Edinson Cavani, Harry Kane, Erling Haaland: Who should be the striker for Man Utd? | Football news
When questions remain over who may be Manchester United’s main striker, Sky Sports discuss three options: Edinson Cavani, Harry Kane, Erling Haaland
Cavani played the game as Man Utd won 3-1 against Tottenham in the Super Sunday, scoring the second goal in another away win.
At the other extreme, the evening was not so fruitful Kane, he will tell Tottenham he wants to leave if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland is also attracting attention from all over Europe, with United still looking for his next star striker.
Here, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reports on Cavani’s future, while Sky Sports examines Roy Keane, Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp as to who might be United …
Ole: We want Cavani to stay
When asked Sky Sports’ If Geoff Shreeves wanted to stay at Cavani Man Utd, Solskjaer said, “It’s in Eddie’s hands. He knows my feelings, I know his feelings.
“He hasn’t made a decision yet and I understand it’s been a difficult year for everyone, but for a new guy who doesn’t know English, to go see people who don’t feel English culture, to have friends around. He’s in the back of your head if you want that.
“You can’t finish your family, so with your fingers crossed, if you decide it’s just this season, we’re lucky to have you here.”
Solskjaer added: “It was a wonderful performance, I said a couple of things about Edinson today, we are waiting for his decision, whether he will stay or continue. Of course, a performance like today, we have lost a few years as a club.
“We don’t have that kind of number 9 for a long, long season. We can see that the boys are also playing a little bit of their strengths.
“We’ve had honest meetings before and now. There’s no secret, we want to keep him … He’s reflecting and thinking about what he wants to do, and I understand. He knows what I want, he’s got a diving title at Old Stretford End , there is no better feeling. So let’s wait. “
Keane: Kane will like United
Sky Sports’ Roy Keane:
“Ole has made it clear that they are trying to keep Cavani for another year. But he is an experienced player, you have to respect that and Ole has made good points, a lot is happening in the background with Covid. And family situations, they moved to a new country. to live.
“There’s no question about his quality. You may not get to play 40 or 50 games per season, but does Cavani want to be a team player? United have yet to get (Anthony) Martial and they’re probably in the market for another striker. So it’s a lot of confusion. .
“He would make the world of good today by playing and scoring in a major game, but there’s a huge question. But I’d like to stay, because it’s very good to watch.”
Does United need another striker?
“One hundred percent. With Martial and his injury problems, you wouldn’t be able to hang his hat, Cavani is pushing [in age] and you wouldn’t expect him to be playing weekly. If United wants to regain the titles they have won, they need another striker.
“Kane, Haaland – I’ll take any of them. Maybe it’s because of Haaland’s age and the investment he’s made behind it, but I wouldn’t say no if Kane had a second chance.
“Kane United will be looking at this team and they’ve made progress over the last 12 months, but I’m sure Kan will think ‘I could be the main man I’ve been in front of.’ .
“If Kane is on the United team, night comes after day [with trophies]. Man Utd has closed City’s side and Kan would be another huge step forward, even if City buy it too, of course. And maybe Kane doesn’t want to go abroad, maybe he likes to play in England, he knows the inside of the league. Man United are doing a tremendous job. “
Richards: Kane would do the business right away
Sky Sports Micah Richards:
“Haaland has the value of recovery because he’s very young. But if you know someone who wants to do business right away, you won’t think any more than Kanek.
“You see today, he is sometimes very frustrated with this team, but on the Man United counter-attack, I think he would be perfect.
“It’s not fair for me to say that Kane is going to United – he’s a Spurs player at the moment and he needs to focus on that because that’s the most important thing.
“If you left the Spurs, Kane would probably go anywhere in the world or pick trophies with guaranteed trophies, because United are still in that rebuilding phase. If I’m Kane, as I am, I would go to the team that gets the most trophies.
“The city has won four Premier League trophies in the last 10 years. If there was a chance, why would you choose the rebuild stage, when the Spurs rebuild stage?”
Redknapp: You would be happy with Kane or Haaland
Sky Sports team Jamie Redknapp:
“United have good young players with Rashford and Greenwood, Kane would fit in because he has a little more experience, especially if you lose Cavani.
“For other teams, they can look at Haaland, maybe after Man City lose Aguero, maybe you’ll go looking for someone younger. But they’re both beautiful players, whatever you get, you’d be happy.
“But I think a central defender is more important to them right now.”
