Manchester United board has identified priority £100m rated striker, Harry Kane, to sign this summer, The Athletic reports.
Man United’s hierarchy is fearful of Dortmund’s Erling Haaland joining Manchester City this summer and feel they must make a marquee signing of their own in response.
With Mason Greenwood still suspended after his arrest, Anthony Martial loaned out, Marcus Rashford struggling and Edinson Cavani leaving, Man United have identified a new striker as the position they need to strengthen most.
As a result, the Premier League giants have now reignited their interest in Kane, a player they have tried unsuccessfully to lure to the club on several occasions in the past.
Man United’s chiefs are eyeing a club-record move for Kane, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, irrespective of who they decide to appoint as their next manager.
The Old Trafford club are currently in the process of interviewing candidates to succeed interim manager Ralf Rangnick, with the Red Devils hoping to have a new striker ahead of next season.
Ajax’s Erik ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino are the two frontrunners to replace Rangnick.
Jadon Sancho criticized over his reaction after ignoring Cristiano Ronaldo
Former Newcastle United star, Darren Ambrose has criticized Jadon Sancho over his reaction after ignoring Cristiano Ronaldo during Manchester United 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Monday.
Ambrose said Sancho needed to start imposing himself and producing ‘a bit more’ for the club after his big money move from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Sancho came under scrutiny for his performance in the last game and in particular, his reaction after having a shot blocked in the seventh minute after ignoring Ronaldo caught the attention of Ambrose who demanded that the England international do that more often.
“Sancho just looks out of sorts and I’ve backed him many, many times to come good,” Ambrose told talkSPORT.
“£73million, the pressure got taken off him a bit when they brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, but he needs to produce a bit more.
“There was a moment where they went through and they went two-vs-one basically, and he ignored Ronaldo.
“Absolutely fine; get your shot off, it got blocked. It was after that, it was like the reaction after that.”
