Premier League

Rio ferdinand told 'Manchester United to seal the transfer of these two players as possible'.

Rio Ferdinand has urged Manchester United to seal moves for these two players Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho this coming summer.

Speculation has been flowing over the Brussia Dortmund player Sancho with Manchester United reportedly battling the Blues to seal a move for the winger.

While recently Harry Kane has put a number of top European clubs on red-alert by admitting that his personal reasons could see him leave the Spurs.

And Rio Ferdinand, who won six Premier League titles from 2002-2014 at Old Trafford, believes now is the time for the United to go in for the player.

“Harry has always been coy and held back but he’s dropped a couple of bombs,” he said in an Instagram Q&A.

“He’s been waiting for the dream at Spurs to materialise but it hasn’t happened. He’s frustrated.

“Do you think Harry would be happy, fulfilled and satisfied if he scores goals, break records but with no trophies at the end of his career? No. He will be upset and devastated.

“I think that statement means Harry is off, he wants to win trophies and that will alert clubs.

“I know Man United will be in for him because that type of player is perfect for them. I’m sure Juventus will be in and will Real Madrid come in?

“He will go for massive dough, at least £130m in today’s market.”

Ferdinand also poured out praise on on the Dortmund player who has had a phenomenal season in the Bundesliga with 14 goals and 15 assists, and claimed the youngster is deserving of the Red Devils’ No.7 shirt which he mentioned the ex–players that has worn it before. The likes of David Beckham, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He said: “I want Jadon to go to a team where he will play, improve and get trophies. He’s been linked with United, Chelsea, PSG but I think United is the place for him to go because I’m biased.

“(Marcus) Rashford, (Anthony) Martial, Kane, Sancho, that would intimate a lot of centre-halves before a whistle is blown. Definitely.” “Of course, he has to. If he wears the seven (shirt) he has to be there for the next ten years. That’s what that shirt deserves and demands.

“He’s flying and one of the best young kids in the world at the moment. He’s a player with huge potential and will go for over £100m.

“You are buying someone for 10 years at your club, it’s massive money but I’d take him and risk it.

“You say to him, ‘You’re going to be the player we build a team around and person who can get us trophies.’ He’s got the x-factor, skills, beats and excites people.

“If you go to Real, Barca, United, those stadiums want to be excited and get them off their seat. Sancho is that guy.

“He has all the potential to be an absolute humongous superstar. He brings the playground to the stadium.”
