Manchester United are confident of having the most potent strike force in the Premier League even if they don’t sign Harry Kane this summer, reports Dailymail.

United maintain an interest in Kane but will not pay even close to the £200million world record fee that would persuade Tottenham chief Daniel Levy to sell the England captain.

United believe Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood have the potential to become one of the most lethal forward lines in Europe even if they can’t sign Kane or £100m-rated Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

The trio have scored a total of 47 goals between them so far this season – two less than Liverpool’s vaunted attack of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino but from 20 fewer games.

United believe 22-year-old Rashford, who has recovered from a back fracture during the two-month football shutdown, will be a Ballon d’Or contender if his progress continues at Old Trafford.

Club insiders maintain that Greenwood, still only 18, will have developed into an established first-team player in 12 months’ time.

And the United hierarchy are confident Martial can still be a huge success in England having refused to consider selling the erratic Frenchman. The 24-year-old underlined his ability with four goals in the final six games before the coronavirus crisis.

United want to combine the three forwards in a fluid, interchangeable attack based on speed that would benefit from the creative spark of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

Kane is a more traditional No 9 who offers a different option. He cast doubt over his future in March by saying that he would not stay at Tottenham ‘for the sake of it’.

United are certainly interested in exploring the opportunity of signing Kane and Sancho, but United chief Ed Woodward has already warned that the figures being talked about are totally unrealistic as football comes to terms with the effects of the pandemic.

‘I cannot help feeling that speculation around transfers of individual players for hundreds of millions of pounds this summer seems to ignore the realities that face the sport,’ said Woodward last month.

United would also like to secure a permanent move for Odion Ighalo, whose loan from Shanghai Shenhua runs out at the end of this month, but the Chinese club’s demand for a fee in excess of £20m is more than they want to pay for the 30-year-old Nigeria striker.
