Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes Harry Kane would be a good signing for his old club, but he is not totally convinced by the reported price.
Reports emerged this week claiming Kane wants to leave Tottenham and that he has told the club he wants to depart this summer.
Football.london understands it is not quite that straightforward and that Kane has not said he wants to leave in explicit terms, but he may be open to a move as he looks to fulfil his dream of winning major trophies.
And with that in mind, a number of clubs have already been linked with a move, including Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
And former United midfielder Scholes is behind the idea, telling the Webby and O’Neill: “I think he would be (a good signing), yeah, of course he would.
“I think we have forwards now who, we are not sure if they are centre-forwards or wide players.
“Mason (Greenwood), Marcus (Rashford) and (Anthony) Martial. All three, I really like them but is any one of them a real number nine like Harry Kane? Obviously, we have Edinson Cavani for another year.
“I would be a little bit surprised if he came here with Cavani. But I like Kane and I think he could be your striker for the next four of five years.
“If he is available and the club wants him, I would like him.”
Though, Scholes believes Kane would fit in at all three of the Premier League clubs who have been linked.
“I don’t think he would go wrong playing for any of the three clubs, really,” he added.
“I don’t think coming to Manchester would be a problem for him. He is a professional lad coming to a big club. There’s obviously a rivalry between Tottenham and Chelsea as well, and I’m not sure if it will be an option for him.
“We all know what a quality player he is. It will be good to have him here, but it’s alright saying he wants to leave, but what price tag will they put on him.”
Just how much Kane will cost is another issue, with talk Daniel Levy could want anywhere between £90million and £150million for his star striker.
Speaking about the rumoured price tag, Scholes said: “You probably get the best three or four years of his career. I don’t know if £90million is a little too much.
“But I don’t think he will sell for less and they might even want a bit more.”
