Kane featured for Tottenham for the first time this campaign in their 1-0 EPL win over Wolverhampton Wanderers having missed out on their first two games of the season.

However, former Red Devils' captain Gary Neville appears to have urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sell these four players; Anthony Martial, [Daniel] James, [Juan] Mata, [Jesse] Lingard to fund Kane's mega-million deal as reported by The Mirror quoting Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

If they succeed, they would have succeeded in breaking the Premier League transfer record currently held by City after landing Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for £100 million this month.

The 46-year-old insisted that his former club could do without the above-named players and the proceeds from their sales will help them acquire the services of the Spurs' prolific goalscorer.

Neville further stated that bringing Kane to Old Trafford will help boost United's chances at doing better than the previous seasons after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

What Gary Neville said about Harry Kane

"The guy is available now if you pay £150million - they've got Martial, [Daniel] James, [Juan] Mata, [Jesse] Lingard - we could do without them at the club I think. I personally think Kane coming in would be a differentiator."

The Red Devils started the season on a blistering note after beating Leeds United 5-1 but failed to replicate the form against Southampton as they were held to a 1-1 draw at St. Mary's Stadium on matchday two.

When will Man City make another bid for Harry Kane earlier reported that Manchester City will not give up their chase for England international Harry Kane in spite of Tottenham Hotspur rejecting their initial £100 million bid.

The Premier League champions are back for the 28-year-old forward with an improved offer of about £127 million.

City are hoping Kane can replace Sergio Aguero while they also believe the English star's inclusion in their squad might help them break their Champions League jinx.
