Scholes tells Man Utd to go all out for Haaland transfer over Kane for four reasons including ‘timing of career’


ERLING HAALAND is Manchester United’s best bet if they are to sign a striker in the summer, according to Paul Scholes.

The midfield legend weighed up the Norwegian against Tottenham star Harry Kane and insisted he is better in a number of areas.

He told the Webby & O’Neill show: “[United] need a No9.

“I think the forwards they have are very good, but are any of them really a No9, or are they wide players? You just can’t make sense out of it really.

“When Cavani’s played, he’s looked alright but he’s had a few injuries. He’s at that age. It was always going to happen, he was always going to be bit-part.

“They need someone who is more permanent who’s out there and available. I know Haaland is talked about a lot, he’s going to cost a lot of money.

“Harry Kane at Spurs, there’s rumours that he might want to leave there.

“I think any one of them, you take any one of them, but I think if I had to choose, then Haaland would definitely be the one.

“Purely for his age, great ability as well, the timing of his career, he’s played under Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] before…

“I think it would make sense for everyone to do it, but there’s going to be other clubs in for him which is going to be difficult.”

SunSport revealed this week that Tottenham will refuse to sell Kane, 27, to any Premier League rivals.

Meanwhile, Haaland is currently being touted around major European clubs by father Alf-Inge and agent Mino Raiola.

The duo were seen in Barcelona on Thursday for a two-hour transfer meeting before reportedly heading to Real Madrid.

And they are set to sit down with Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool – but not United – according to the Mail.

Haaland, 20, boasts 33 goals and eight assists for Dortmund this campaign with Kane on 27 and 16.

Scholes added that the England striker is still a very good option for the Red Devils but may not have the longevity of the youngster.

The 46-year-old noted: “I love Kane, I think he’s brilliant.

“When he first came onto the scene, I likened him to Ruud van Nistelrooy.

“He’s a ruthless finisher, he’s desperate to score goals. I just think at the stages of each one’s career, then you get more out of Haaland.”
