Manchester United have been heavily linked with a summer move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane but after Anthony Martial’s hat-trick vs Sheffield United in midweek, many people think otherwise.
Martial became the first Man United player since Robin Van Persie to score a hat-trick for the club and a lot of people think Solskjaer should not be wasting unnecessary money on Harry Kane when the Frenchman has been improving in leaps and bounds.
But according to Jame O’Hara, the Spurs man will be a fine addition to the Manchester United first-team squad next season for two major reasons.
“Listen, I would love to see him stay at Spurs,” the former Tottenham man said on talkSPORT. “But they have to match his ambition.
“He wants to win trophies and Man United, for me, are still the biggest club in the world. Even though they are not where they were, they are still the biggest club in the world.
“And I think the missing piece in that United team, even though Martial is a fantastic player, if they did sign someone like Harry Kane then you are talking about a team that wins the title again.
“I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hit the nail on the head really when he said he is capable of doing that, and he is. I mean, he can be a world-class player, he showed yesterday how good he was with his finishing in and around the box.
“For me, the jury is still out on him in terms of whether he can be the number nine at Man United who is going to go on and be a legend and win them trophies.
“Personally, I don’t think that is him, I don’t think he is quite at that level. When you talk of the players they have had over the years; Rooney, Tevez, van Nistelrooy, van Persie…
“I just don’t know if Martial does it enough on a weekly basis to win them a title.”
Martial does look disinterested most of the times on the pitch which is a major headache for him but that will not be an issue with Harry Kane.
And while Man United will surely try and bring the England international on board during the summer transfer window but we do not think Daniel Levy will be too eager to part ways with his most prized possession.
