Will Harry Kane Go To Manchester United? Paul Ince Gives His View
Here’s a question you might have heard recently swirling around football circles – will Harry Kane go to Manchester United?
The January transfer window has now come and gone and yet again, despite rumours to the contrary, Harry Kane will remain a Tottenham Hotspurs player.
Kane has been heavily linked with a move to Man United in recent transfer windows. It is a move that would make a lot of sense for both parties.
The England striker is a world-class player who has been unable to lift silverware at Spurs and Erik Ten Hag’s Man United team looks like a squad that is one top-class striker away from winning a lot of trophies. So, the question remains – will Harry Kane play for Manchester United?
Here at BoyleSports we got the chance to catch up with Man United legend Paul Ince to ask him about some of the key questions as we look ahead to the summer transfer window and some of the big questions that remain following the January transfer deadline.
Will Man United Sign Harry Kane?
B: Do you think Harry Kane would be making a mistake if he signs a new contract with Spurs instead of potentially moving to Man United?
PI: It’s tough for Harry because he’s been at Tottenham all his life, he’s 29 now and the next contract he signs will probably be his last one unless he goes to the MLS or a similar League.
Harry has to make sure he’s comfortable with the team. Tottenham need to be winning things, they need Champions League football.
It’s not just about Harry, it’s about seeing what Tottenham’s ambition is like, and which players they bring into the club.
Marcus Rashford is flying but Man United don’t really have a proven goalscoring striker so if Harry is available then they will be after him but it’s hard for Kane to leave because he’s idolised at Spurs. It’s a tough decision for him.
We recently spoke to another Man United fan favourite in Louis Saha who thinks that Harry Kane can win a trophy at Spurs.

Federico Chiesa To Man United?
B: Reports suggest Man United are in for Federico Chiesa from Juventus. Having played in Italy yourself, how do you think he would find the transition to the Premier League?
PI: Federico Chiesa has only just started playing for Juventus again after a long-term injury but prior to that he was unplayable. The intensity is very different in Italy compared to England. When I went to Inter Milan I thought it was going to be tough for me, I didn’t know if I could get away with my playing style at Inter but it worked out ok.
If Chiesa was to come to Man United then I think the fans would love him. I’ve seen him play on numerous occasions and he’d be a perfect, perfect fit for Man United.
How Much Is Bukayo Saka Worth?
B: Bukayo Saka outshone Antony in the recent win over Man United. Given the latter was signed for £86m, how much do you think Saka is worth in today’s market?
I always say to myself, if Antony is worth £80m+ then imagine if Ryan Giggs was playing – he’d be worth £200million.
Antony is a very good player but the way Bukayo Saka is playing right now is frightening. The penalty miss at the Euros seems to have really spurred him on. Saka is going to be one of the best players in the world.
Saka is the go-to guy for Arsenal and he will only get better. Without a doubt he will be challenging for Ballon d’Or titles. He can do that in the next two years.
If the Ballon d’Or was awarded now, he would be in the running because he’s been stupendous and long may it continue.
Is David De Gea Staying At Manchester United?
B: David de Gea’s future remains uncertain at Man United – do you think he should sign a new deal or should United look to sign someone like Jordan Pickford?
PI: David de Gea is still a very good goalkeeper.
Eventually, most foreign players want to make their way back home and that’s natural so it wouldn’t surprise me if he wanted to go back to Spain.
At the moment, there aren’t many ‘keepers out there better than him and I think he’ll stay at Man United for now.
How Good Was Denis Irwin?
B: When looking back, would you say Denis Irwin is one of the best defenders that’s ever played the game?
Denis Irwin was one of the best full-backs there’s ever been.
Everyone looks at the goalscorers in teams but beneath that, Denis was one of the best in the world for me. He very rarely got beat and we both ended up going down to Wolves together.
His professionalism and what he gave to the team was vital. We ended up getting promoted that year and a lot of that was down to Denis Irwin. He never really gets the accolades he deserves but for me, he was one of the greatest ever.
Man United v Barcelona Europa League Prediction
B: How do you see Man United’s clash with Barcelona going?
PI: It’s exciting. If you’d asked me about this last year then I’d have feared for Man United but the resurgence spearheaded by Erik ten Hag has allowed this to be a really good game. Man United won’t sit back, he’ll be trying to win the game. It’s a mouth-watering tie this year and another challenge.
These are the types of games that should be happening at Old Trafford. Man United should be involved in cup semi-finals and big games in Europe.
Will Liverpool Sign Moises Caicedo?
B: Brighton have rejected a £60m bid for Moises Caicedo with it being reported they value him at £100m. Should Liverpool pay that fee or wait for a better option to become available?
PI: You have to admire Brighton for their recruitment over the last two or three years. They’ve just recently sold Marc Cucurella to Chelsea for £60million and now they’ve got Caicedo, who no one had heard of a year ago and three of the biggest clubs in England are trying to sign him.
Sir Alex Ferguson used to look at players for two or three years before buying them to make sure they were ready to sign for Man United.
Nowadays players are having one good season and going for £60million – it’s pure madness and will only get worse.
There’s no way I can see Liverpool stumping up £100million. I can’t see them entertaining it but they do need midfield players.
