Tottenham had a great chance to do the double over Manchester United yesterday but the Red Devils bounced back from a goal down to earn all three points.
The north Londoners have suffered a major blow as far as qualification for Champions League is concerned and to make matters worse, they might have to deal with the departure of star striker Harry Kane (The Athletic).
At Old Trafford, Solskjaer needs a quality out and out center forward and Kane has been linked with the club for some time.
Former Arsenal star, Paul Merson, who is now a television pundit, has backed Man Utd to secure the ‘perfect’ signing of Harry Kane if they want to challenge Man City for the Premier League title.
The 53-year-old told Sky Sports (via The Mirror):
“I just think he’s perfect for Manchester United.”
“If Manchester United want to challenge Manchester City over the next three or four years, they will have to have a Harry Kane.”
Old Trafford legend and former captain Roy Keane thinks that the 27-year-old would fancy a move to Manchester United. The retired international claimed (via The Metro):
“With the service he’d be getting, Kane must fancy United. I think Kane fancies United, I just have that feeling that he fancies United. Just a gut feeling.”
The England captain is currently the joint top scorer in this season’s Premier League. He has netted 19 goals in 29 appearances and should be able to cross the 20-goal mark. On the other hand, no Man Utd player has scored 20 plus league goals in the past 8 seasons.
Therefore, the position must be reinforced by Ole in the next transfer window. Will Man Utd be able to sign the £200,000-a-week player (The Mail) from Spurs? Only time will tell.
