Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged his former club to spend around £230m on securing the services of England international attacking duo Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane.
Sancho’s future is set to be one of the hottest topics ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window, with a host of Europe’s top teams thought to be interested in securing his services following another outstanding season with Borussia Dortmund where he has managed to found back of the net 17-times and provided 19-assists in the process.
Kane, meanwhile, dropped hin that his future could lie away from the White Hart Lane if the Spurs do not begin competing for silverware next season, and Ferdinand has called on the Red Devils to splash the cash on the England duo.
“Harry has always been coy and held back but he’s dropped a couple of bombs. He’s been waiting for the dream at Spurs to materialise but it hasn’t happened. He’s frustrated. Do you think Harry would be happy, fulfilled and satisfied if he scores goals, break records but with no trophies at the end of his career? No. He will be upset and devastated,” Ferdinand said during an Instagram Q&A.
“I think that statement means Harry is off, he wants to win trophies and that will alert clubs. I know Man United will be in for him because that type of player is perfect for them. He will go for massive dough, at least £130m in today’s market.
“I want Jadon to go to a team where he will play, improve and get trophies. He’s been linked with United, Chelsea, PSG but I think United is the place for him to go. He’s a player with huge potential and will go for over £100m. You are buying someone for 10 years at your club, it’s massive money but I’d take him and risk it.”
If Man Utd manage to lure both of them at Old Trafford next season they will be transformed into a tittle contender, however, luring at least one of them would be enough to increase their chances to secure the silverware next term.
