Paul Merson has written in The Daily Star that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane would have joined Manchester United.

The former Arsenal star believes that United should have made a move for Tottenham striker Kane in the summer transfer window instead of bringing back Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.

The Sky Sports pundit believes that 28-year-old England international striker Kane would have joined the Red Devils.

Merson wrote in The Daily Star: “If Cristiano Ronaldo wins the league at Manchester United it will be the biggest thing he’s ever done in football.

“But he won’t because he’s not the same player any more – and if you’re not going to win the league with him, I don’t see the point in signing him. 

“Harry Kane wins you the league. With the money they have spent on Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo, surely you try and get Kane? I think he would have gone there. United are the biggest club in the world.”

Harry Kane to Manchester United?

It is easy for Merson to say that Kane would have joined United and that the Red Devils should have signed the Spurs striker.

One thing that must be considered is the presence of a certain Daniel Levy at Tottenham.

The Spurs chairman reportedly stopped Kane from joining Premier League champions Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

Even City manager Pep Guardiola himself acknowledged how hard it is to negotiate with Levy.

Levy would have been just as hard to negotiate for United as he was for City.

Kane is arguably the best player at Tottenham, and the North London club would know that replacing the striker is virtually impossible at the moment.

As for United bringing back Ronaldo, the Portugal international forward is one of the greatest footballers of all time and remains at the top of his game.
