Solskjaer told ‘to put the break’ on Sancho deal and bring £200 million rated Kane to Manchester United
Paul Scholes says Manchester United should put the breaks on their pursuit of Jadon Sancho and prioritise the signing of Harry Kane.
The Red Devils have a strong interest in signing England winger Sancho this summer, and there has been alot of reports that the club are trying to make sure that he is the player that is signed by the club.
However, with reports United are threatening to walk away from the table over the fee, Scholes has hailed Sancho as a ‘top quality’ player who would improve any team in world football, but told his former side that they should try and make a move for Kane instead.
Asked if Sancho should be a priority signing for the club, Scholes told BT Sport on Wednesday: “I don’t think it is.
“Don’t get me wrong Sancho is a top-quality footballer, I think he would improve any team in world football, and I am talking Liverpool, Man City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, he would improve all of them.
“His stats say that he is a goalscorer, he will make and score lots of goals, and there is no doubt he would be a big asset to the team.
“I just think we already have three forwards or wide men/centre forwards that are very similar to Sancho, possibly not quite as good as him, but potentially I think they could be.
“But I think if that is Harry Kane you are talking about, I would be more desperate to sign him than Sancho at this stage, although don’t get me wrong as I said Sancho is a top-quality footballer.
“I just think United need a centre forward, a real no.9 a real goalscorer, and Harry Kane would be that man for me.
“But you also have to think what does Ole want because it doesn’t seem like he wants that type of centre forward at the minute.”
Is he right?
Yes he is
