Manchester United are said to have identified two replacements for Harry Kane if the England and Tottenham Hotspur captain does not want to move to Old Trafford..
According to reports on Friday, Kane may be interested in a summer switch to the Theatre of Dreams. His current Spurs contract expires in 2024, and it appears that the 29-year-old could be available on a cheaper deal if he does not wish to stay in North London.
However, if United are unable to sign Kane, the Daily Mirror understands that Erik ten Hag will pursue two other strikers instead. Benjamin Sesko of RB Salzburg is the first name on their list of possible replacements..
The 19-year-old Slovenian is set to join RB Leipzig in the summer, but the Bundesliga club appears to be open to making a quick profit on the forward. Sesko has seven goals in 25 appearances in Austria this season.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli is reportedly United’s other back-up option. The 24-year-old has been a standout performer for the Serie A side this season, scoring 13 goals in 18 appearances.
Sky Sports, on the other hand, Sven Westerschulze, a German journalist, has ruled out Borussia Dortmund making a loan offer for Anthony Elanga. The 20-year-form old’s this season has not been as strong as it was under Ralf Rangnick, with the Swede scoring just one goal..
A loan spell away from Old Trafford could be as beneficial for Elanga as it has been for Amad, and recent reports suggest that the Bundesliga giants may be interested in temporarily bringing the winger in. Westerschulze, on the other hand, took to Twitter to dispel these rumors.
“Contrary to many rumors, Anthony Elanga is not a problem for Borussia Dortmund,” he tweeted. According to Sky Sports News, a signing of the winger from Manchester United is highly unlikely.
Even a loan is not an option for Borussia Dortmund, and that will not change.
