Mourinho Ready to Seal “Brilliant” £125,000-a-week Star Signing for Man Utd
Manchester United were missing prolific goalscorer since the departure of Robin van Persie and Mourinho solved the dilemma by signing Ibrahimovic last summer.
Zlatan has been fantastic for the Red Devils this season but he is not getting any younger and Jose must look for someone who will eventually replace the 35-year-old striker.
In such a scenario, once again Tottenham star Harry Kane is in the limelight.
According to reports (CalcioMercato), the former Chelsea boss wants Kane as a long term replacement for the Swedish superstar and Man United are ready to splash as much as 80 million pounds to sign the 23-year-old center forward next summer.
Last month, Kane signed a new deal with Tottenham worth (Football365) £125,000-a-week.
The former Leicester player was the leading goalscorer in the Premier League last season and has been in top form for Spurs under Pochettino. He is the No.1 striker for Mauricio and lately the Argentine manager has praised Kane as a “brilliant” player (Standard).
This season, he has netted 10 goals in 14 league appearances for the North Londoners. Zlatan has scored 13 goals in 20 league games.
Levy did not sell the likes of Modric and Bale to Man United and it is highly unlikely that he will let Kane leave for Old Trafford. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds next summer.
