Manchester United have also been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspura s star striker Harry Kane even though reports suggest that Daniel Levy is refusing to play ball with Ed Woodward and Louis Van Gaal.

It will be interesting if Manchester United indeed complete the signing of Mario Mandzukic who hasna t the best season with Atletico Madrid after moving from Bayern Munich. Harry Kane on the other hand, if he is available, looks like a much better signing but the fact remains that Tottenham Hotspur would loathe to sell their star academy product to a rival club.
