Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drops Harry Kane transfer hint after Edinson Cavani U-turn

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he can't rule out signing a new striker at Manchester United this summer – despite Edinson Cavani penning a one-year extension.

Harry Kane rocked Tottenham this week when he reportedly told the club he wants to leave in the summer transfer window.

The England international has been linked with a £100million-plus move to Manchester City, but both United and Chelsea are keen on the forward and remain linked with him.

Cavani has been sensational up top for United this season and was on target with a spectacular effort in the Red Devils' 1-1 draw with relegated Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The Uruguayan was looking to leave United at the end of this campaign but has U-turned on his decision and put pen to paper on another year with the Red Devils.

Despite this boost for Solskjaer, the United boss wouldn't rule out a move for a new striker if the right one became available.

"We're looking to strengthen the squad, of course," said Solskjaer. "There are many, many, many things you have to consider when you put a squad together.

"I'm not saying that if Eddie [Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won't come in."

He added: "No, of course, I can't [rule out signing a new striker]. Yes, Edinson signed but how many good strikers have we had at this club and I can't say we're not signing a striker.

"Of course not because we're building, we're working towards a better squad. We're top three two years on the bounce but we are nowhere where we want to be.

"So, hopefully, we end up with a stronger squad when we start next season and be more consistent and challenge the ones in front of us."

Kane has been linked with a move to United for some time and the striker looks certain to leave Spurs at the end of the season.

But Solskjaer was reluctant to throw United's hat into the ring just yet.

Solskjaer said: "I can't talk about players at other teams.

"You know me well enough, I don't think that's very respectful of any team. There are loads of good players out there – I could say [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo are interesting, but I can't talk about them, you know that."
