Odds tumble on Harry Kane joining Manchester United - bookies

The Sunday tabloid claim that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho does not want Cristiano Ronaldo but prefers to sign Harry Kane.

And with Cristiano Ronaldo having become disenfranchised with life in Spain following a tax row, Manchester United's executive vice-chairman was set to sign off on a £100m deal for footballing royalty.

And with Champions League football back on the agenda next season after winning the Europa League, Mourinho wants further reinforcements and is more than happy to splash the cash again to get who he wants.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly interested in bringing the Tottenham Hotspur striker to Old Trafford, and the bookies have responded by slashing odds on Kane joining Man United to just 6/1 from 20/1.

For the second successive season, Kane finished up with the Premier League's Golden Boot but a move for the 23-year-old would be problematic for United.

A striker is a top priority for United after the decision not to renew Zlatan Ibrahimovic's contract.

The British source state that the former Chelsea boss wants Kane to partner current Real Madrid center forward Alvaro Morata in his attack next season.

The Frenchman enjoyed a stellar first season with the club before struggling previous year.

Arguably, Ronaldo could work with players like Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to create a better front-line but the Portuguese striker himself has managed to return to his blistering form due to Zinedine Zidane's strategy of letting him take adequate rest and utilizing him only in big matches.

Tottenham insist they will not listen to any bids for their star player, but it is believed that such a huge bid, would surely make chairman Daniel Levy have a conversation.
