Man Utd could give up on signing 22-goal star after fresh club stance


Manchester United may not sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer due to the club’s new stance.

The Red Devils are looking for a marquee striker ahead of next season, and Kane is reportedly one of manager Erik ten Hag’s top targets.

The Dutchman obviously values the 29-year-old’s goal scoring record, but after the latest update, United may have to look elsewhere.

Tottenham are willing to sell their prized asset this summer, but may demand a single payment of £100 million, according to The Times.

This, in our opinion, may jeopardize United’s chances of signing him because paying the entire fee upfront may subject them to Financial Fair Play (FFP) sanctions.

In January, United’s director of football, John Murtough, emphasized the same point. Without staggered payments, we believe the club may be hesitant to make such a large investment.

Manchester United could concentrate on other striker targets.

Kane has over 200 Premier League goals to his name. He would be an excellent addition to the Red Devils because he would take little time to adjust.

However, without player sales, United may be unable to pay the entire fee upfront, prompting them to look for alternative options in the transfer market.

Victor Osimhen has been linked frequently in recent weeks, but United are in a similar situation. Napoli values him at £133 million and may demand a large fee up front.

As a result, the club could concentrate on a younger upcoming striker, and Sesko could be the ideal solution.

Leipzig have agreed to sign him from sister club RB Salzburg for £20 million this summer, but United could still sway them with a higher offer.

A package worth around £40 million could suffice. United could also finalize a long-term payment plan with Salzburg to avoid exceeding the FFP limit.

Sesko has only 12 goals this season, compared to Kane’s 22. He is, however, only 19 years old and has the potential to become an elite center-forward.
