Cavani and Kane

Numerous clubs are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer, including Manchester United. The Red Devils are expected to compete with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City in the fight to sign the England international during the summer window. With rumours about Cavani moving out of England after a year, Ole should be thinking of a full-time replacement putting the striker issues away, for about 5 years (or more!)

On a personal level, the 27-year-old has had another outstanding season in North London, scoring goals at will as the centrepiece of the Spurs offensive. Kane has appeared in 44 games for the Spurs this season, scoring 31 goals and assisting 16 times in all competitions. In this Premier League season, the London-born striker has averaged 0.6 tackles, 1.2 clearances, 3.9 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 1.2 dribbles per game for his side.


Kane's deal at Tottenham Hotspur runs till the summer of 2024, so the club has no real need to sell him. That being said, if the North London giants fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, keeping track of the player much beyond summer would be difficult.


How can he help Manchester United?

Kane is a deadly finisher within the penalty box, which describes why he can score goals at that high pace at the highest level. He's still not afraid to set up his teammates in the offensive third if they're in a better position. During his long career with Tottenham, the 53-time England international has established an almost telepathic understanding with Heung-min Son and has established his quality as a true leader. However, for a player of Kane's calibre, the lack of trophies in his cabinet is shocking, and it could cause him to leave North London in chase of excellence at the highest level.

Kane has already won the Premier League Golden Boot twice and still has a lot of football left within him. As a result, he would be a dream choice for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, even though Man United may have to spend a lot of money to get him this off-season. This investment could propel the Red Devils to challenge the Premier League and European greatness in the years to come. With Edinson Cavani rumoured to leave the Carrington ground this coming summer, an investment in Harry Kane might be the way to go with Anthony Martial also not being proper at his game this season.
