Man United urged to land £50m breakthrough star

Manchester United hero Phil Neville believes that his old side will sign a top quality striker this summer, and he sees Spurs’ Harry Kane as an ideal fit.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a stunning 2014/15 campaign in which he rose from being a back-up man at White Hart Lane to the Lilywhites’ key centre-forward and a goalscoring England international.

In total he notched a whopping 31 goals across the campaign just gone, and is set to star for England’s U-21 team in the coming months in European Championship action.

His performances and amazing rise are understood to have alerted United, with reports claiming that Louis van Gaal is ready to dedicate up to £50m of his substantial transfer budget to getting Kane to Old Trafford.

And Neville thinks that the youngster would be the perfect fit at his old club:

“He would cost a lot of money and I’m sure Tottenham don’t want to lose him, but I think being in the Champions League, United have got Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and James Wilson, so they probably do need one more striker,” he is quoted by Goal.

“I think United will sign a quality player from European football, whether that’s England or abroad and he fits that bill and if they can get Harry Kane here then that would be a fantastic signing

“I’m a big fan of Harry Kane, he’s got a great attitude, nothing seems to faze him and he’s answered every question that’s been thrown his way.

“The team has always had a backbone of British players and I think that’s still important that you do get British players and the spine of the team has got that British feel.”

Kane has recently played down speculation surrounding his future, insisting that he’s happy in North London.
