Harry Kane transfer development

Manchester United have been told they have ‘no chance’ of signing Tottenham star Harry Kane.

The Manchester Evening News say sources close to the England international have dismissed the Red Devils’ chances of signing the striker.

It would take a huge fee for Spurs to even remotely entertain the prospect of selling their captain to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

And it’s now likely that United will try to sign an alternative instead.

Moussa Dembele and Timo Werner are both admired at Old Trafford having impressed for Lyon and RB Leipzig this season.

Man Utd contact De Ligt alternative

Manchester United have made contact with Samuel Umtiti at a time where they’re looking into signing Matthijs de Ligt.

De Ligt is their top defensive target with the club hopeful they can sign the Juventus star in a swap deal involving Paul Pogba.

But Sport say United have now contacted the camp of Umtiti.

The Barcelona star was a target for the club back when Jose Mourinho ruled the Old Trafford roost.

And with the La Liga giants looking to sell, United could make a move.

Angel Gomes hint

Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes has hinted he’ll extend his contract at Old Trafford by expressing a desire to win trophies for the club.

“I’ve seen it over the years, coming up from the academy and being at United my whole career,” said Gomes in a official Google hangout.

“It’s what I want to go on to do – win trophies for the club.”

Chelsea want to sign the teenager.

But United are hopeful they’ll get Gomes into penning a new deal.

Odion Ighalo speaks out

Odion Ighalo has admitted he would like to stay at United should they offer him a contract.

“Of course,” he said on Twitter when asked if that was the case.

The Nigeria international has scored four goals from eight games since his shock arrival from Shanghai Shenhua on transfer deadline day.

Shanghai want to offer him a new contract worth £400,000-a-week.

But Ighalo has now made his priority clear.
