Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is ready to put Tottenham Hotspur's resilience to the test, by making an audacious move for 21-year old striker Harry Kane, according to the Daily Mirror.
Woodward has quickly earned a reputation for splashing the cash when it comes to transfer dealings. He has already secured the signings of Juan Mata, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and more since beginning his tenure at Old Trafford after Sir Alex Ferguson's departure in 2013.
Yet the businessman will have to spend again this summer to strengthen the United squad, as they make their comeback in European football next season from a one campaign absence. The Red Devils have already secured the signing of Memphis Depay from Eredivisie Champions, PSV Eindhoven.
The vice-chairman will be hoping to land Kane, who has proven himself to be a prolific striker in the Premier League, scoring a magnificent 30 goals in all competitions for Spurs last season,
United have also reportedly pursued Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Francesc Fabregas since Woodward's reign began, but they turned into fruitless chases. If a deal was to be pulled off, Woodward would be hailed for beating the resolve of Daniel Levy, though it remains to be seen whether or not it is possible.
