Paul Ince says Manchester United can only dream about Harry Kane signing

 

Manchester United legend Paul Ince has said that the Red Devils can only dream about the possibility of signing Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur. The Mancunian giants have been linked with the England international on a regular basis this year but Ince does not believe the club have a chance of landing his services.


He told: “I cannot see Harry Kane to Manchester United happening. I can see him going, yes, and wanting to leave Tottenham, but not to join United. People keep saying that, but what they keep forgetting is they’ve got Marcus Rashford up front. He’s always wanted to play up front, but what you need to remember is he can also play off the left-hand side, as we’ve seen from plenty of his goals this season. So if you’re looking at Rashford left, Kane centre and Jadon Sancho on the right. It sounds pretty nice doesn’t it? But it probably sounds like a dream for a reason, it is a dream.”

Fikayo Tomori hoping to emulate John Terry at Chelsea

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is hoping to emulate John Terry by staying put with the club for the long-term. The England international made his breakthrough under Frank Lampard in early September and his consistent performances over the next few months contributed to him making his debut for the England national side.


However, Tomori has since struggled to command a regular run of games due to form and fitness concerns but he is determined to prove his worth to the manager while emulating the path taken by club legend Terry, he told: “Obviously we had John Terry who had made that step from the Academy and he was the player I looked at when thinking of the pathway to the first team.

Paul Scholes criticises Martial after Manchester United’s win at Chelsea

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has remained critical over the performance of Anthony Martial despite the fact that he was on the scoresheet against Chelsea on Monday night. The Frenchman had a relatively quiet opening half but he managed to find the breakthrough before the break after heading in the opening goal.


In the second period, he faced a similar situation with the inability to provide the threat and ended the game with just 19 successful passes. Speaking on Sky Sports, Scholes once again questioned the natural position of Martial and insisted that the Frenchman is more of a winger than a centre-forward.

Ferdinand defends Solskjaer after United’s FA Cup draw vs Wolves

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has supported manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the Red Devils’ frustrating 0-0 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup. Both teams made multiple changes to the starting lineup for the Cup tie but the Red Devils were certainly the less efficient on the attack as they failed to muster a single shot on target.

As a result, there has already been widespread criticism from a number of fans over the outcome of the game but Ferdinand has defended his former teammate by stating that the inconsistency will remain present with a young squad at Solskjaer’s disposal, he told: “It was a better second half but both teams lacked quality in the final third especially. They huffed and puffed until the got to the final third, there wasn’t any quality into the box or into either front man for us to see a bit of magic. You never came off your seat once in the whole game. Not super clearly yet. I still think it’s a work in progress, the problem has been the inconsistency.”

Robson highlights Manchester United problem for winter transfer window

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has said that the winter transfer window will be crucial for the Red Devils, considering they have made a poor beginning to the current campaign. The Mancunian giants have already made their worst-ever start to a Premier League season and they are currently in the lower half of the standings with just nine points on the board.

In an interview with ESPN, Robson has said that the Red Devils are likely to find it hard to pursue new recruits at the turn of the year but they have no other choice, considering the shambles at the opening phase of the season, he told: “I always think it’s really difficult to find top class players who are prepared to leave a club and join a club in the January window. Normally you have to wait until the summer to add really quality players. But United have got to work at that, because we know that we need to improve to be where Manchester United want to be, so January’s going to be an important part of the season.”

Maguire believes he can form a defensive partnership with Lindelof

Manchester United’s summer signing Harry Maguire has said that he can form a strong central defensive partnership with Victor Lindelof, though it would require some time. The England international has been a valuable addition to the Red Devils backline but that has not necessarily improved the clean sheet tally with just two from the opening five games.

Speaking to MUTV, Maguire said that partnerships are built by playing games and he has shared the playing field with Lindelof on just five occasions, he told: “You have to realise partnerships are built on playing games and we have only had five games. We will get better. I will understand him more and he will understand me more. There probably will be times when we can do better but we will continue to work hard on the training pitch and that is really important to build relationships around the pitch – not just me and Victor. It is really important, as a defence, to keep a clean sheet.”
