Manchester United’s transfer activity has been headline news today.
The Red Devils finally completed the £25m signing of Dutch speedster Memphis Depay on a four-year deal.
United were also linked with a £50m bid for Tottenham Hotspur and England forward Harry Kane.
Although the Depay deal was officially completed and the Kane talk is just gossip at this stage, it was United’s potential move for the Spurs man that got the bigger reaction from fans on Twitter.
Many acknowledged that Kane was a fine striker, but the general consensus was that £50m is an outrageous valuation.
However, some were in favour of the proposed deal.
Check out the best reaction below…
Following the recent reports coming out of Manchester about our interest in Harry Kane, it would be a gamble worth taking.

Before: £50 million got you Zinedine Zidane or Luis Figo. Now: £50 million gets you Raheem Sterling or Harry Kane. pic.twitter.com/cVOqdPa6fN

Harry Kane is from Walthamstow, he's a Spurs fan since birth and I highly doubt he would perform for United like he has done for us! #THFC

No need for Harry Kane tbh, chicharito is a a capable 2nd striker. We need a world class striker like benzema, cavani, lacuzette @ManUtd
