Manchester United have once again been linked to Tottenham sensation Harry Kane in the latest tabloid news cycle and it’s easy to see why.

LISTEN TO MANCHESTER UNITED VS ARSENAL PREVIEW
The Premier League giants are watching developments closely as they are looking for a new big-name striker at Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old has recently recovered from injury and looks sharp already. He is said to want a new contract with a salary in excess of £100,000 per week to double his current deal.
But even that level of salary is comparatively small in relation to the pay of other top stars in the league. So one would imagine that Tottenham will be more than happy to cough up.
But the likes of Manchester United, City and Chelsea can pay their top stars up to £250,000 per week or more so if Kane did move to a Premier League rival he could immediately expect to earn more.
But in a football world that is ever more driven by money it would be nice to think that there is still some sense of loyalty from players.
Kane is clearly at his favourite club and only money could take him elsewhere. But if he is offered a deal of around £100k a week at Spurs, what more could he possibly want?
Manchester United will surely be on the prowl for another top striker over the next few windows as Wayne Rooney’s power look to be in terminal decline and Zlatan is 35.
