Manchester United can use Tottenham Hotspur’s apparent interest in Dean Henderson to strike a spectacular swap deal for Harry Kane.
With first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris now aged 36, Spurs will soon have to pick out a replacement for their number one.
According to ESPN, the North London club are keeping tabs on United stopper Henderson, who is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest.
Henderson’s future with United is currently unknown after he accused the club of misleading him about the amount of game time he would get.
Last season, the Englishman made a mere three appearances as David de Gea’s backup.
With Spurs’ interest in Henderson, this could pave the way for United to include the goalkeeper in a deal to tempt Daniel Levy to part ways with Kane.
It has been reported that Spurs will be looking to get a transfer fee of around £100 million but by including Henderson, United will hope to lower the cash they have to fork out.
Kane’s future at Spurs is currently up in the air after yet another disappointing trophyless season.
With just one year remaining in his contract, this summer could be the time Kane decides to leave the club.
The England captain previously spoke about his contract situation, he told the Evening Standard: “There’s not been much talk if I’m totally honest.
“I’m sure they’ll be conversations over the coming months but, to be honest, I’m just focused on this season and doing my best for the team.
“I know there’s going to be rumours, a lot of talk and speculation about my future but I’m just focused on what I can do.”
Kane added: “Of course, I still want to win trophies for Tottenham Hotspur. That’s been my goal since I started playing first-team football with them. It hasn’t happened. I’ve been open about [how I feel about] that but I’ll continue to try to achieve that.”
Will Kane leave Spurs in the summer? Only time will tell.
