Manchester United are still keen on signing Harry Kane despite the striker holding talks with Tottenham over a new deal, says reports.
Kane was a target for United in the summer transfer window, with talk of a £50 Million bid being lined up for his services.
No deal happened, and Spurs have since moved to open negotiation over a new contract, but Goal.com revealed that United are still keen on the striker. The Red Devils have retained their interest ahead of the January transfer window; the striker has scored 10 goals in 19 games for Spurs this season.
United are shortage of options in the attacking options; Dutch striker Robin Van Persie was sold in the transfer window to Turkish giants Fernabache, while Mexican international striker; Javier Hernandez was loaned to Real Madrid before being sold to German side Bayern Leverkusen.
Manchester United signed French teenage sensation Anthony Martial from Monaco for an initial fee of £36 Million, making him the most expensive teenager in world football. The French man started his campaign at Old Trafford like a house on fire, scoring in each of his first three games but has gone relatively quiet since he last scored in the UEFA Champions league against CSKA Moscow.
The only other striker available for United apart from Wayne Rooney was James Wilson, who has now been shipped to Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion for the remainder of the season.
Chelsea are also keen on Harry Kane, as rumours emerged that the Blues are willing to offload Diego Costa in the summer after a spat with Jose Mourinho. Kane would be a valuable addition to United but it would be hard for Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy to strike a deal for Kane in January.
