Gary Pallister has urged Manchester United to secure the signature of Harry Kane before one of their Premier League rivals gets to him first. 

Kane is rumoured to be keen on calling time on his Tottenham career this summer and has sparked a frenzy between a number of Europe’s biggest clubs as they all try and lure one of the continent’s most lethal forwards to their respective sides. 

Fellow Prem outfits Chelsea and fierce rivals Manchester City have both reportedly registered their interest and made contact with Kane’s entourage. 

Pallister conceded that ‘noisy neighbours’ City are the side most likely to secure Kane’s services, given his recent comments on how much he would love to play alongside Kevin De Bruyne.

Kane described De Bruyne as a “striker’s dream” to play with, but Pallister has claimed it would be a ‘statement’ if United could lure the forward to Old Trafford instead. 

When asked what positions United boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer should look to strengthen in, Pallister, speaking exclusively to the Metro, said: “Listen, Harry Kane is up for grabs, isn’t he? 

“What a statement it would be if Manchester United were able to get hold of him. It seems to me that Man City are favourites, Harry has talked about how he’d love to play with De Bruyne, so we’ve got a good idea of what he’s thinking. 

“But if Manchester United could sign him, what a statement.”

The three-time FA Cup winner went on to claim it is likely his former side will revive their interest in Borussia Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho. 

The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of Sancho, but previous approaches have capitulated over Dortmund’s valuation of the 21-year-old. 

Pallister explained: “The right-side position has been a problem. The only natural fit there at the minute is Mason [Greenwood], but I’m guessing he’ll want to move more centrally in the future.

“The [Jadon] Sancho speculation will probably raise its head again. Also, if there’s a top-class centre half available – someone in the mould of Vincent Kompany or Virgil van Dijk – then I’d be surprised if we weren’t interested there as well.” 

“So I’m sure Ole has his targets. It might be a difficult transfer window due to Covid – we don’t know how much money clubs will have to spend on new signings – but I think those areas are self-explanatory. 

“It’s going to be interesting to watch how the transfer market goes.”
