Manchester United missed out on FA Cup glory after they were beaten 2-1 by fierce rivals Manchester City in Saturday’s final. 

A brace from Ilkay Gundogan was enough to give the Citizens victory at Wembley, despite Bruno Fernandes’ first-half penalty briefly drawing United level.

Red Devils manager Erik Ten Hag has enjoyed a superb first season in the hot seat at Old Trafford after winning the Carabao Cup and securing a top-three spot in the Premier League.

However, the Red Devils are looking to boost their attacking options this summer after a relatively uninspiring campaign in front of goal.

Seven teams scored more goals than Ten Hag’s side in the Premier League this season, and United are therefore looking to sign a high-profile striker this summer.

A number of players have been linked with a move to Old Trafford, most notably Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane.

The England captain is yet to win a trophy during his senior career and has therefore been linked with a move away from north London, but it now appears that United could face a huge blow in their pursuit of Kane.

According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid are ready to launch a bid for the Spurs star as they look to replace Karim Benzema.

Kane is the highest goal scorer in Spurs history

The report claims that Daniel Levy would be more willing to allow Kane to join a foreign club, rather than selling him to a direct Premier League rival.

However, the report also states that the Tottenham chairman has placed a price tag of £100m on the striker, although he is also said to be open to discussions over his future.

Kane, 29, is seen as Madrid’s main target to replace Karim Benzema who will leave the Spanish capital this summer, bringing an end to his 14-year spell at the club.

The Englishman has become the record goalscorer for both his club and country in the past year, and he is closing in on Alan Shearer’s Premier League goal record of 260.

However, Kane could be on his way out of north London as he continues to hunt down the first major trophy of his career.

The England captain only has a year remaining on his contract, which means that he could leave Spurs in the summer of 2024 if he does not depart the club this term.

In total, the ex-Millwall loanee has scored 280 goals in 435 matches for Spurs across all competitions.
