Manchester United surrendered a two-goal lead against Sevilla in the Europa League on Thursday night, making the second leg of their quarter-final tie next week even more intriguing. 

The Red Devils found themselves 2-0 up heading into the last ten minutes courtesy of a brace from Marcel Sabitzer, but Erik ten Hag’s side endured a nightmare end to the game.

The Spanish side drew one back thanks to a Tyrell Malacia own goal, before centre-back Lisandro Martinez was forced off with what looked like a serious injury.

Things then got even worse for United in added time as England international Harry Maguire diverted a wayward header past David de Gea and into his own net, drawing Sevilla level.

United will now travel to Seville next week facing a much tougher task than they may have expected in the closing stages of the game.

Despite the disappointing result, it appears that United are leading the race to sign one of Europe’s best strikers.

As reported by The Mirror, The Red Devils are in pole position to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane this summer.

Kane remains a target for both Bayern Munich and Manchester United

The England captain is set to be the subject of significant interest from a number of clubs – including German champions Bayern Munich – but Old Trafford is said to be the player’s most likely destination.

It is claimed that United are the favourites to sign the player as Kane himself is keen to stay put in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old recently surpassed the 200-goal mark in the Premier League and will undoubtedly have his sights set on Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals in the competition.

This season, Kane has also become both Spurs’ and England’s top scorer, and it is claimed that he wants to stay put in England to add to his current tally.

Despite United’s advantage in the race to sign Kane, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be reluctant to sell The Lilywhites’ talisman to a Premier League rival, which could give Bayern a chance of signing the striker.
