Former Manchester United player, Phil Neville has warned the Red Devils over signing Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur this summer transfer window.
Man United have been heavily linked with a move to sign Kane, who has always insisted he wants to win silverwares.
Neville, who is currently the coach of Inter Miami, believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side should not sign Kane, insisting that they already have Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.
According to him, Kane may block Greenwood’s progression in the Man United squad.
“I know a lot of people are talking about Harry Kane, and I think Harry Kane is world-class, but I think in Cavani they have got someone who can definitely produce the goods for another twelve months, and the club wouldn’t have to pay the types of money that you have to pay for somebody like Harry Kane,” Neville told talkSPORT
“Obviously, long-term you would have a think about the best players in the world at this moment in time, you think about Lewandowski, Kane, Mbappe, but it is going to be difficult to prise those players away from their clubs.
“So I think Cavani fits the bill perfectly.
“I think if you bring in somebody like Harry Kane, you are also blocking the path for somebody like Mason Greenwood, who I think is one of the best finishers in the game.
“Ultimately, United have to create a pathway for Mason Greenwood to actually become the number nine. He is going to be the number nine without a shadow of a doubt – he is the best finisher at that club.
“He’ll be the number nine for England and Manchester United.”
