Manchester United are increasingly willing to miss out on Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
United are keen to bring in a new striker and Kane has one year remaining on his current deal as their main target.
However, according to The Times, Eric ten Hager’s team is not confident of signing Kane.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has not indicated he is open to selling Kane, who is also being eyed by Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
United could therefore turn their attention to other targets and may consider bringing in two strikers – an experienced player and a youngster, with Atalanta’s Rasmus Hoylund one of the latter’s considerations one.

Heulund, 20, has scored five goals in four appearances for Denmark.
Kane, meanwhile, has scored 30 Premier League goals for Tottenham this season, despite his side’s struggles.
He is 47 goals shy of Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record.
Although they have Marcus Rashford, United need another striker, with Anthony Martial scoring just six league goals this season and Walter Weghorst playing from Burnley. After joining, Lease failed to play a big role.
Manchester United are closer to bringing in a midfielder as they have agreed personal terms with Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
Meanwhile, Declan Rice is more likely to join Arsenal despite Manchester United’s interest. United are unlikely to be able to afford Rice as well as Mount and a striker or two.
