Man United captain wants 31-goal Tottenham star at Old Trafford

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is believed to have told Louis van Gaal to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 21-year-old has been a standout performer for his side this season, scoring 31 goals in all competitions and was also rewarded with his first England cap.

United are currently in the market for another striker after rejecting a permanent move for Monaco loanee Radamel Falcao.

The future of Robin van Persie as well as Javier Hernandez is still in doubt as Van Gaal begins planning to add more attacking options in the summer window.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be a huge fan of the England international and will be doing all he can to ensure his stay at White Hart Lane.

However, there is speculation that the Red Devils are plotting a £40million bid to acquire his services, a value that may sway the club to consider his sale.
