim for the summer transfer window.
Kane was a shining light for Spurs amid a difficult campaign under Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason last term, scoring 23 goals and registering 14 assists from 35 Premier League matches.
Manchester City have already reportedly made their move to try and get a deal done, but that bid was rejected and City will have to pay over £120 million to try and sign Kane this summer
However, £100m+ transfers are going to be tricky for any club this summer – and manager Pep Guardiola has hinted that perhaps his side won’t sign anyone at all.
“I imagine that if we want to sign a Barca or Madrid player for 100 million or so, Barca and Madrid will not complain,” he told Spanish TV.
“I don’t know how the market will end. I don’t know what we can do because many times you want to do things that are not possible.
“What we can do, we will do and if we do not we continue with the squad we have, with which we have won three Leagues in four years, we have finally reached a Champions League final.”
United are definitely a club that need to add a striker to the squad this transfer window, and they have been big fans of Kane, but they will have to pay big money to get a deal done, can they afford it?
