Harry Kane became the subject of interest in the confrontation between Tottenham and Manchester United in the Premier League. The England international is Erik ten Hag’s top target as the summer transfer window approaches.
Red Devils fans also repeatedly urged Kane to come to Old Trafford after this season. In the event that the deal comes to fruition, what awaits Kane in a Man Utd shirt?
The most prominent shirt that Kane can wear at Man United is the number 7 which is still empty. This is the iconic shirt at Old Trafford, which previously belonged to outstanding stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Eric Cantona and George Best throughout the team’s history.
Man United could even hand Kane the number 9 shirt if Anthony Martial leaves. At this time, the French player is having difficulty maintaining stability and physical foundation.
Number 11 is also worth considering because at present, no one is sure about Mason Greenwood’s situation. But it is difficult to see Kane wearing the number 10 shirt like in the Tottenham shirt. That shirt number is now Marcus Rashford’s.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the Red Devils were willing to pay Kane a large amount of money to bring him back to Old Trafford. It is said that Man Utd offered Kane a huge salary, up to £300,000 per week.
Kane is currently pocketing £200,000 a week at Tottenham, with his current contract set to expire next summer. It can be seen that Man Utd made an offer that was difficult to refuse.
If he signs for Man Utd, Kane will enter the main team of coach Erik Ten Hag. Kane is the upgrade of Martial, who has spent a long time on the sidelines until this point of the season.
Man United will deploy Kane at the front line of attack in the role of number 9, with Antony on the right and Marcus Rashford on the left. Bruno Fernandes can then be used as a fancy number 10.
Of course, Kane can drop deep, but United will want him to work as close to goal as possible to increase the team’s chances of scoring.
However, any deal for Kane won’t come cheap. Tottenham will demand at least £80m from its overseas partners. Bayern Munich show interest in the context that they are lacking a number of 9 levels.
In the event that Kane wants to stay in the Premier League, Tottenham will then have to sell him to a direct opponent, so it will demand a higher fee. They can demand more than 100 million pounds for Kane to move to Man United to play football.
And once the Red Devils accept to pay such a high price, the 29-year-old will become the most expensive signing in the team’s history ever.
