In Focus: If Kane joined Manchester United, where would it leave Lukaku?

Manchester United are considering a summer swoop for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

What’s the story?

It is not the first time that the Red Devils have been linked to the England international, and it is understandable why.

The 24-year-0ld has been in scintillating form and even ended 2017 as Europe’s top goalscorer.

Kane surpassed the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring 56 goals for club and country last year.

The striker’s form will attract the attention of many clubs, and according to Tuttomercatoweb, United are considering launching a bid in the summer.

The publication adds that Real Madrid are also weighing up a move for Kane.

What would this mean for Lukaku?

A few months ago, the thought of the Belgian being second choice at United would seem unfathomable, but if Kane arrives at Old Trafford, then the forward may have to make way.

Lukaku had a blistering start to his career at the Red Devils following a £75m switch from Everton last summer.

The 24-year-0ld scored 10 goals in his first nine games, but he went through a drought of just one in 12.

Recently, Lukaku has had more joy in attack having found the back of the net four times in nine outings, but the forward is far from his early-season form.

If Kane is on the horizon for United, then their current first-choice striker may have to settle for playing second fiddle.
