Chelsea ready to rival Man United to signing of Tottenham striker

Chelsea are plotting a shock move to sign Manchester United target Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur next summer, Daily Mail reports.

The 22-year-old was heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford ahead of the current campaign, but could now face heavy competition from the Premier League champions.

It is likely that scouts will be present to watch the striker when his side face the Blues at White Hart Lane this weekend.

The future of current forward Diego Costa has been put in doubt following a number of disciplinary issues as well as a recent bust-up with Jose Mourinho during the 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday.

Spurs will be doing all they can to retain the services of their star attacker given that they have already issued a hands-off warning to the Red Devils during the summer window.

Despite only signing a new contract which could keep him at the club until at least 2020 earlier this year, he also caught the eye of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich given his recent form in front of goal.
