Paul Merson Says Manchester United Need To Move For 'World's Best' Harry Kane

Paul Merson Says Manchester United Need To Move For 'World's Best' Harry Kane

Harry Kane could well be on his way out of Spurs this summer.

The Athletic reported this morning that the player would look to leave the North London club if they failed to qualify for next season's Champions League, something they look like outsiders to do at the moment.

If he were to push for an exit, you would imagine Spurs would demand an enormous fee for a player who is under contract for three more seasons. As a result, the number of clubs that could realistically pull off the deal is quite small.

The likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, PSG, and Real Madrid are likely to be heavily linked over the coming months.

Paul Merson believes one of those teams needs to break the bank and get their man. Speaking on Sky Sports, he said that Kane's age will not be a deterrent to any interested parties due to the fact that he sees him as the best striker in world football.

For me at the moment, he is the best. You can put your Haalands up there, your Lewandowskis, you Mbappes. He is up there with them easily.

He brings everything to the party. If he has a bad game he will still bring something to the part, be it an assist, a couple of opportunities, maybe nick a goal.

I don't see the other people I'm talking about doing that. Maybe Mbappe is the only other one. You can throw Lewandowski at me, but at Bayern Munich they just wipe the floor every week.

Merson also said that Manchester United need a player of Kane's calibre if they are to challenge at the top of the Premier League, meaning he would be an ideal addition this summer.

I just think he's perfect for Man United.

If Man United want to challenge Manchester City over the next three or four years, they will have to have a Harry Kane. They will have to have a centre forward.

Manchester United are likely to be in the market for a centre forward this summer, although it remains to be seen if they would be willing to pay the type of money it would require to get this particular deal over the line.
