Arsenal legend Ian Wright has urged Manchester United to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham in the summer transfer window.
Kane has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford but this summer looks the final realistic opportunity for United to purchase the 29-year-old striker, who has also attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
The England captain will be in the final year of his deal this summer and talks are yet to be opened over an extension – with Kane likely to want to remain in the Premier League as he looks to break Alan Shearer’s all-time scoring record.
Tottenham are desperate for Kane to sign a new deal but they could be forced to listen to offers if he announces his intention to leave at the end of the season.
Former United defender Rio Ferdinand has told Kane he has to leave Tottenham if he wants to win trophies while Louis Saha has predicted that the Spurs superstar will end up signing for the Red Devils.
Dimitar Berbatov has warned Kane that he risks ruining his Tottenham legacy if he joins United but ex-Gunners striker Wright feels it would be a perfect move.
‘[Manchester United] are a Harry Kane away from really kicking on [next season],’ he told The Kelly and Wrighty Show.
”When you look at Wout Weghorst… Yes I’ve been surprised with him coming off the No.9 [role] to No.10 and making things happen… but if that’s the plan then Harry Kane is the perfect person to do that.
‘Marcus Rashford in that form, Alejandro Garnacho with his pace… If Antony kicks on… Everything they’ve already got going forward with a proper No.9, Man United will be back.
‘You just feel Man United are not a million miles away [from winning Premier League titles].’
