Manchester United  have decided not to make a move for England captain Harry Kane  this summer and will instead fight for the signing of Dortmund striker Erling Haaland next year.

Kane, 27, has hinted that he wants to leave Tottenham this summer and will discuss his future with club chairman Daniel Levy during the off season.

The England International is currently valued at around £150million and that would comfortably make him the British transfer record during a time of financial turmoil at Old Trafford.

United have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic causing them to lose around £150m in revenue and it is not certain if the club will welcome back fans to full capacity next season.

Solskjaer is keen on signing Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho but buying the midfielder would require most of United’s summer budget, leaving no room left for a move for Kane.

The Daily Mail therefore claim United will abandon their interest in Kane and will instead try to sign Haaland in 2022.

The 20-year-old Norwegian finished this season as the top scorer in the Champions League and is valued by Dortmund at £130 million.

But, with a clause in his contract with the Bundesliga giants means that he can walk away for around £62 million in 2022 and United will battle Manchester City, Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain to sign him.

United’s trump card in the race is Haaland’s relationship with Solskjaer. The United manager gave Haaland his first-team debut at the Molde at the age of 16 and the pair remain in close contact
