Manchester United can take advantage of Tottenham Hotspur’s apparent interest in Dean Henderson to pull off a sensational swap for Harry Kane.
Spurs will need to find a replacement for first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is now 36 years old.
According to ESPN, the North London club is keeping an eye on Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is presently on loan at Nottingham Forest.
Henderson’s future with United is presently undetermined after he accused the club of deceiving him over his playing time.
Last season, the Englishman only made three appearances as David de Gea’s backup.
Considering Spurs’ interest in Henderson, United may include the goalie in a deal to entice Daniel Levy to part ways with Kane.
Spurs are expected to demand a fee of approximately £100 million, but by incorporating Henderson, United want to reduce the amount of money they must pay.
Kane’s future at Tottenham is currently uncertain following yet another trophyless season.
With only one year left on his contract, Kane could decide to depart from the club this summer.
Man United in hunt for a striker
The Red Devils are looking for a new striker this summer, with Wout Weghorst’s term unlikely to be extended and Anthony Martial failing to secure a spot in Erik ten Hag’s starting lineup owing to injuries, which might see him sold this summer.
Now, according to reports, one of the candidates being considered by United is England captain and Tottenham Hotspur record striker Harry Kane, who will be out of contract in 2024 and might be on the move this summer.
The England captain previously spoke to the Evening Standard saying, “There’s not been much talk if I’m totally honest.”
“I’m sure they’ll be conversations over the coming months but, to be honest, I’m just focused on this season and doing my best for the team.”
“I know there’s going to be rumours, a lot of talk and speculation about my future but I’m just focused on what I can do.”
Kane further added saying: “Of course, I still want to win trophies for Tottenham Hotspur. That’s been my goal since I started playing first-team football with them. It hasn’t happened. I’ve been open about [how I feel about] that but I’ll continue to try to achieve that.”
Thus, a swap plus cash deal between Henderson and Kane could well be on the cards for Manchester United this summer.
