Numerous comments continue to trail United’s poor start to the 2019-20 Premier League season, and 48-year-old Lee Sharpe has joined in the conversation.
The former Manchester United star has charged the club to break the bank to sign Tottenham star Harry Kane as soon as possible.
It should be recalled that the Red Devils turned down the opportunity to sign the English man for £40m in 2015 as they claimed that the price tag was too high.
When asked about United’s decision to cool their interest in Kane four years ago, Sharpe believes it was a bad decision from the Old Trafford outfit.
“If they could have got Harry Kane for £40million, they certainly should have offered the money and he certainly would have scored the goals” he said.
According to Sharpe in an interview with MetaRating, Solskjaer and his employers must do everything possible to capture the English striker in the next transfer window, even if it means breaking their transfer record.
“Go and smash the bank and buy Harry Kane for whatever it takes.” he advised United’s manager.”
He also compared the Three Lions goal-poacher to another United Legend Eric Cantona due to their similar goalscoring prowesses.
“He (Kane) does go quiet in games, a bit like Cantona for us back in the day; he went quiet in games for 70-85 minutes at times. But when times got tough, he would invariably come in with a goal from nowhere and won us games 1-0 a lot of times. That’s what they’re paid to do, and that’s why they’re such special players.” he continued.
Kane has scored seven goals from nine matches in all competitions this season and he will definitely add to that before the end of the campaign.
