Man United: It’s a ‘risk’ to swap with Kane player-plus-cash exchange

Published

on

Former Tottenham manager, Alex McLeish has insisted that a part-exchange deal involving Harry Kane would be a big “risk” for the North London outright this summer.

Harry Kane is reportedly wanted at Man United and a swap deal plus cash is already being talked about.

Reports claim Spurs have asked for £100million plus two first-team stars and a deal could happen in this transfer window.

The former Scotland manager recalled that Gareth Bale’s departure in 2007 has been a blow to the club as it has been difficult to replace the talisman.

While McLeish admitted a lucrative swap deal could look like an enticing prospect on paper but it could tell on the club on the pitch.

However, he warned losing Kane could make “a hell of a difference” regardless of who comes in.

“I’ll tell you why it’s a risk,” McLeish told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.

“When Gareth Bale left Spurs for around £80million, Tottenham bought about seven, eight players in with a lot of that money.

“You see the difference that one guy can make. Because those guys are coming in and trying to get their feet under the table and make an impact it’s false, they never really hit the ground running.

“That’s why you can lose one guy, get four or five others and think, wow, what a deal that was. That one man can make a hell of a difference.”

Nuno, on the other hand, says he cannot wait to get started and is eager to return to coaching after his shock exit from Wolves.

“When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy,” Nuno told Spurs’ club website.

“We don’t have any days to lose and we must start working immediately as pre-season starts in a few days.”

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
