In a blockbuster transfer which would rival that of Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus, reports emerging on Friday afternoon suggested that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane may be on the verge of a move to Manchester United.
Kane, who was top scorer at this summer’s World Cup, is widely thought of as one of the best strikers in world football, with deadly form for his club and country over the last few years.
And The Sun have reported that a flurry of bets have been placed on Kane moving to Old Trafford in the last few hours, sparking suggestions that a deal may be announced at any time.
Some bookies, like SkyBet, have reportedly slashed odds of a move to 1/10.
From The Sun:
HARRY KANE is edging closer to a sensational move to Manchester United, according to the bookies.
The Tottenham striker’s odds to join Jose Mourinho’s side have been slashed from 33/1 to just 4/1 in rapid time.
Kane, 24, has been previously linked with big-money moves to both Real Madrid and United following his remarkable goalscoring exploits.
Both Betfair and Paddy Power are offering odds of 4/1 for Kane to be in a United shirt once the transfer window shuts.
This is following a flurry of bets from people who believe the England international is on the move.
Boss Jose Mourinho has already vented his frustrations at the lack of transfer business in the red half of Manchester.
