Manchester United Identify Tottenham Hotspur Player As Ronaldo Replacement

Manchester United Identify Tottenham Hotspur Player As Ronaldo Replacement

Manchester United are planning a stunning bid to buy Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane to fill the vacuum created by Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Old Trafford, according to a recent report from the Manchester Evening News. 

Kane has been highlighted as a long-term solution for Erik Ten Hag’s desire for a true striker in the attacking department.

As the main point of Tottenham’s offense, Kane has had a stellar start to this season, putting in a number of outstanding performances. He has scored thirteen goals and contributed three assists in twenty-one outings across several competitions for the Lilywhites.

The attacking talent from Walthamstow has been dependable and steady in the Premier League, averaging 3.9 shots, 0.9 dribbles, and 1.9 critical passes per game.

However, he must find a way to enhance his ball distribution given his 73.1% pass success percentage in the English Premier League (stats via  whoscored).

Kane is unquestionably one of the top attackers in Europe, since he is both a lethal finisher inside the penalty area and a skilled long-range shooter.

The English international is a goal threat and has the ability to position himself to create a couple solid chances.

The 1.88-meter-tall striker can easily overpower his opponents in the air, and his sturdy body allows him to hold off defenders long enough to land a few blows.

The 29-year-old forward is also capable of making a few key passes to set up his teammates near the goal. He is in his prime and has been in excellent form recently, so a move away from North London could increase his prospects of winning additional trophies.

However, the Red Devils are far behind the other Premier League powerhouses, and it might be argued that staying at Tottenham would be preferable to heading to Old Trafford at this time.

If he does not sign a contract extension sooner rather than later, United would undoubtedly be in prime position to sign him. The next summer transfer window, when the England captain’s contract expires, would determine the outcome.
