Richard Keys makes bold Man United transfer prediction involving proven striker

Richard Keys is tipping Tottenham striker Harry Kane to end up at Manchester United

Richard Keys is fully expecting Manchester United to make a transfer bid to try and sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur.

The England international has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top forwards in recent seasons and was voted as the PFA young player of the year in 2016.

Kane finished as the Premier League’s joint top scorer last season as the Lilywhites challenged for the title for much of the campaign.

The forward is understood to be in talks with Tottenham about extended his current deal with the White Hart Lane club.

However, former Sky Sports presenter Keys is expecting to see Manchester United make a bold transfer bid to try and sign the striker.

Writing in his personal blog, Keys said: “Manchester United are aware and want Kane. We’ve all read those stories – and what United want they generally get.

“Unless Spurs come up with a proper deal – my view is Kane will soon be at Old Trafford. And I mean soon.

“If that happened I don’t think it would be too long before Pochettino baled out.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday with a home clash against West Ham United.
