Man Utd chief Ed Woodward could lose Harry Kane transfer race to Man City due to Juventus

Manchester United have been linked with a blockbuster summer swoop for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Manchester United could miss out on Harry Kane to Manchester City because of Juventus, according to reports. The Tottenham striker is considering a mega move in the summer transfer window to win trophies in the remainder of his career.

The England captain is also wanted by Serie A giants Juve and Pep Guardiola’s City.

But if Maurizio Sarri’s side opt out of the race to sign Kane, they will instead target another Premier League striker.

That man would be City forward Gabriel Jesus.

And that could in turn lead to Guardiola going all out to sign Kane from Tottenham and beating United to his signature.

Tuttosport claim Juventus have made the 26-year-old their top target for the summer.

And they are prepared to spend a massive €200million on his transfer fee and wages to get the deal over the line.

But if Kane is not interested in a switch to Turin they will go after Jesus instead who has been rotated with Sergio Aguero at the Etihad this season.

The Italian reports claim Juventus are leading the race for the Spurs striker though.

They say with United’s lack of performance in recent years and City’s Champions League ban, Kane could make the move to Italy.

But Jesus is seen as a good alternative if a deal for Kane doesn’t materialise.

United are looking to strengthen this summer with the England striker potentially in their plans.

In recent days it has emerged Kane could become available and he could quit Tottenham this summer.

United chief Ed Woodward is also targeting Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

But with coronavirus halting all football for now, it is unclear whether the Red Devils will have a chance to continue their good run and push for Champions League qualification.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are on an 11-match unbeaten run with nine wins in that period.

After the announcement of no Premier League football until April 3 at the earliest the Norwegian sent a message to fans.

He said: “I would like to thank our fans for their tremendous support so far this season and we look forward to welcoming them back to Old Trafford as soon as is safely possible.”
