ARSENAL legend Ian Wright says Manchester United signing Tottenham star Harry Kane should be a “no-brainer”.

A centre forward is high on Man Utd’s summer wishlist following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

And reports suggest Ten Hag will go all out to land Tottenham and England sensation Kane.

The Three Lions skipper equalled Jimmy Greaves’ Spurs tally of 266 goals for the North London side with the winner at Fulham.

And despite suggestions he may make a U-turn and sign a new contract, United have been urged by Arsenal legend Wright to push forward and pursue a deal.

Wright said on Wrighty’s House: “If Man Utd came now, [for] Harry Kane with a year left, let’s say they put £60m on the table and we’ll throw in someone, Martial, whatever… it’s a very good deal.

“If Man Utd have got any serious thinking about what we need to do next, it’s a No9.

“It seems like a no-brainer that Harry Kane is the person [they should sign]. He takes them somewhere else.”

Wright believes that despite the possibility of Kane leaving Tottenham trophyless, fans will wish the 29-year-old well.

Wright added: “Spurs fans will say ‘you know what, good luck Harry’.”


United have brought in Wout Weghorst to temporarily fill the gap left by Ronaldo.

However, the on-loan star has struggled to make an impact for the Red Devils.

Wright says the difference between Arsenal and Man Utd in Sunday’s 3-2 win for Mikel Arteta’s men was the strikers.

He said: “One of the main differences was Eddie Nketiah, a No9. 

“That’s what Man Utd didn’t have, because they had [Wout] Weghorst up there but he wasn’t a threat if we’re going to be totally honest, he was not a threat. 

“When you’re looking at Man Utd’s trajectory at the minute and where they’re moving, Harry Kane for three years, 

“I think Man Utd would definitely be doing something because Man Utd are not a million miles away with what ten Hag’s doing.”
