Manchester United have ‘no chance’ of signing Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer, sources close to the player have claimed. The England international has hinted he’d be open to leaving north London but the Red Devils appear set to look elsewhere. Express Sport now looks at four strikers the club could sign this summer with Kane beyond their reach.
Timo Werner has been widely backed to join Liverpool this summer, with the Germany international shining in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.
But with the Reds putting transfer plans on hold amid the coronavirus crisis, United could swoop in.
Werner has been prolific for Leipzig this season, taking his game to new heights ever since the appointment of Julian Nagelsmann.
The 24-year-old has bagged 21 goals from 25 matches in the Bundesliga alone.
And he’s also found the net four times from eight appearances in the Champions League this season.

It’s emerged Chelsea have first option on Lyon hotshot Moussa Dembele.
But he’s another who could join United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a huge admirer of the France international.
Dembele was being eyed in the summer but, in the end, the Red Devils prioritised transfer deals for Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire.
The Lyon star has scored 16 Ligue 1 goals from 27 appearances this season.
And he’s experienced life in England before with Fulham, where he flourished before joining Celtic.

Raul Jimenez has fuelled talk of a move away by admitting his contract at Wolves has no release clause.
And United could do a lot worse than swooping for the Mexico international, who has scored more goals than their current forwards combined.
Jimenez has been on target nine times in the Europa League from 13 games.
And the 28-year-old has also bagged 13 goals from 29 matches in the Premier League.
Jimenez could be tempted into joining United in order to emulate Javier Hernandez, who impressed there earlier in his career.
It would be sensational.
But given Erling Haaland is the most-promising young striker on the planet, United could move now to save themselves millions in the long run.

But United could use the player’s personal connection with Solskjaer in order to bring him to Old Trafford.
