Kane open to stunning United move
Harry Kane is open to a stunning move to Manchester United from Tottenham, with the England international frustrated with life in north London.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who say the 26-year-old is intrigued by the prospect of moving to Old Trafford.
Kane hinted he could leave Tottenham last month when he admitted he wouldn’t stay at the club ‘for the sake of it’ and he wanted to win trophies.
United have long admired the striker, with interest in the England skipper dating back to Louis van Gaal’s time in charge.
And whether they now make a move for the Tottenham hitman is something only time will tell.
Woodward makes enquiry over email
Ed Woodward has reportedly emailed an enquiry to Barcelona about the availability of Marc Jurado.
The prospect, who turns 16 today, has reportedly caught the eye of the Red Devils who think he’s one of the ‘leaders of his generation.’
United have now emailed Barcelona to see if he can be signed, having once raided them for Gerard Pique while the Spaniard was a youngster, Sport say.
But Barca are determined to keep hold of their teenage talent.
They’re reportedly confident of striking an agreement with the player over a new contract.
Aubameyang backed to reject Man Utd
Paul Merson feels Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should turn down Manchester United to stay at Arsenal, telling Sky Sports: “It’s easy saying ‘oh let’s move to another ambitious club and win stuff’ – there’s not a lot of trophies to win.
“When you’ve got two phenomenal football clubs at the moment in Liverpool and Manchester City, there’s not a lot that you can win.
“You’ve got to be careful, the grass is not always greener on the other side.
“He knows at his age now he’s going to play every week at Arsenal.
“If he goes to a Man United, if he goes somewhere else, you have four or five games playing for them and you’re out of the team.
“At Arsenal he’s going to play every week.”
Man Utd icon Ferguson discussed by former defender Silvestre
Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson would often be absent for training three days in a row, according to former Red Devils defender Mikael Silvestre.
“[United] is a different model and it used to work with Sir Alex because sometimes he wouldn’t come to training for two, three days and he was probably scouting and meeting agents, doing other parts of the role,” Silvestre told Stadium Astro.
“That’s when Steve McClaren, Brian Kidd, Carlos Queiroz, would take charge of training and it would be business as usual even if the gaffer wasn’t there.”
Ferguson would often change his assistant manager during his 27-year tenure at United.
They won the treble when McClaren worked at Old Trafford and lifted the Premier League and Champions League double during Queiroz’s spell at the club.
