Manchester United may plan to move for Spurs striker Harry Kane, rather than Declan Rice, in the summer, according to a new report.
The Times’ Gary Jacob has written a column on Rice’s future, insisting that he has a big decision to make this summer as the vultures circle.
There have been various reports claiming that United and Chelsea remain interested, despite the fact that the latter have been sanctioned by the UK government because of Roman Abramovich’s ownership.
But Jacob makes the claim that United may instead look to sign Kane from Spurs in a deal that is likely to cost well in excess of £100m.
Rice would cost a similar amount and it is very unlikely that United would be willing to sanction an outlay of over £200m on just two players in one window.
With Chelsea’s uncertainty and Manchester City eyeing Erling Haaland instead, Rice may well be staying put in east London.
It backs up what we have written this week; there has not been a single enquiry or bid for Rice, despite a variety of claims in newspapers over the last few years.
