MANCHESTER UNITED are now believed to be favorites to sign Tottenham star Harry Kane this summer.

That’s because for­mer Man City suit­ors have made Borus­sia Dort­mund’s Erling Haa­land their No.1 target.

Bild claims Pep Guardi­o­la is no longer in con­tention for Kane, 28, after hav­ing FOUR offers reject­ed by Spurs last year.

Daniel Levy is believed to want at least £160m for his goalscor­ing striker.

And Guardi­o­la will instead be look­ing to beat Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Ger­main to secure Haa­land, who has an active £64million release clause from July.

It means Man Unit­ed are now lead­ing the race alone for Kane, with future con­sul­tant Ralf Rang­nick telling the club they need a new striker.

Mean­while, Edin­son Cavani will leave on a free trans­fer when his con­tract expires.

And Kane is seen as the per­fect man to lead Unit­ed’s line next season.

One thing that could tempt Kane to the The­ater of Dreams is Unit­ed’s inter­est in for­mer Spurs boss Mauri­cio Pochettino.

The Argen­tine is expect­ed to leave PSG this sum­mer and would jump at the chance to return to the Pre­mier League.

Kane is ready to play under Pochet­ti­no again, and Unit­ed could be ready to splash the Eng­land skip­per as they pre­pare a trans­fer war chest.

Bild adds that if Unit­ed miss out on Kane, they could move for Inter Milan’s Lau­taro Mar­tinez instead.

He remains a pri­ma­ry tar­get for rivals Liv­er­pool, despite their cap­ture of Luis Diaz in January.

And Arse­nal are also keep­ing tabs on the Serie A‑winning striker.
