“Manchester United will need more than Harry Kane”
“Manchester United will need more than Harry Kane to win against Manchester City,” the British newspaper “Daily Mail” claimed on the 4th (below).
Manchester United lost 1-2 to Manchester City in the English FA Cup final of the 2022-2023 season at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on 3 March at 11pm.
After conceding to Ilkay Gundogan just 13 seconds into the game, the Red Devils made it 1-1 with a Bruno Fernandez penalty in the 33rd minute, but had to settle for a runners-up finish as Gundogan struck again six minutes from time.
The Red Devils are set to make major reinforcements in the summer transfer window. In particular, they are preparing to sign Harry Kane, who scored 30 league goals for Tottenham Hotspur in the 2022-2023 season. 스포츠토토
However, the Daily Mail claims that signing Kane is not their top priority. The publication said, “United need more than Kane. They also need a new goalkeeper, midfielder, and defender to close the gap on their rivals,” said Eric ten Hagg, stressing the need for reinforcements across all positions.
The outlet added: “This FA Cup final has shown how much difference there is between Man United and Man City. United can be proud of the effort they have shown and have had a good season under Van Gaal. They moved forward and showed that they deserve to win the League Cup and qualify for the UEFA Champions League, but they also made it clear that the gap between them and City is huge.”
The Daily Mail added: “For starters, United need a new goalkeeper. They are at least four or five players short of City. The signing of Kane is not enough.”
“To implement Van Gaal’s tactics, you need the same type of player as the Man City goalkeepers. It is difficult with David De Gea, it is true that he is one of the best goalkeepers and he has been with the club for many years, but to compete for the league title you need a goalkeeper who is good underfoot.”
The outlet claimed that reinforcements in midfield and defence are also essential. The Mail added: “Of course, we need a striker who can help Marcus Rashford, whether it’s Kane or Victor Osimhen. But we also need a midfielder like Declan Rice who can help Casemiro. They also need a defender to complement Raphael Varane and Lissandro Martinez.”
