Manchester United plan to bid early on Harry Kane in hopes of a smooth negotiation with Tottenham Hotspur.

Kane is atop Erik ten Hag's short list for a new striker.

Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Rasmus Højlund of Atalanta are also on the list, but United have been quoted €150 million for Osimhen. 

Daniel Levy of Spurs is considered a tough negotiator and he could feel pressure to keep Kane. Ten Hag is said to be obsessed with Kane.

United is also interested in signing Mason Mount, who is increasingly likely to leave Chelsea.
