United have been linked with Kane and Haaland, two of the very best goalscorers in Europe who’re reported to be in search of recent begins this summer season.

Neville believes with Cavani’s expertise and the rising expertise of Mason Greenwood, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t want one other striker in his ranks and thinks the membership ought to deal with signing England worldwide Sancho, for whom Borussia Dortmund need round £80m.

However the large factor for me is Greenwood, he’s a celebrity. If you happen to carry Sancho in, he’s received to play 70-80 per cent of the video games on the precise, the place he performs. So then you definitely’ve received a extremely previous man who’s achieved brilliantly, or a extremely younger man who’s not fairly prepared bodily to guide the road for United.

“I believe Manchester United shopping for a Harry Kane or a Haaland and utilizing Greenwood on the precise slicing inside on the left foot, I believe he’s good at that. I’d be actually cautious in the event that they purchased Sancho of stunting Greenwood’s progress.”
