Keane says Man United must sign Jack Grealish and Harry Kane if they want to win the Premier League title

Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has urged the club to sign Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer.

The former Republic of Ireland midfielder stated that it is the only way Manchester United can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Keane said: “I still think they need two or three players before challenging Man City. They are short. They still need a world-class striker and another midfielder, and a centre-half.

“I would prioritise a striker and midfielder. I would love to see Harry Kane upfront —whatever it costs. And I would also go for Jack Grealish.

“I think United are still short of special players, and Grealish would give them that. I think he’d enjoy playing at Old Trafford, and the fans would love him. He has great courage on a football pitch; he always wants the ball in tight areas. His end product has improved, and I think Jack would be ready for Man United.

“Having Kane here with him would guarantee goals.”

There is no doubt that the Red Devils need to sign a world-class striker who can score consistently, and Harry Kane would be a sensational addition to the side.

The likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are better suited to the wide roles, and Harry Kane could leave the line so the Old Trafford outfit next season.

Meanwhile, Jack Grealish has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months, and the Aston Villa midfielder adds some much-needed creativity to their midfield.

Grealish has been outstanding for Aston Villa this season and is ready to play for a bigger club. A move to Old Trafford would allow him to play Champions League football, and the transfer would be mutually beneficial for all parties.

 Kane and Grealish are likely to cost astronomical sums of money, and it will be interesting to see if Manchester United can afford them in the current financial climate. The club are already reeling from the effects of the pandemic, and spending club-record fees on two players in the same window might be difficult for them.
