According to reports, Man Utd are ‘exploring the possibility’ of offering a player to Tottenham Hotspur to ‘facilitate’ a move for Harry Kane.
The striker announced last summer that he was keen to leave Spurs. He justified this by stating that he wanted to maximise his chances of winning team trophies.
Man Utd and Man City were reportedly interested in him but no one could agree a deal as Tottenham demanded around £150m for him.
Kane is in great form at the moment as he has grabbed seven goals and three assists from his last seven Premier League games.
ESPN are now reporting that Man Utd are eager to ‘facilitate a move’ for Kane this summer.
To do this, they are ‘exploring the possibility’ of offering Anthony Martial to Tottenham as part of the deal.
Man Utd are hopeful that it ‘would offset some of the cost’ to sign Kane if they include Martial in the transfer.
The Frenchman was linked with Spurs in January, but he reportedly turned them down to join Sevilla on loan.
Elsewhere, Luke Shaw has insisted that England captain Kane is the best striker in the world after his winning goal against Switzerland.
Kane’s match-winning penalty in Saturday’s 2-1 friendly victory saw him draw level with Sir Bobby Charlton on 49 England goals.
That leaves just Wayne Rooney ahead of him, on 53, as the Tottenham forward continues to lead the way for Gareth Southgate’s side.
In all likelihood, with seven games between now and the World Cup in Qatar this winter, Kane could go into the tournament having already eclipsed the record.
Having won the Golden Boot as England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 competition, Shaw believes Kane will now have his eyes on the same prize this time around.
“I don’t see why not,” the Manchester United full-back said.
“For me at the moment, the way he’s playing, he’s one of the best strikers in the world. Probably the best. So hopefully you can keep that form up, keep it going.
“He’s showing it week in week out at the moment and it’s a joy to watch. Long may that continue and I’m sure he will be hunting another Golden Boot and all the other records.”
