Man United ready to pay £50m for Spurs star Harry Kane in massive transfer spree

According to Sky Sports sources, Manchester United will be heavily active in the transfer market next summer, as the club look to build their squad into a title challenging team, on both the Domestic and European fronts.

Speaking after United’s disappointing 0-0 draw with West Ham on Saturday, Louis Van Gaal took the bizarre step of dampening expectations in the build up to United’s crunch clash against Wolfsburg in the Champions League on Tuesday, by claiming his side are not good enough to win the competition this season.

The Dutch boss suggested he would need to ‘strengthen in certain positions’ in order to challenge for major European honours in the future.

Sky sources report that the shake up of the United squad will not begin until next summer, as the hierarchy at Old Trafford do not want to be drawn into spending big money in January.

Reports from the Daily Star suggest United will start their summer spending by swooping for Spurs star Harry Kane.

The newspaper reports that United will offer in the region of £50million for the striker.

Whilst United’s interest in Kane has been well documented in the past, the Spurs forward has always indicated his desire to stay at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.
