Why Harry Kane can be a dream signing for Manchester United
The talismanic striker was said to be growing frustrated with life at Spurs and wanted to make a move away from the club back in March. However, with the team flourishing under Mourinho, Kane might have had a change of heart.
The Spurs frontman had spells at Ridgeway Rovers (twice), Arsenal and Watford before linking up with Tottenham. It was in 2004 that he would join Spurs’ academy and he spent 5 years in the youth side before being promoted to the U-18s. However, within just one season, he was called up to the senior side.
His path to the first-team was a long and complicated one as he went on three separate loan spells to Leyton Orient, Millwall and Leicester City. Kane was given his chance in 2013-14 but in limited games, he couldn’t perform too well.
However, what transpired from the season after would never stop. Since then, Kane has become one of the most lethal frontmen in England and Europe. In 307 appearances for Spurs, he has scored a staggering 203 goals and 43 assists. The forward is the captain of the England national team with 48 appearances and 32 goals.
Harry Kane could be the dream signing and talisman for Manchester United
Ever since Robin van Persie’s departure, Manchester United have lacked an out and out goalscorer who can plunder those 25-30 goals and push the team towards a title. A lot of strikers have come and gone since then but none carried a sustained goal threat. Even their current crop of forwards are more suited to playing in the wider areas.
There are few strikers who can say that they have been the Premier League’s best other than Kane. The Spurs man may not have enjoyed collective success with the team but he has kept up his scintillating run in front of goal over the last 6-7 years. This season, he has added another facet to his game – improved playmaking abilities as evident from his assists tally this season.

Kane seems like the signing Manchester United should be focusing on. He has the ability to keep scoring at will and push his team to greater heights. Something Manchester United desperately need at this point.
