MANCHESTER UNITED are expected to spend big this summer as they look to bridge the gap on champions Manchester City.
Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Declan Rice have all been heavily linked with moves but they are just three of FIVE big names on United's radar.
LaLiga stars Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier are also said to be appealing to the Red Devils with fans hoping club chiefs will back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Having told Tottenham he wants to leave many have suggested Kane could be the missing piece of the jigsaw as United look to win their first Prem title since 2013.
The Tottenham star, 27, has told the club that he wants a summer move to finally bag some major silverware.
Manchester City and Chelsea have been linked with a bid, along with United.
The Athletic report on enquiries for the striker landing from both Manchester clubs as they gauge the likelihood of a deal.
SunSport revealed this week that both teams are willing to put an £80million, five-year contract on the table if a bid is accepted.
Tottenham are said to have not completely dismissed selling Kane with a fee of £120million thought to be enough to secure his services.
But United are also said to be considering throwing Anthony Martial or Jesse Lingard in as part of a swap deal.

Juventus superstar Ronaldo is also being linked with an emotional return to Old Trafford with United staff said to be monitoring the situation.
Solskjaer is also said to have got in touch with his former team-mate about a potential move.
Ronnie's future hangs in the balance and with Juve on the brink of failing to qualify for the Champions League an exit could be on the cards.
West Ham ace Rice is said to have asked Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw what life at Old Trafford is like with the England ace said to be United's No 1 target at holding midfield.
But the Reds are unlikely to swoop if Paul Pogba stays and Rice is also very settled at West Ham with the Irons on the brink of Europa League qualification.
United are also said to have stepped up their interest in Atletico Madrid ace Trippier as back up for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
According to The Athletic, Tripper 'is minded to return to England in the summer'.
The 30-year-old is almost certain to be picked by Gareth Southgate for England's Euro 202 squad.
And Trippier could also end up with a LaLiga winners medal next week.
Atletico are desperate to keep Trippier and want to offer him a new contract, as his existing one expires next summer.
But the former Spurs and Burnley man appears keen on a Premier League return.
Trippier's LaLiga colleague Varane is edging closer to the exit door at Real Madrid after refusing to commit his long term future to the club.
World Cup winner Varane has just a year left on his contract at the Bernabeu and has yet to agree new terms.
It could force the cash-strapped side to sell this summer or risk losing him for nothing.
With a market value of around £61million, Los Blancos know his fee will help ease financial woes caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
United have been linked with the Frenchman for months and are in the market for a star to partner Maguire.
