Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has teased a potential transfer raid on Tottenham for Harry Kane. It comes as the Erling Haaland saga takes another twist with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona interested.

Tottenham star Kane was talked up by Solskjaer as links between the striker and the Red Devils increase.

United are looking to sign a new forward with Edinson Cavani likely to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Anthony Martial is not consistent enough to hold the role while Marcus Rashford is better operating on the left flank.

It means Solskjaer has a conundrum but there is interest in Borussia Dortmund hotshot Haaland.

However, most of Europe is interested in the Norway international – including Premier League rivals City and Chelsea.

But Real Madrid are leading the race to land the 20-year-old, who has been priced at £126m.

It means there is every chance United could miss out on the youngster and might have other options to pursue instead.

And Solskjaer, perhaps in a mischievous mood, could not help but tease a potential transfer after listing Kane as his ideal forward.

United take on Tottenham this weekend in the Premier League and the Norwegian was full of praise for the England international.

He said: “When you’re playing against one of the best centre-forwards in European football, of course it’s something that we prepare for.

“I think every team when they play Tottenham or England, you know Harry Kane’s qualities. But we prepare the defenders for every single opponent.

“The season that Son and Kane have had, their relationship is one of Tottenham’s strengths and they also have other quality players we have to be aware of.”

Kane has been tipped to leave to Spurs at the end of the season as he chases trophies.

However, Spurs chief Daniel Levy is a wily negotiator and would be totally against any move that would see Tottenham’s main man leave for a direct rival in the Premier League.
