Man Utd make Tottenham striker Harry Kane their top summer transfer target

Manchester United have made Tottenham striker Harry Kane their top summer transfer target, while they also interested in signing his England teammate Mason Mount from Chelsea.

Erik ten Hag is said to be in the market for an elite number nine this summer and is currently short of options in attack, having relied heavily on Burnley loanee Wout Weghorst.

The Guardian claim that the uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte's future in north London could pave the way for Kane's exit, whose contract expires in 2024.

However, Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator, and is expected to demand an enormous fee for the 29-year-old.


Football Insider report that the club would only consider offers above £100million for their prized asset, who is also a target of Bayern Munich.


Kane is staring down the barrel of another trophy-less season with Spurs, having been knocked out of the Champions League by AC Milan on Wednesday. Whilst heir top four hopes are in jeopardy following their 1-0 defeat to Wolves on the weekend.

Ten Hag is also allegedly interested in Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, but his lack of Premier League experience could put United off. Furthermore, the Nigerian is expected to cost in excess of €100 million (£89m).


Man Utd interested in Mount

Meanwhile, Mount has emerged as a cheaper alternative to Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Mount is said to be unhappy with his wage compared to other players at Stamford Bridge, with contract negotiations said to have hit a brick wall.

His situation has sparked interest from Liverpool. However, Premier League rivals United are now said to have entered the race for his signature. Whilst Serie A giants Juventus are also thought to be keeping tabs.


The Guardian states that Chelsea are expected to 'welcome offers for Mount if he goes into the summer with one year left on his deal'.

His £75,000-a-week wages make him one of Chelsea's lowest earners, with the England international keen for the club to prove they value him.

He has been voted player of the season in consecutive seasons, but the influx of players like Enzo Fernandez has seen him lose his place in recent weeks.

It is understood that Mount has been offered a deal worth £180,000 a week. Whilst fellow England teammate Reece James has been handed a £250,000 per week contract.
