It's added that the Portuguese tactician has urged the club to make an offer to Tottenham that they can't refuse, while that won't affect their £60m pursuit of Alvaro Morata as he looks to add real firepower to his squad this summer. United also love Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich but a serious investment in the Polish forward is hard with him turning 29 this summer.
While this might dash the hopes of all United fans hoping for an emphatic Ronaldo return to Old Trafford, the truth is that Ronaldo alone might not be able to lift the burden of improving the Red Devils' blunt attack force.
How much is a player like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi really worth?
The report goes on to say that Mourinho wants Ronaldo's club teammate Alvato Morata to be recruited as well, envisioning a Red Devils strikeforce of the Spain global and the England marksman.
However, the Tottenham goal machine is also still contracted to the north London side until 2022 and they will be sure to do all that they can to enable them to line-up with Kane in the next campaign following a season where he bagged 29 Premier League goals in 30 top-flight appearances.
Harry Kane might just be the subject of the biggest transfer of the summer, according to Ladbrokes. For the second successive season, Kane finished up with the Premier League's Golden Boot and has been in brilliant form for Pochettino's club.
