Former Sir Alex Ferguson assistant, Rene Meulensteen believes that Harry Kane’s presence will raise the level of Manchester United next season. Especially in the race for the Premier League title.
Manchester United have indeed slumped for the last 7 seasons, starting from the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. During that period, they seemed to have difficulty competing to become Premier League champions.
The club nicknamed the Red Devils failed to compete with rivals such as Manchester City and Liverpool.
Now, the two clubs are considered to be several levels above United. Therefore, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are believed to be taking advantage of the transfer market this summer to buy several players.
Later, they were heavily linked with Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. But Rene Meulensteen hopes that Manchester United will prioritize the transfer of Harry Kane, because he believes the England striker can increase the level of the team.
“They brought Jadon Sancho, but more than anything, I would choose a striker who is more productive, someone like Harry Kane,”
“There is so much creativity coming from midfield with Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford, Martial … they can all contribute to score goals. But someone in the middle who will score more than 25 goals. That will close the gap for United, “he said on talkSPORT.
Furthermore, the former assistant Sir Alex Ferguson admits that Jadon Sancho is a good player and can help the team’s wing sector next season.
However, the problem is that at the same time the club also needs a productive center-forward. Kane’s presence will increase the level of Manchester United in order to compete in the Premier League next season.
“But at the same time, United needs a lot more to really be a force to compete for the Premier League title,” he continued.
As for the two players, Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho have long been linked with Manchester United. But one thing is burdensome for their steps to buy the two players, none other than the price.
For example, Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund is only willing to release a 20-year-old winger with a tag of 120 million Euros.
