Mauricio Pochettino will ask Manchester United to sign Harry Kane if he becomes the club’s new manager next season, according to The Telegraph.
Kane was heavily linked with a departure from Tottenham in last summer, with Manchester City said to be keen on the England captain throughout the transfer window.
He ended up staying put at Spurs and, after a slow start to the campaign, has looked back to his best in recent weeks, scoring and creating regularly for Antonio Conte’s side.
But are we set for yet another summer of speculation when it comes to Kane’s future?
The Telegraph claims Manchester United are eyeing former Tottenham boss Pochettino to take over at Old Trafford, and the Argentine is understood to be keen on a reunion with Kane.
It is believed Pochettino ‘is expected to push’ for the signing of Kane if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain for United.
But surely it isn’t as simple as that.
For starters, United are currently struggling to qualify for the Champions League, and it’s highly unlikely Kane would opt to join a Europa League club – particularly if it’s Spurs who steal fourth spot at United’s expense.
One thing’s for sure, though: if Tottenham miss out on a Champions League spot, there will be plenty of speculation about Kane next summer.
