Man Utd advised to ‘overpay’ for summer transfer target

Arsenal Liverpool Casemiro

According to former Tottenham and Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, Man Utd must spend everything it takes to acquire Harry Kane this summer. The England captain has been linked with a move to Manchester United for a while.

Kane might be in line for yet another season at Tottenham without a trophy. In his club career, he has failed to take home any significant awards.

On Wednesday, Sheffield United of the Championship knocked Spurs out of the FA Cup. The only competition Antonio Conte’s team can win this season is the Champions League.

To advance in their last-16 match against AC Milan, they must reverse a 1-0 first-leg deficit. Man Utd, however, is engaged in three rivalries despite having already won the Carabao Cup on Sunday.

Concerning the acquisition of Casemiro last summer, United was questioned. They agreed to pay up to £70 million to Real Madrid for a player who turned 31 in February.

This summer, Kane will turn thirty. Cundy thinks that even if United overpays for the striker, it would still be worth it, as Casemiro has demonstrated.

Harry Kane would be a great addition in the Man Utd squad

He said on talkSPORT: “Man United need to strong-arm Spurs in the summer. Man United, I’ve been saying this for the last seven or eight years, go and get Harry Kane.”

“This was in his infancy. You could have bought him for like £25-30m, then it would to £50m-60m, then £70m-80m, now it’s £90-100m.”

“You’ve seen what Casemiro can do at £70m. People said they overpaid right – who cares? Get Harry Kane, let me tell you now, Man Utd are right up there.”

“Man United need to go in there and muscle in between the pair of them and say ‘look, here’s what we’ve got going on, we’ve got Ten Hag, here’s what you can earn, here’s what you can win’. Man United will beat whatever Spurs throw at him.”

Furthermore, at the end of the upcoming season, Kane’s contract with Tottenham expires. He may move to United in the summer.

Gary Neville, a Man Utd legend, concurs that he would be the ideal addition to his former team. He stated to The Overlap: “He will score 30 goals and get 10 or 15 assists, and that is an undeniable fact. I have worked with him.”

“He’s a professional, the dressing room will love him, he’ll fit in straight away and he’s a guarantee for Manchester United. If he’s going to cost £150m and he’s 30 it’s short-lived but Casemiro, we all said it by the way, a £60m and £20m a year for five years is a £170m investment.”
