Manchester United have been urged to sign Tottenham forward Harry Kane, no matter the cost.
Danny Murphy has said that even if United have to shell out a club-record fee for the 26-year-old, it would be worth it as a top-class forward is the “final piece in the jigsaw” for the club.
Kane recently indicated he could be eyeing the exit door at Spurs, saying he could leave if the club do not progress a sufficient amount.
That news would likely have been of interest to United, who have long had their eye on the England international.
Murphy has said that money should not be an object in United’s pursuit of Kane, such would be the importance of his signing for the Old Trafford side.
“Manchester United are closer to challenging for the Premier League title and Champions League than many people think,” the former Liverpool midfielder said in the Daily Mail.
“The final piece in the jigsaw is a world-class centre-forward. We know it and they know it. It is why they tried to sign Erling Haaland in January.
“If Harry Kane is available, even for a record price, United would be mad not to look a gift horse in the mouth.”
