Manchester United have been linked with a move for a top striker during the summer transfer window, and Harry Kane is one of the names that has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville isn’t too keen on the move, and believes that signing Kane will block the pathway for Mason Greenwood.
Phil Neville who is a product of the Manchester United academy, has revealed that keeping Edinson Cavani should be the focus.
Asked about Manchester United’s striker search, Neville told talkSPORT: “Oh, I’d sign Edinson Cavani [for another season].
“I think when you talk about brilliant strikers… Cavani was world-class this week. For a player who has come in on a free transfer, he is everything you want in a centre-forward.
“I know a lot of people are talking about Harry Kane, and I think Harry Kane is world-class, but I think in Cavani they’ve got someone who can definitely produce the goods for another 12 months and the club would not have to pay the types of money that you have to pay for somebody like Harry Kane.
“Obviously long-term you’d have a think about the best players in the world at this moment in time, you think about Lewandowski, Kane, Mbappe, but it’s going to be difficult to prise those players away from their clubs.
“So I think Cavani fits the bill perfectly. ‘I think if you bring in somebody like Harry Kane you’re also blocking the path for somebody like Mason Greenwood, who I think is one of the best finishers in the game.”
