Manchester United planning audacious swap deal for Harry Kane

The Red Devils could well look to bring down the striker’s price

Manchester United are reportedly exploring ways to bring down the price of Harry Kane’s potential move this summer, and one of those could be by including goalkeeper Dean Henderson in any deal.

The Red Devils are on the hunt for a new striker this summer, with Wout Weghorst’s deal unlikely to be made permanent and Anthony Martial having failed to nail down a spot in Erik ten Hag’s side due to injury, which could see him sold this summer.

And, one of the options that United are reportedly considering is England’s captain and Tottenham’s record goalscorer Harry Kane, who is out of contract as things stand in 2024, and who could well be on the move this summer.

Should he depart, however, it is reported that Tottenham would demand a £100m fee paid up front, something that would seriously eat into Ten Hag’s budget for further squad building, with a midfielder, centre back and goalkeeper also high on his wishlist this summer.

As a result, ESPN have claimed that one way in which they could look to bring the price down is by including on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson in any deal, with the 24-year-old seemingly without any future in Manchester.

Currently plying his trade with Nottingham Forest, Henderson is looking for regular first team football after a season stuck behind David De Gea in the pecking order.

Though under contract until 2025, Manchester United are expected to listen to offers for Henderson and a deal involving the shot-stopper could help bring down the enormous fee for Kane, while also being a deal that suits all parties.
