Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged the club to go all out in the summer and snap striker Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho.
The duo has been heavily linked to United and should coast over £230million but according to Ferdinand, it was a risk worth taking for the English giants.
“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.
“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,” Ferdinand said.
Sancho is already familiar with playing with Kane and Marcus Rashford at the national team and Rio feels that the combination would be too much for defenders in the Premier League.
“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 because I'm biased. You are buying someone for 10 years at your club, it's massive money but I'd take him and risk it.'
“(Marcus) Rashford, (Anthony) Martial, Kane, Sancho, that would intimate a lot of centre-halves before a whistle is blown. Definitely. You are buying someone for 10 years at your club, it's massive money but I'd take him and risk it,” Rio added.
United was placed fifth on the league log before the beak just three points below fourth-placed Chelsea as they seek to qualify for the Champions League next season something that might give them an edge when negotiating for new players.
