Danny Murphy reckons Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are both heading to Manchester this summer – with one joining City and the other heading to United

Danny Murphy has tipped both Erling Haaland and Harry Kane to make transfers to Manchester clubs this summer.

The two frontmen have enjoyed goal-laden seasons and are being linked with big-money switches from Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

Kane and Haaland will be two of the most in-demand players this summer

Spurs’ Carabao Cup final defeat to Man City on Sunday has once again led to calls for Kane to quit the north London club in order to enhance his own personal ambition to win trophies.

Meanwhile, Haaland – who hit two against Wolfsburg on Saturday to take his Bundesliga tally to 25 for the season – is also a target for several clubs despite Dortmund insistent he will stay for at least one more campaign.

Murphy believes both strikers are destined for Manchester clubs – though he is unsure which of them will join City and who will move to United.

“I think the desire from the two Manchester clubs to get to the next level. I think £100m [for Kane] from United or City is doable.

“I think Haaland will go to one and Kane will go to the other.”

Spurs will be desperate to keep Kane but Murphy says he’ll go if he makes it clear to chairman Daniel Levy he wants out.

“Depending on the mentality of the footballer, if Harry Kane goes hard enough to Daniel Levy, he’ll get his move,” Murphy added.

Murphy puts Kane in the £100m bracket, but Simon Jordan reckons the fee could be a sticking point as he claimed interested clubs may not be prepared to pay anywhere near that amount.

He said: “I would think Daniel would look towards £100m. I don’t think the market will lend itself to £100m, I think the market would lend itself to £60m plus add-ons.”

Haaland, meanwhile, has been linked with a big-money summer move to every top club in Europe after scoring a staggering 38 goals in 41 Bundesliga matches since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020.

Man City, as well as United, are believed to be one of the many clubs interested in signing Haaland, who could be a replacement for soon-to-be out of contract star Sergio Aguero.

Pep Guardiola admitted he was a a big fan of the Norway international, who needed just 14 games to become the fastest player to score 20 Champions League goals earlier this season.
