Man Utd transfer news: Erik ten Hag handed boost in pursuit of Harry Kane

Erik ten Hag, Man Utd, 2023/24

Manchester United have been tipped to sign Harry Kane this summer by former Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United star Kevin Nolan.

Kane, 30, joined Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur in 2023, but he has been touted to leave the German giants after just one season.

FootballTransfers understand that Man Utd remain interested in signing Kane, with the England international deemed a key transfer target despite Rasmus Hojlund’s recent form in front of goal.

The Denmark international has seven goals and two assists in his last six appearances for the Red Devils, after a difficult start to life at the club, but Man Utd don’t want to miss out on Kane for a second consecutive summer if he becomes available.

Furthermore, Nolan believes Kane is likely to move to Old Trafford.

What has Kevin Nolan said?

“I can certainly see him back in the Premier League,” Nolan told TalkSPORT (via CaughtOffside).

“I don’t think Tottenham would have ever have sold him to Man Utd, but for him to go to Bayern Munich, then it’s easier for him to come back from Germany and I think Man Utd will be his destination.

“I think they [Bayern] would want their money back. Of course [he is worth it]. 20+ goals every season and he was playing for Tottenham during them times as well.

“Realistically, are Man Utd as good as Tottenham? But I just think he brings a different aura to them anyway, a different aura to the team as soon as he puts the shirt on for whoever.

“But I probably think Man Utd would be the one.”

Kane has scored 33 goals and provided nine assists in just 33 games for Bayern since his €95 million summer move from Tottenham last year and he will be looking to add to his tally when Thomas Tuchel’s side face Mainz on Saturday.
