The former Red Devils striker reckons this one signing could send the club back to the top of the Premier League.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is the ‘perfect’ Manchester United signing and could be the missing ingredient to the club’s bid to reclaim Premier League glory, according to Louis Saha.

Kane, who has a year left on his Tottenham contract, scored 30 goals in 38 games for the eighth-placed Spurs in last season’s Premier League table.

The club’s failure to qualify for Europe has fueled further doubts over the future of Kane, who is still waiting for his first piece of major silverware at the age of 29.

“I respect the Spurs fans, and so does Harry Kane but when we look at his career and what he represents for English football, it would be nice to see him win a trophy, but I don’t think that’s going to happen at Tottenham,” Saha told Paddy Power.

“As players, we all want a title or a Champions League – that’s Harry Kane’s level.

“To be totally honest, I can see him winning the Premier League if he joins one of the current top four teams. I love Manchester United so much and for me, that’s the perfect fit for him.

“Another season without Champions League football at Tottenham won’t be good for Harry Kane. I would advise him to consider Manchester United very strongly.”
