Manchester United have been urged to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane if the Red Devils want to start winning titles.

Kane’s Tottenham Hotspur contract expires in the summer of 2024 and he is expected to leave the London club next summer if he doesn’t extend his contract.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Paul Merson said: “[Harry Kane] is the best centre-forward in the world. If I’m Manchester United, I’m spending £100m on Kane tomorrow. They just paid £80m for Antony and he won’t score as many goals in 10 years as Kane would score in a season for Man Utd,’ Merson continued.

“Kane can play until he’s 37 because he doesn’t have to have pace – his game’s not about pace. He’s got the brain, he can come short, find the passes and score the goals. He has everything.’

“If Man Utd want to be anywhere near winning a title, they need a Kane. Seeing them against Arsenal, they’re a long way off still.

“Kane to Chelsea? That can’t happen. If he comes to Chelsea, he loses his legacy at Tottenham. Tottenham fans would go mad. For him to go over to Chelsea, it would be the next notch down from going to Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham don’t get on.”

Kane has scored 16 Premier League goals in 21 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur this season.
