Manchester United Ready to Sign Second Robin van Persie
Who should replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a permanent basis? And all signs lead to Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique, and Erik ten Hag as the candidates. If the current PSG manager is appointed, he may be able to sign Harry Kane and mold him into the club’s next Robin van Persie.
Regardless of who is in charge, Manchester United will recruit a new forward this summer.
On Friday, interim manager Ralf Rangnick confirmed this, saying the club would want to sign a younger version of Edinson Cavani.
Cavani is anticipated to leave United at the end of the season in the summer. He planned to depart a year ago, but after a solid finish to the season, he ended up renewing his contract.
If Pochettino is hired by United, it’s likely that the Argentine will want a reunion with Kane.
For many years, Kane has been a world-class player. Since Pochettino’s departure, he’s performed admirably under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.
Yet, when he was at his happiest, he was with the Argentine.
Pochettino aided Kane’s development into the A-lister he is now, putting his trust in the England international while he was still learning the game.
Kane, a striker for Tottenham Hotspur, scored 21 goals in 34 league games during the 49-year-first old’s season in charge.
The top-rated English forward scored 25 goals from 38 games the following season, and 29 goals from 30 appearances the following season.
Harry Kane scored 30 goals in the Premier League the next season under Mauricio Pochettino, before still managing 17 goals from 28 games in the 2018/2019 season as Tottenham reached the Champions League final.
While Kane has battled for consistency this season under Antonio Conte, he remains a gold mine.
If Pochettino reunites with the player at Old Trafford, there’s a chance he may help him become the club’s next Van Persie.
