Alan Smith has called for Manchester United to sign Harry Kane before the summer transfer window shuts, despite their move to bring in Rasmus Hojlund.
The former Red Devils star believes the young striker can learn a lot from training and playing alongside Kane, and the Tottenham talisman would fit straight into Erik ten Hag’s starting XI.
“I think Man United should move for Kane despite already signing Hojlund,” Smith told Gambling Zone.
“Because he’s only 20, he’s a young lad, he’d be able to learn from Kane. He’s more of an old-fashioned No.9, whereas Hojlund is a little more in behind.
“I feel there’s space for one more and there could be a surprise towards the end of the transfer window, and it could be Kane.
“I can’t really think of anyone else who would fit the bill to play up front for Man Utd, no one jumps out other than Harry Kane.
“I’m sure everyone would like to see Harry Kane there, he would also be a loss to English football if he went to Bayern. He’s probably thinking his legacy may be ruined if leaves Tottenham for Man Utd, but I don’t think that would be the case.
“If you look at how well he’s done, I feel Kane is turning into Teddy Sheringham. A little different to him but similar in the way Spurs was his club but he went to Man Utd, so I feel it would be a shame if we lost him from the Premier League.
“I’d like to see him stay at Spurs but if he’s going to go I want him to stay in the Premier League. But I feel that if Ten Hag wanted him, it would have been done by now.”
