Kane – A United alternative for Griezmann

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is planning an ambitious move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane this summer, should Antoine Griezmann decline an offer to join Old Trafford.

The England international netted his second hat-trick of the campaign as he took his goal tally to 22 in just 27 outings for Spurs in all competitions.

Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann has been earmarked as the top summer target for the Mancunian giants, but it appears that he is reluctant to leave Vicente Calderon this summer.

Diego Simeone‘s contract is due to expire in the summer of 2018, and the Frenchman could wait until his manager’s departure to decide on a fresh challenge elsewhere.

According to The Star, Kane is the potential backup option for United, and a &pound80m bid could be lodged for his services in the summer.

Kane recently became Spurs’ highest earner on a contract extended until 2022, and he will have no reason to switch clubs having iterated his desire to remain a one-club player.
