Manchester United to sign Ghanaian superstar as their Harry Kane Plan B: report

February 28, 2023

Manchester United are ready to move to a highly-rated Ghanaian forward to bolster their frontline this summer – unless Harry Kane can be persuaded to join

Manchester United could sign a promising Ghanaian talent to spearhead their attack next season, depending on other targets.

Nigerian hitman Victor Osimhen is in the crosshairs for Manchester United – and the Napoli star remains a priority(opens in new tab) – though there is a historic interest in Harry Kane. The England captain could well be available this summer, too, after breaking the all-time scoring record for Spurs: Kane’s contract expires in 2024.

While there are a number of high-profile targets that United may look to land in Erik ten Hag’s second transfer window, however, one more realistic target may be for the 20-time champions to fish once more in a pond that has delivered recent success. harry Kane has long been a target for Manchester United – and could be again this summer

Ten Hag is a big fan of Mohammed Kudus, according to the Manchester Evening News(opens in new tab), and may yet snare another Ajax star after their busy summer last year.

United signed Antony and Lisandro Martinez in Ten Hag’s first window for a combined £135 million from the Amsterdammers, with the Dutch boss having worked with the pair previously.

Kudus is capable of operating through the centre as a striker, as an attacking midfielder, even deeper in midfield or potentially on either flank. The Ghanaian is incredibly versatile and with Ten Hag using the likes of Bruno Fernandes on the right and Wout Weghorst behind Marcus Rashford recently, it’s clear that he values positional rotations.

Whoever United sign up front will have to be strong enough in a variety of positions to cope with tactical shifts such as this – and Kudus fits the mould. The 22-year-old is creative, offers a ferocious shot and impressed in the Champions League group stages as well as at the World Cup with the Black Stars.
