Transfer News: Phil Neville warns Manchester United over signing Tottenham striker Harry Kane

Speaking to talkSPORT (h/t Mirror), Phil Neville has advised Manchester United not to sanction a transfer for Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur because it would mean less game-time for Mason Greenwood.

Kane has spent his entire career on Spurs’ books but is yet to win a trophy at the club. The 27-year-old also saw his side lose the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City and would know that the club is not very likely to make the UEFA Champions League next season.

This has put clubs on alert in Europe. Manchester United and Manchester City are the English clubs most heavily linked with him alongside other European sides. (h/t Mirror)

Prising Kane away from N17 would not be an easy task, especially for United, considering Levy’s reported outlook towards the deal. But Neville still wants United to steer clear of the goal machine because they already have Greenwood.

“I think if you bring in somebody like Harry Kane you’re 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.”

No move to Old Trafford?

The Inter Miami coach also went on to add that the club is better off keeping Edinson Cavani for another year as he ‘can definitely produce the goods for another 12 months’ while United ‘would not have to pay the types of money that you have to pay for somebody like Harry Kane’.

Neville says United are better off extending Cavani's contract.

Spurs fans would be hoping that United’s hierarchy pays heed to the former Everton defender’s comments and that Kane can stay at the club for at least one more season.

Kane, alongside Son Heung-min, is the club’s main man up front. He possesses the ability to turn the status of the game on its head almost at will.
