Manchester United eye head start in Harry Kane race! Red Devils set to move swiftly in bid to secure Tottenham's talismanic striker

  • United to swoop in with Kane bid
  • Red Devils want head start in race
  • Napoli star Osimhen also an option

WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils want to make negotiations with Spurs smooth by getting their offer in early, according to The Guardian. United are aware that they face a tough battle in convincing Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to let their talisman leave for Old Trafford, especially amid a disappointing season that has resulted in many fans calling for him to resign.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: United are in the market to sign a new striker and Kane has been their top target for some time. Victor Osimhen was also on the club's list of targets, but the Nigerian forward is said to be too expensive at around £130 million ($161m).

AND WHAT'S MORE: United will also aim to strengthen in midfield this summer and are still in the market to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea. It has been reported they are to make a £55m ($68m) offer for the England international.
