The Red Devils have been strongly linked with Harry Kane in recent days, with a report giving them a possible boost as the piece claimed Spurs could let the England international leave for a fee of £200million.
Stan Collymore, however feels United will face strong competition from Madrid for Kane, who has been one of the most lethal goal-scorers in the sport.
The former Premier League forward stated his belief that Kane could need convincing to make the move to Old Trafford. The pundit believes Man Utd vowing to also sign Sancho could do them a favour, and the Borussia Dortmund winger has been strongly linked with the club.
The pair could no doubt form a dangerous partnership for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, and a deal like that could be the key to persuade Kane to pick Manchester over Madrid.
“I can honestly see Kane going to Real ahead of United in the same way we saw Bale move to the Bernabeu seven years ago,” Collymore said
“The only hope Solskjaer really has of making Old Trafford as a primary destination for Kane, is if he tells him:
‘We’re not just going to bring you in, Harry, we’re going to bring in Jadon Sancho as well to supply you and maybe a couple of other players on top of him’.
“If Sancho didn’t materialize then I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Kane taking the No.9 shirt from Karim Benzema at Real Madrid, with the Frenchman then heading to the Premier League.”
