Kane 'desperate' to join Man United after what he's seen from Cavani - pundit

Harry Kane will relish the prospect of joining Manchester United after watching Edinson Cavani this season. 

That’s according to former West Ham hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Kane’s future.

On Monday, Football Insider revealed Man United have stepped up their bid to prise Kane from Tottenham this summer.

The club’s chief scout Jim Lawlor was at Elland Road last weekend specifically to watch Kane in action as Spurs lost 3-1 to Leeds United.

This comes after this site revealed Kane is ‘hell bent’ on leaving Tottenham this summer.

The Red Devils’ current forward, Cavani, has been in excellent form of late, scoring five goals in his last five outings.

McAvennie claims Kane will look at the chances Cavani is getting and will believe he can double his tally of 15 Man United goals if he makes the switch to Old Trafford.

“He’ll look at Manchester United and Cavani,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Cavani has been magnificent for them. He [Kane] will think if Man United can create chances for him like they do for Cavani, he’ll get 35 or 40 goals a season. 

“The movement of both players is world-class. They’re both great strikers. Kane will know he can score goals for Man United. 

“They’re still one of the biggest clubs in the world. He’s desperate to win a couple of trophies and he can do it there. 

“After watching Cavani, Kane will think he can double what he’s done this season.”

This week, Manchester United announced Cavani has signed a one-year contract extension.

He joined the club on a 12-month contract after leaving PSG last summer.
