Harry Kane staying: Gary Neville won’t get Manchester United transfer wish

Gary Neville urged Manchester United to make a move for Harry Kane before transfer deadline day on Monday Night Football, but the England striker has announced he will be staying put at Tottenham Hotspur.

I feel when Edinson Cavani signed a contract extension to stay at Manchester United for another year, it was largely accepted that a move for Kane was unrealistic, with the club targeting other transfer targets — Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

The Spurs striker made headlines this summer when he failed to report for training when he was expected to return from holiday.

On Monday night, Gary Neville urged Manchester United to go out and sign the goalscorer for £150m, as if he is the final piece of the jigsaw to see the Reds push for the Premier League title.

“I think Manchester United will need a centre-forward in the next 12 months, the guy [Kane] is available now if you pay £150m,” he said on Sky Sports, as seen below.

“They’ve got Martial, James, Mata and Lingard, who I think to be fair, we could do without them at the club I think. I personally think Kane, coming in, would be a differentiator.”

We all have our opinions on that, but personally I think a defensive midfielder should be a priority if United plan to spend more money in the transfer market this summer.

Kane has three years remaining on his current contract at Spurs and Man City have failed in their pursuit to sign him before the deadline.
