Mourinho targets blockbuster deal for Spurs star ahead of Man United arrival

Jose Mourinho has identified Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane as his first major target should takeover at Manchester United, according to ESPN.

Speculation is rampant over the axed Chelsea coach, with widespread reports claiming he has already agreed to takeover from Louis van Gaal this summer.

Upon his potential arrival in the summer, the 53-year old tactician is believed to view the England international striker as a key target as he plots his Old Trafford revolution.

Over the last two seasons or so, the 22-year old has emerged as one of the country’s top marksmen as he spearheads the unlikely title challenge in North London.

The Red Devils have struggled for goals all season, despite boasting the likes of England skipper Wayne Rooney and £36.6m sensation Anthony Martial.

Meanwhile, Kane has replicated his excellent form last season after a slow start to the campaign, having notched 21 goals in all competitions.
