Teddy Sheringham has urged Manchester United to break the bank to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“If they’re going to go out and break the bank for someone, go out and get Harry Kane,” Sheringham told Gambling.com.

“He’s the type of centre-forward they lack, a proper professional, he leads the line and you’ll always get 100% out of him.

“He’s a proper player, so go break the bank for him. I know that’s going to upset the Tottenham fans but we’re talking about Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“They should be doing this sort of thing instead of spending money on players who only might do the job for you.”

On Ronaldo’s situation at Old Trafford, Sheringham said: “I think Ronaldo has kind of got his head around the fact that he’s staying and the vibes don’t seem to be as bad anymore.

“When you have an absolute superstar in your camp it can affect a lot of other players, so I would have just said to him in the summer that he’s allowed to leave and built my team around a proper centre-forward instead, as well as the younger players he’s got.”
