Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has urged the club’s senior officials to ignore any chase for Cristiano Ronaldo, but instead break the world transfer record for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
Kane, who has won the Premier League’s top scorer award for the last two seasons, is likely to cost United around £100million.
Mourinho wants to pair the England striker with Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata in his attack next season.
Tottenham insist they will not listen to any bids for their star player, but it is believed that such a huge bid, would surely make chairman Daniel Levy have a conversation.
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 and Champions League next season.
