Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t want Manchester United to spend big on Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils boss is against Manchester United blowing their summer budget on the England international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that the Norwegian head coach believes that Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is just as good as the Tottenham centre-forward.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is planning to stick with Rashford despite talk of Manchester United spending a club-record fee on the 26-year-old Spurs striker.

The Sun go on to reveal that the Manchester United manager believes that Anthony Martial is also another genuine option at centre-forward so Kane isn’t needed by the Red Devils.

The report concludes that Solskjaer is wary of blocking Mason Greenwood’s path to the first-team following the 18-year-old’s impressive cameo performances this term.

Rashford has scored 13 times in the Premier League this season to produce his best return for a top-flight campaign since bursting into the Manchester United team under Louis van Gaal.

France international Martial has netted 16 times in 34 games in all competitions this term to rekindle his best form under the Norwegian head coach.
