The Red Devils’ boss wants the England striker and £60m target Alvaro Morata leading his attack next season
Mourinho feels United should pay whatever it takes to get back-to-back Golden Boot winner Kane
Jose Mourinho wants his Manchester United bosses to get £100million Spurs star Harry Kane … and ignore Cristiano Ronaldo.
Old Trafford boss Mourinho has made it clear he would prefer a move for striker Kane rather than an attempt to bring Ronaldo back to Manchester.
The 32-year-old Real Madrid forward has been linked with a return to previous club United since vowing to quit Spain after becoming involved in a tax row, and their executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was looking at signing off a £100m-plus deal for the Portuguese World Player of the Year.
But now that it appears Ronaldo could be staying at the Bernabeu, Mourinho has urged his employers to make Tottenham an offer they can’t refuse for long-time target Kane — as well as trying to close a £60m deal with Real Madrid for forward Alvaro Morata .
Tottenham insist they will not listen to any bids for their star player, but a mind-blowing offer of Ronaldo proportions – in the region of £100m – would certainly give chairman Daniel Levy food for thought.
Mourinho is a huge fan of Kane’s, and believes United should pay whatever it takes to land him.
The ‘Special One’ believes a strike-force of the England international and Morata would enhance the Reds’ Premier League title ambitions more than Ronaldo’s arrival in the twilight of his fellow countryman’s career.
Mourinho is also pushing for United to conclude a deal for Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic as he looks to make an impact in the Premier League next season. Chelsea anchorman Nemanja Matic is also on his radar.
