A United Season Gets Better With Kane According To Former Star

Teddy Sheringham believes Manchester United would be taken to a new level if they bought Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer.


Whilst Manchester United fans are right now dealing with the disappointment of their FA Cup Final defeat to close rivals Manchester City, there is no way that former Ajax gaffer, Erik ten Hag’s, first season cannot be considered a major success.

He has clearly sorted the behind scenes issues out, not least as shown by his handling of the whole Cristiano Ronaldo affair and his unprofessional and explosive Piers Morgan interview, but it is also further borne out by their third place finish in the Premier League, and lifting this years EFL Cup.

It was a great start by any standard really and that was certainly not lost on former England and Red Devil, Teddy Sheringham, as he was speaking to Betway Insider and he thought it was a ‘great achievement’ for a first year in charge.

“He’s had a lot to deal with, with the Ronaldo situation, which he dealt with impeccably. He let Ronaldo shoot himself in the foot, stayed very quiet at the right times and has come out smelling of roses. But you’ve got to get results while that’s going on and he’s done that. He’s got one cup in the bag already and has qualified for the Champions League, which is no mean feat at the moment. I know there are a few teams that have slipped away a bit this season but it’s still a great achievement.”

Sheringham certainly felt that there was far more to come from Ten Hag and United – particularly if they could finally end the speculation that has existed for years when it comes to Tottenham Hotspur hotshot Harry Kane, and finally secure a deal that brings him into Old Trafford for good.

He explained that despite the attacking talents available to Ten Hag for the coming season, he felt that it was clear they needed a more traditional No 9 in their set up to truly make their new system work, and he could think of nobody better than Kane given the ‘whole package’ he could bring to the club.

“This is the only thing people have asked me about over the last two years. If these two clubs want to want to be better, they need Kane. Tottenham need to keep him, Manchester United need to sign him. He’s exactly the type of player that Manchester United need. He’s a leader, he scores goals and he’s professional. He will drive your team on. He is the full package as a centre forward. He would be frightening for Manchester United.”

Given Kane’s phenomenal Spurs record, there cannot be many who do not hope he is wearing red next season.
