In the early stages of the 2023 summer transfer period, coach Erik ten Hag aspires to sign a world-class striker. According to the Telegraph, he identified Harry Kane as his number one priority. However, Man United then became pessimistic about their chances of convincing Spurs to release Kane.
Immediately, Man Utd turned its attention to Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund. After a long period of negotiations, the Red Devils closed the deal for 85 million euros including fees.
As for Kane, with only one year left on his contract, it is clear that the England team has a high possibility of leaving Tottenham and the final decision is in his hands. In fact, Kane also wants to continue playing football in the Premier League.
However, Kane eventually joined Bayern Munich with a salary of about £400,000 per week. This week, he has the opportunity to face Man Utd in the opening match of the Champions League group stage.
Kane shared: “The choice to join Man United last summer? Obviously there were talks with different clubs.
But Bayern is the club I really care about. Once they arrive there aren’t many other options. Man United is a big club but I am very happy here.”
