Manchester United told to ‘break the bank’ for Tottenham striker Harry Kane


Tony Pulis has told Manchester United to “break the bank” to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Kane has been the leading man for Spurs for the last six seasons and will be Jose Mourinho’s go-to guy again in the 2020/21 campaign.

The England skipper ended 2019/20 with 18 Premier League goals, despite an injury-hit campaign and the upheaval of Mourinho replacing Mauricio Pochettino.

During the lockdown of last season – Kane dropped a transfer bombshell when he said he wouldn’t stay at Spurs “for the sake of it”.

“It’s one of those things, I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no,” he told Sky Sports in March. “I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs. But it’s one of those things – I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better, I want to become one of the top, top players.

“It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever – but it’s not a no either.”

Inevitably, transfer talk was rife after Kane’s comments, with Manchester United the main club linked with a big-money move.

Those rumours have since gone quiet as United pursue Jadon Sancho, but Pulis believes Kane’s signature would make them “contenders” again.

United finished third last season but finished a giant 33 points off champions Liverpool.

“Talking about who United should get, they should go and sign Harry Kane,” Pulis told Sky Sports.

“Spend an absolute fortune, break the bank and then they will be contenders.”
