Glazers Could Sign Harry Kane In A £90m Deal To Appease Fans

Manchester United is not the happiest of boardrooms at the moment.

Anger from the supporters, which has been seething for a while now came to a head ahead of the initially scheduled derby against Liverpool. However, after a contingent of fans stormed Old Trafford, the anti-Glazer sentiment was made evident.

This has been the case for far too long and the supporters are nearly unanimous in their demand for the American family to sell the club.

As such, the ball is certainly in the owner’s court now and they seem to be eager on placating in order to do a measure of damage control.

According to the Sun, Manchester United may sanction a £90 million bid to acquire Harry Kane in the summer. The top striker is in excellent form, a consistent result from several seasons and is also thought to be on Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s wish-list.

The issue for such a deal may fall under Daniel Levy’s purview who is reportedly not keen on selling to a Premier League club and values the 27-year-old Kane at an astonishing £170 million.

Further, that figure is not likely to hold much value. Instead, United’s offer could tempt the London side if they wish to stock up their coffers for a potential summer rebuild and if the English striker himself wishes to make a move to Manchester.

However, it currently seems unlikely that this move will placate fans who incidentally blame the Glazers precisely for spending only when the commercial interests seem apt. If anything, this rumour seems more like a last-ditch effort in response to what has arguably been a radical mobilization on part of the supporters.

How this all plays out will be crucial and it will be interesting to see who will be at the helm of the great club to make such a choice come summer.
