Man United’s strategy to beat Man City to Harry Kane signing is rooted in making the striker very rich

Man United’s strategy to beat Man City to Harry Kane signing is rooted in making the striker very rich

United plan Kane proposal

Manchester United’ strategy to tempt Harry Kane to the club over Manchester City is to use their financial weight regarding wages.

The Sunday Times describes the proposal to be a ‘substantial financial package’ designed solely to blow City and Chelsea out of the water.

The proposal is understood to form part of a substantial financial package being prepared by United to put them ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea in the race to sign the England captain.

The club recently confirmed the extension of Edinson Cavani’s contract but the club has been aware of Kane’s intentions for some time and the Uruguayan’s presence is not set to affect their pursuit.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said as much, “I can’t say we’re not signing a striker. Of course not.”

Intriguing. With Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood also available to play as central strikers United are well stocked but it seems Kane is a profile too good to turn down.

History of outmatching City

When the profile of Alexis Sanchez became available from Arsenal, both City and United were interested.

However, it was revealed that United were willing to offer the Chilean a contract City were simply unable to match.

“We looked at it again in January, but the situation had changed for us compared to how we looked at it in the summer,” said City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak

“The reality is that the economics simply didn’t work for us any more. If it makes sense for us, we’ll do it. If it doesn’t make sense, we are perfectly comfortable walking away.”

United were theorised to be paying Alexis Sanchez a huge amount on top of bonuses for simply starting games.

The red half of Manchester must be wary about repeating the same mistake again.
