Merson: Man Utd should sign Kane who’s wasted at Spurs

Paul Merson claims Manchester United should be doing everything they can to sign Harry Kane this summer.

Kane has previously been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but United have so far been focussed on landing Jadon Sancho in the transfer window.

But Merson – a huge fan of the England captain – can’t understand why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, along with Manchester City, are not pulling out all the stops to sign him.

Merson told Sky Sports: “I’m probably Harry Kane’s biggest fan after his Mum and Dad! I look at him and I think: “What are you going to win at Tottenham?” He’s one of the best in the business at scoring goals, but he’s scoring 30 goals a season and not getting chances to win trophies, what’s the point in being there?

“I just cannot believe nobody has come in for him. What am I missing?! Manchester United are crying out for a goal scoring centre-forward, and if I’m being honest I think Man City are too. If Sergio Aguero gets injured, they miss too many chances. Aguero is two shots, one goal.

“I just don’t understand why there isn’t more talk about a team signing Kane.

“In terms of Spurs, you hear Jose Mourinho saying Spurs aren’t fit enough; if they lose four or five of their first six games, the season is over. That’s it. It’s massive. I said on air with Sky last year – and I got crucified for it – this is the way Mourinho plays.

“You’re not turning up at Spurs this season seeing 5-4s. It’s all well and good talking about the fitness, but it’s also the way he plays. He’ll sit deep, and he’ll counter-attack teams.

“It’s OK when there’s nobody in the ground, but with 60,000 people at Spurs, and they’re seeing that, they’re not going to be happy.

“They’ve seen some entertaining football there over the last few years. Over the last few years they’ve been as good as anybody, before the Champions League final.

“I can understand if he plays that way against Man City, but it’s Everton, at home! If you’re a Spurs fan watching that, you’re thinking: ‘Where are we going?’ I know there’s a long way to go, but you might be the most loyal Spurs fans in the world, you cannot sit there and honestly think, hand on heart, that you’re going to finish in the top four this season.

“It’s a shame for them, considering where they’ve been in the last few years.”

Gary Neville names three problems for Thiago Silva at Chelsea

Gary Neville has picked out three factors that will make it difficult for Thiago Silva to adapt to the Premier League.

Silva was snapped up on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, after the Brazilian had led the Ligue 1 giants to the Champions League final.

The soon-to-be 36-year-old has been brought in to add some vital experience to a fragile Chelsea defence.

But Neville has warned Silva it may take time to adapt to the intensity, the number of games and the speed of football.

“Again, it’s an unknown. 35 [years old], 36 next week, played in the French league now for a number of years,” Neville said on MNF on Sky Sports.

“The intensity in the French league is nothing like our league. That’s not to say Paris Saint-Germain are not a great team, they just got to the Champions League final, but you’re talking about the Premier League.

“Particularly the intensity of this Premier League season, it’s compact.

“It’ll be a massive challenge for him in terms of the amount of games, the speed of football compared to what he’s been used to. It’ll be a step up in that respect.

“Can he play in matches, can he play at this level? Of course he can, he’s a world class player.

“But at this stage in his career… again when you ask if Chelsea can win the league, it’s just a complete unknown. Will he adapt?

“What’s the goalkeeper going to be like? How the forwards are going to adapt?

“There’s a lot of unknowns with Chelsea. But on the other side of that, massive excitement.

“I’m intrigued to see how this world class defender who’s played many years for Brazil, been a wonderful player for Paris Saint-Germain, is going to do in our league.”
