How Nottingham Forest can help Manchester United sign Harry Kane this summer

The two sides may have to work together to pull the move off

Nottingham Forest may be able to hand Manchester United a massive boost in their chase of Harry Kane, with the midlands outfit set to offer up to £30m for goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.

It is an open secret that the Red Devils have made Tottenham star Kane their no.1 priority this summer as they look to improve a lacklustre attack.

Wout Weghorst’s loan deal will expire and he is unlikely to remain a Manchester United player on a permanent basis, while Anthony Martial cannot be relied upon to stay fit, meaning that at least one new addition will be coming into the club this summer in the forward department.

They have a problem though. Kane is likely to cost in the region of £100m and, as was revealed earlier in the week by David Ornstein, Manchester United may be operating largely on a sell to buy model having spent over £200m last summer.

“Right now, to my knowledge, Manchester United are not able to move on very much at all”,he explained.

“You speak to people around the club and there seems to be quite a clear sense that they might have to sell before they can buy.

How Forest can help

As per the Manchester Evening News, however, Forest are keen to do business in order to keep Dean Henderson at the club after a successful loan spell from Old Trafford.

Now confirmed to be in the Premier League next season thanks to a win over Arsenal on Saturday, Forest are even willing to offer as much as £30m for the 25-year-old shot-stopper.

Henderson is currently out injured, but has publicly suggested that he would like to leave Manchester United this summer, and £30m could go a long way to ensuring the signature of Kane before the new season begins.
