Manchester United have been linked with many top strikers in recent weeks. This is of course is very understandable, considering how desperately the club needs to turn its fortune and become a major force to reckon with in football again.
United are looking to splash major money this summer, as the club will try to bring in players that can help us go to the top, with Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Tottenham striker Harry Kane dominating headlines as potential names to lead the line for the club next season.
Now, while both deals are technically achievable, former defender, Rio Ferdinand believes bringing Kane to Old Trafford is more difficult than it seems. According to Ferdinand, the deal is dead on arrival as long as former coach José Mourinho remains at Tottenham.
“Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course, you would,” he said on Instagram. “If he’s fit and he’s raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man Utd, 100 per cent.
“Top player, you’re guaranteeing goals, in the Premier League, you’re guaranteeing goals. This geezer scores goals but I don’t see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go.
“And with Mourinho there, I don’t see Mourinho letting him go to Man Utd.”
Kane made his Tottenham debut in 2011. He has scored 181 goals for the North London side, after just 278 matches. His contract runs until 2024.
