Gary Neville believes Harry Kane would be a “brilliant signing” for Manchester United and finally solve their troublesome striker problems, although he fears Tottenham will drive hard.

Erik ten Hag has already made a new proven goalscorer his top priority for the summer transfer window, having signed Wout Weghorst on loan until the end of the season as a short-term stoppage.

By then, Kane will have just one year left on his Spurs contract and the forward will be looking to leave if he doesn’t feel the north London club are in a position to challenge for silverware.

Rather than risk losing Kane on a free transfer in 2024, Tottenham are likely to cash in on their long-term top scorer – but only if they receive a £100m bid.

United are keeping a close eye on the situation and the 29-year-old is open to a move to Old Trafford and Neville – who interviewed Kane almost two years ago when he was trying to set up a move to Manchester City – believes it would be a no-brainer.

“Tottenham fans don’t really remember me moving Harry Kane to Manchester,” Neville told Sky Sports on Sunday when asked about the speculation.

“At that time it wasn’t for United, it was for City! So I won’t be winding them on Sunday when I won’t even be there.

“Harry Kane improves every single team in Europe, every single team in the world. He is an amazing striker and a great professional.

“So it would be obvious [to sign him]. If you look at Manchester United, they still play up front with Anthony Martial, they brought in Weghorst who is a break until the end of the season and nothing more.

“Obviously they’ve lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani from last season so they have real problems in that area.

“They don’t have what I would call a naaaaaaaatural striker that gives them the kind of play that Erik the Hag wants.

So I think they need to sign a striker, they need to spend big money on a striker – or find someone from somewhere and I don’t see where that comes from – so Kane would be a great signing. But getting him out of Tottenham will not be easy.

Tottenham would rather sell Kane abroad than Bayern Munich or Real Madrid and accept a lower fee of around £85m, although the England captain himself prefers to stay in the Premier League to match Alan Shearer’s scoring record.
