Transfer News: Gary Neville names three Manchester United players that can be offer to Tottenham for Harry Kane
Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Metro), Gary Neville stated that Manchester United could hold an advantage over Manchester City in the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane because of three players.
Kane has opened the door to a Spurs exit as he looks to add trophies to his cabinet. The 27-year-old is yet to win a single trophy with Tottenham so far. He came close to lifting the Carabao Cup this season but Spurs, led by interim manager Ryan Mason, lost by a narrow margin. And amid all this, Manchester United and City are two clubs that have been touted as potential destinations for the England international.
The former United right-back said that is unlikely City break their transfer record, which is why exchanging a player alongside a big chunk of money might be enough to convince Daniel Levy.
Should Spurs take an exchange deal?
And according to Neville, United have three such players that can act as makeweights in a deal to sign Kane; Jesse Lingard, Daniel James, and Anthony Martial.
“City don’t tend to break their budget do they, £65m/£70m – they’re not going to get him for that. So it’s whether they could get a player to Tottenham that would makeweight the deal. And I think that’s what United maybe have in Martial, James and Lingard. They’re types of players you could send there plus a chunk of money; and it might make Daniel Levy happy, I don’t know.”
Kane won the Golden Boot and the Playmaker award this season for having the most goals and assists. There is no doubt that he is Spurs’ best player, if not the league’s best player right now.

The three players named by Neville do not seem like they help Spurs in any way and Levy should be wary of it. If Kane does leave, Spurs should make sure they are properly compensated with an amount that they can invest towards signing a truly world-class player.
