MANCHESTER UNITED should splash the cash on trying to sign Harry Kane, according to ex-Red Devils and Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham.
The Spurs talisman has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past, but so far the Lilywhites have held onto their man.
However, Man Utd are set to search for someone to lead the line for them come the end of the season when Cristiano Ronaldo‘s contract expires.
And Sheringham, who left Spurs to join United in 1997, feels Kane is a player Erik ten Hag should be looking at.
Speaking to Gambling, he said: “If they’re going to go out and break the bank for someone, go out and get Harry Kane.
“He’s the type of centre-forward they lack, a proper professional, he leads the line and you’ll always get 100% out of him.
“He’s a proper player, so go break the bank for him. I know that’s going to upset the Tottenham fans but we’re talking about Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“They should be doing this sort of thing instead of spending money on players who only might do the job for you.”
Kane has been in sensational form for Tottenham so far this season, scoring 10 goals in 14 appearances.
He has netted nine times in the Premier League, more than any other player aside from Erling Haaland – who has dwarfed everyone with 15 goals in 10 games.
And while Sheringham feels United should go after Kane, he is also of the opinion that the England captain is content at Tottenham under Antonio Conte.
“Harry looks very happy to me,” he added. “He obviously had a wobble at the start of last season when he thought he might be leaving the club, and you could see he was unnerved by all that.
“He’s in good shape at the moment, has the World Cup coming up, he’s scoring goals, so he’s in fine fettle so I don’t see why he would be thinking about leaving.”
Kane is just nine goals shy of becoming Spurs’ all-time top scorer – a feat currently held by Jimmy Greaves who hit the back of the net 266 times for the club.
He is also two goals behind Wayne Rooney‘s England scoring record of 53.
