Manchester United are plotting an audacious £50m bid for Tottenham star Harry Kane, according to the Daily Star.
The Red Devils are struggling in attacking areas this term as skipper Wayne Rooney toils in front of goal and £36.6m teenager Anthony Martial adjusts to life in England.
Meanwhile, Spurs hero Kane has returned to goal scoring ways after a difficult start to the season and is showing the form he did last term, where he notched 31 goals for the White Hart Lane outfit.
It is understood that movers and shakers behind the scenes at Old Trafford consider the 22-year old a more attainable target than likes of Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale.
Reports suggest the club had scouts in attendance to run the rule over the England man against Chelsea, compiling a lengthy dossier about his all-round game.
However, it is thought that even £50m might not be enough to tempt Daniel Levy to sell his prized asset as the club continue to impress under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino.
