Manchester United’s lack of striking options has been clear for some time now.
Wout Weghorst joined the club on loan in January to help plug the gap for the second half of the season.
However, when the summer roles around, it is clear Manchester United will be in the market for a top no.9.
One of the names being linked is Harry Kane of Tottenham and England.
Kane’s future in north London is up in the air amid more struggles from a Spurs side who continue to look very unlikely to lift a trophy anytime soon.
Now, Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Manchester United’s links to Kane, suggesting the future of Antonio Conte could play a big role in any move for the striker:
“Manchester United will explore many situations for a top striker in June, but at the moment I’m not aware of contacts between Harry Kane and any other club. He’s focused on Tottenham, conversations over a new deal are still slow and so it’s normal to have rumours but Antonio Conte’s future is also going be crucial to understand Kane’s plans,” Romano said.
“I know there’s lot of noise on this but Man United hope to have new owners, probably new people into the board as happened with Chelsea… Man United is always in the news with those stories but the reality is that nothing is decided now on who’s going to be the new striker.
“There will be many options and for sure, and Erik ten Hag will be involved in the process of identifying the best target.”
