Former Manchester United midfield star, Lee Sharpe tries to give positive advice to the Red Devils to be more active and brave to spend large funds in the winter transfer market in January 2020.
In the view of Lee Sharpe, Manchester United must have a figure capable of solving crucial problems on the pitch, and the player’s figure is a star and England captain, Harry Kane.
In the last summer transfer market, the Red Devils managed to bring three players at once, they are Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James. But unfortunately, instead of being able to lift the quality of Manchester United, the real fact has even declined with many proven to stumble at the start of the Premier League season.
Recorded until now, Manchester United have only been able to win two Premier League performances from eight matches this season. These results put them in 12th place in the standings, and are so close to the relegation red zone, because they have the same points as the team below.
If they can bring Kane, then Manchester United get a lot of new hope. However, Lee Sharpe realized that the move of the Red Devils to get the player would not be easy, because the purchase value of Kane was so high.
“I think you have to provide 300 million Pounds. You need someone like Harry Kane for 200 or 220 million Pounds, who will give you 25 goals per season and you have a different view on the team. So it won’t be cheap, “said Lee Sharpe.
Lee Sharpe added that Manchester United lagged behind Liverpool and Manchester City. You could say the level of the two teams is really different from the level owned by Manchester United at this time.
“It is very difficult, they will be difficult to follow the level of the game Manchester City and Liverpool when they have set high standards. You have to stop comparing this team with Liverpool and City and United’s great teams in the past and give them the opportunity to grow and educate themselves and potentially become a team that should be within a year or 18 months, “concluded Lee Sharpe.
In their last match, Manchester United again lost 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United. This situation also led to speculation that the coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be fired and some names of great coaches had been prepared.
