The Red Devils will look to sign a striker and could take advantage of Kane’s contract situation.
Kane has less than 18 months remaining on his deal but United are still anticipating a tricky pursuit, report the Daily Mail.
That’s because Spurs chief Daniel Levy is renowned as a tough negotiator.
It is believed he will seek around £100million for the England captain, while some reports claim his asking price could be closer to £150m.
Ten Hag reportedly wants a striker in place before getting pre-season underway so United could look elsewhere if Tottenham haggle over Kane.
Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen is also on the Red Devils wishlist after scoring 19 goals in 22 Serie A games this season.
He is believed to have a £107m release clause in his contract and United could look to activate it if they fail to sign Harry Kane.
Osimhen is also wanted by Chelsea and Arsenal and he put interested suitors on red alert after revealing it is his dream to play in the Premier League.

Osimhen said: “I think playing in one of the top five leagues in the world (Serie A) is an amazing feeling for me.
“A lot of people worldwide consider the Premier League as the best and the strongest league but now I’m in one of the best leagues in the world which is the Italian Serie A.
“I’m working so hard to make sure that I achieve my dream of playing in the Premier League some day but like I said, it’s a process and I just want to keep on this momentum and continue to do well.”
