Man Utd to copy Liverpool transfer tactic over Harry Kane as Erik ten Hag plots massive move for the goal banging striker.

Manchester United may decide to adopt a Liverpool-style acquisition strategy in their pursuit of Harry Kane.The Tottenham striker is expected to decline an offer for a new contract in north London, according to the Telegraph, which reported on Monday that United have started looking into what it would take to recruit Kane.This summer, United intends to make a bid for Kane in an effort to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who abruptly left the team in November.There are only 12 months left on the England captain’s current contract with Tottenham, and despite the fact that his advisers have been silent, the Telegraph’s “Tottenham sources” suggest there is little possibility the striker will decide to sign another deal with the north London club in the summer.

Indeed, the publication identified that United making a serious offer for Kane is a “nightmare scenario” for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who will be considering whether to sell the forward this summer or let him leave for free at the end of next season.

Man Utd’s pursuit of Kane While it is unlikely Kane will commit to new terms with Tottenham, United are reportedly aware of how difficult Levy will be to strike a deal with.

The 61-year-old is a notoriously tough negotiator and should they be engaged in a transfer saga the entire summer, they risk the possibility of missing out on other targets such as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.

In turn, the Old Trafford club have reportedly started work now to try to establish the best way to make an early move for Kane.Should Levy dig his heels in and be prepared to risk the England record scorer’s contract running down, United would have the time to turn their attention to Osimhen.

Indeed, there are parallels between the transfer tactic United employed with Kane, to that Liverpool chose in their pursuit of Jude Bellingham.While the midfielder was the Anfield club’s number one transfer target, it emerged earlier this month the club had pulled out of a deal for the 19-year-old.Liverpool were concerned that should a deal drag on this summer they could miss out on several of their other targets.
