Edinson Cavani’s new contract at Manchester United will not stop Harry Kane from joining the club, claims former Premier League striker Dean Windass.
Cavani, when fit, has been a regular for Manchester United this season and has not disappointed when leading that line.
The 34-year-old finished the campaign with 17 goals in all competitions, the most recent coming in the Europa League final defeat against Villarreal, and recently agreed a one-year contract extension with the club.
Do Manchester United need Kane?
Not a priority
For Windass, though, that does not jeopardise United’s chances of landing Kane this summer, with the Premier League outfit already said to have made contact with the England captain’s representatives.
“Even though they’ve signed up Cavani, if they sign Harry Kane, then Cavani will be a squad player,” Windass exclusively told TIF.
“I think initially Cavani was a squad player, but then obviously now, you know, he started to score goals.”
Earlier this month, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to rule out the possibility of a new No.9 being brought to Old Trafford this summer.
Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano recently revealed on his Here We Go podcast (via GiveMeSport) that the Norwegian is set for talks with the club about potential transfer targets, so a move for Kane or another forward still looks to be very much on the cards.
