Hargreaves believes Man United must prioritise signing Ndidi and Sancho over Kane
According to the Express, former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes the club should prioritize two other players over Harry Kane.
Although he admits that the English striker would be a dream signing, he believes the team will be better served by not making him the priority.
“Harry Kane is the dream but they don’t desperately need him.”
The Red Devils have struck gold with the signing of Bruno Fernandes. The impressive Portuguese international has notched up three goals and four assists in nine appearances since his January transfer.
More than his goal contribution, he has also made the players around him better. The 25-year-old has added a much-needed boost to the United midfield and the Red Devils are yet to lose a game with him in the team.
His impact has been so impressive that Paul Pogba is keen on extending his stay at the club to link up with the Portuguese. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has also suggested the Frenchman could stay put, which should give United an excellent midfield duo in the prime of their careers.
A balanced midfield
Hargreaves believes that United should sign Leicester City’s Wilfried Ndidi to counterbalance the attacking responsibilities of Pogba and Fernandes.
“I think they need a Ndidi type, a defensive sitter. If you have Pogba and Fernandes then I think you need a defensive one there.”
Ndidi is one of the best defensive midfielders in the league and his ability to also create from deep will add another dimension to the United midfield.
Another player Hargreaves believes United should go for is Jadon Sancho. The youngster has set Bundesliga alight and is one of the best young players in the market today.
The former United star believes that although the likes of 16-year-old Jude Bellingham can turn out to be excellent players in the future, the club will be better served signing Sancho as he can make an immediate impact.
“Bellingham is 16 or 17, he’s going to be a super player but you need someone right now.”
Dortmund are willing to let their wonderkid leave for a price of £120million.
