Mourinho wants this player instead of Ronaldo

Posted June 26, 2017

Considering how Harry Kane has finished the season as top goal scorer in the Premier League for two seasons in a row, there should be plenty more transfer gossip about the Spurs striker.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has urged the club's senior officials to ignore any chase for Cristiano Ronaldo, but instead break the world transfer record for Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.

Mourinho is expected to strengthen his attacking options this summer after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic while Wayne Rooney is also being tipped to leave Old Trafford over the coming weeks.

However, a report in The Mirror suggests that Mourinho is not concerned about the club re-signing his compatriot, but instead wants resources committed to bringing Kane to Old Trafford. It is also understandable why sides such as Manchester United are considering big money moves for him.

Although I would rather have Kane I see that Arsenal signing the best and most important player from Tottenham is not going to happen but I do think that Morata has the skills to be just as prolific and important. Today, Man Utd are linked with Harry Kane...

But with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata seemingly set for a £60m move to the Red Devils, club bosses are keen to add another accomplished striker to their ranks.

United would also be financially interesting to Kane, who now earns around £100,000-a-week.

The England striker seems to have everything in his locker and can score any type of goal, and his signing could easily help the Red Devils be Premier League title contenders next term.

"It's early days, but such a drastic fall in odds overnight tells us all we need to know here".
