Manchester United board approves £80m bid to sign Tottenham striker

Manchester United’s hierarchy have approved an £80 million bid for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to reports.

Erik ten Hag is looking to improve his attacking options in the summer transfer window by signing a new striker.

Kane has been admired by United’s board for several years but Napoli forward Victor Osimhen, who has scored 21 goals in Serie A this season, is also on the club’s radar.

However, the Daily Star reports that Ten Hag has made Kane his priority target, while United’s CEO Richard Arnold has now given the green light for an £80m offer to be submitted.

The report claims that United are keen to complete the deal as quickly as possible and will open negotiations with Tottenham before the season is over.

Ten Hag is also said to believe that the signing of Kane this summer will make United contenders for the Premier League title next term.

Kane scored in England’s 2-0 victory over Ukraine on Sunday and speaking after the game, former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard said the Tottenham striker has reached a crossroads in his career.

‘He’s got a big decision to make career-wise,’ Gerrard said.

‘I’ve been there myself, where you’re thinking ‘is my team good enough to get me the medals? Am I going to get out of my career what I want to get?’.
