Jose Mourinho wants his Manchester United bosses to ignore Cristiano Ronaldo and get £100m Tottenham star Harry Kane, reports the Sunday Mirror.
Mourinho is understood to favour a move for Harry Kane rather than bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford eight years after he left for Real Madrid.
Ronaldo vowed to quit Spain after being accused of tax evasion but now it appears he could be staying at the Bernabeu.
And, as a result, Mourinho has reportedly instructed the United hierarchy to use the money assigned for Ronaldo to lure Kane to Old Trafford.
For the second successive season, Kane finished up with the Premier League’s Golden Boot but a move for the 23-year-old would be problematic for United.
The striker only signed a new contract in December which keeps him at Spurs until 2022, and the club could therefore command a fee in excess of £100 million.
