Erling Haaland has just forced Man Utd’s transfer hand and Man City must be beaten

Manchester United are desperate to sign a striker with Harry Kane the obvious choice following Erling Haaland’s comments.

The Norway international has indicated he will be respectful of his Borussia Dortmund contract.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should go all out for Kane following Haaland’s declaration.

United will face a tough challenge from Manchester City for the signing of the England striker if he opts to leave Tottenham though.

Kane was once again the Golden Boot winner in the Premier League this season and has indicated it may be time for him to leave Spurs.

Haaland has also been linked with both Manchester clubs.

The 20-year-old has indicated he has no immediate plans to leave Dortmund though.

“Borussia Dortmund say I’m 100 per cent staying this summer? I’ve got a contract with Dortmund so I’ll be respectful,” he told NENT.

He added: “Like I have said before, I’m a big fan of the Champions League and I think everybody knows that.

“It was a relief to secure that spot. It was really important.

“I am a simple guy. When I like something, I just want to have more. When I score a goal, I always chase the next goal.

“I have big dreams. I just won my first major trophy and it was a great feeling. So I want to win trophies.”

Haaland’s comments on trophies will resonate with Solskjaer after United lost the Europa League final on penalties to Villarreal.

Kane netted an incredible 33 goals and provided 17 assists in all competitions this season.

It has made him hot property and in a recent interview, he sparked speculation he could leave Tottenham.

Kane is said to want to challenge for major honours and trophies as well as playing in the Champions League.

He also reportedly wants his future sorted out before the start of Euro 2020 on June 11.

Kane revealed thoughts on his career with former Manchester United star Gary Neville.

“I don’t know, I mean he might want to sell me,” Kane told Neville.

“He might be thinking ‘If I could get £100m for you, then why not?’ Do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next 2 or 3 years.

“I hope we have a good enough relationship. I’ve given the club… well, I’ve been there 16 years of my life. So, I hope that we can have a good honest conversation and see where we are at in that aspect.

“I don’t want to have come to the end of my career and have any regrets,’ he added. “So, I want to be the best that I can be. I’ve said before, I’d never say that I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career. I’d never say that I would leave Spurs.”
