Recent transfer gossip is heating up as the summer transfer window approaches.
Harry Kane has dominated the headlines this past week with him being linked with a move to Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur.
The rumoured asking price for the England international is £200 million which is said to have scared United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer off.
Despite the incredible asking price for the striker, Gary Neville believes that he would fit in at United.
“I think it fits Manchester United’s historical transfer, going back to say, Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, trying to sign Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, the best or most famous English or British [or Irish] player in the Premier League,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“It does fit with that with what Manchester United did last summer with Harry Maguire, one of the best players available on the market.
“He’s a clever lad, Harry Kane, he’s not somebody I think would get caught out if he didn’t want to say something, so the little opening of the door that he left in that Instagram piece had something in it.
“I don’t think Harry Kane will have been that impressed with his club a couple of weeks ago with what they did. He’s a good lad, a solid lad, I don’t think he’d have taken that particularly well and he was probably just poking them back.
“In my mind, I think he’ll have been warning them to say just be careful, because I’m watching you and that’s not something we do.”
Do United need to spend this amount of money with Mason Greenwood coming through the ranks? Neville also has high praise for the young Mancunian starlet.
“He can be anything he wants to be,” Neville said of Greenwood on Sky Sports.
“He just looks like he’s got such great composure and quality. He’s great physically as well.
“If he continues to emerge like he’s shown at times this season I think Manchester United have got the real deal there.”
