Man United have been urged to sign Harry Kane by club legend, Rio Ferdinand.
Manchester United have seemingly decided on Wout Weghorst as the short-term solution to their striker woes.
The Dutchman, who was involved at the Qatar World Cup, has scored eight goals in sixteen games for Besiktas this season. Though he will call Old Trafford home for the remainder of the campaign.
United has to fill the long-term void left by Cristiano Ronaldo when the summer rolls around. Strikers, particularly those who guarantee goals on a regular basis, aren’t cheap.
Now, United legend Rio Ferdinand has identified Harry Kane as the man United must sign. He’s urged his former employers to go out there and acquire the Englishman, who gets ’20-25 goals a season’ on a regular basis.
Check out what Rio Ferdinand had to say on Man United signing Harry Kane in full:
“Get Harry Kane in. Spurs fans, I’m sorry. You’re not going to win anything. He’s not going to win anything at Spurs. They’re in a bit of turmoil at the minute.” Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel.
“Man United, if you’re going to go in the summer: ‘Let’s go and find a number nine for the next three or four years to hang our hat on, to get 20-25 goals a season every year,’ where are you going? You’re going to have to pay big money for Harry Kane.
“But at least you know you’re getting a man who gets 20-25 goals a season. So Harry Kane can’t be going anywhere but Man United.”
I mean, Rio isn’t wrong. Kane is a goal machine. He absolutely knows where the back of the net is and I don’t doubt that he’d be able to continue with that streak if he made the move to Manchester.
However, I’d dread to think how much he’d cost. Tottenham’s Daniel Levy is an incredibly difficult negotiator at the best of times. Kane’s price would drastically increase if a Premier League club would come knocking…
With United’s ownership future up in the air, I have no idea whether this deal will happen. If the Glazer family are still in charge come the summer, I’d have serious doubts.
There’s also the age issue. Kane is now at that point in his career where he’s coming back down the mountain towards the back end of his playing time at the highest level. Will that put off Erik ten Hag? Possibly.
