After a half-hearted attempt at a bid for Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United have chosen to look within their own country in Harry Kane.
The move has caught the entire football fraternity by shock, as several bookies have now slashed down their odds for a Harry Kane move to Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho is looking for attacking options to fill his team with, and Kane is next in the long list of prospective players for the Red Devils.
An attempt to move for the 23-year-old striker would set back the Reds by several million pounds, though. With Spurs reluctant to let go of their star striker, United may have to break the world transfer record fee, and they would also have to please Kane himself with a substantial wage increase to allure him to Old Trafford.

Him scoring 29 goals last season and bagging the Golden Boot award, along with Jose’s willingness to bid over £100 million caused Ladbrokes to drop from 20/1 odds to an overnight 6/1 odds of Harry Kane joining Manchester United.
