Rio Ferdinand feels Jose Mourinho would stop Harry Kane from joining his old club
Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United’s hopes of signing Harry Kane will be dashed by Jose Mourinho. Harry Kane is unlikely to join Manchester United because Jose Mourinho would give his best to keep the English skipper at Spurs. There has been growing speculation that England captain will be open to the idea of departing Spurs if the club does not realize his ambition of winning major trophies.
It is also reported that if there is even the slightest chance of the deal going through, Spurs would want at least £150 million for their talisman. However, Ferdinand doubts former Red Devils boss would allow a deal to happen.
Ferdinand said, “Would I take Kane now? Of course you would, if he’s fit and he’s raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man Utd, 100 percent. Top player, you’re guaranteeing goals, in the Premier League. This geezer scores goals but I don’t see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go.”
United are also in the race and probably ahead of the other teams in signing Kane’s England team-mate Jadon Sancho. The former Manchester City forward has been sensational for Borussia Dortmund and Ferdinand would love to see Sancho gracing the Old Trafford turf.
While Sancho is being tipped to leave Signal Iduna Park, Birmingham City’s highly praised teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham could be on his way to Old Trafford as well. Bellingham, who turns 17 in June, with a reported price tag of £30 million, the club is looking to take a gamble and sign him.
When asked Ferdinand about it, he said, “Jude Bellingham, huge talent, really good-looking footballer in the way he plays, the balance he’s got, the maturity at such a young age. I want to see more but the price tag is phenomenal. £30m for a kid, for a 16-year-old boy, is unbelievable. I think he’s someone I would 100 percent buy. If I’m Man United now, go in and get him.”
