Rio Ferdinand believes that Harry Kane will be the best candidate for his number 9 role as he ditch Spurs saying the London club can’t win anything.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed Erik Ten Hag to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The Red Devils manager has been eyeing up the best candidate for the number 9 role following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five YouTube channel that United should break the bank to sign Tottenham No 9 Kane because he guarantees 20 to 25 goals per season.

He said: “Get Harry Kane in. Spurs fans, I’m sorry. You’re not going to win anything. He’s not going to win anything at Spurs. They’re in a bit of turmoil at the minute.

“Man United, if you’re going to go in the summer: let’s go and find a number nine for the next three or four years to hang our hat on, to get 20-25 goals a season every year, where are you going?

“You’re going to have to pay big money for Harry Kane. But at least you know you’re getting a man who gets 20-25 goals a season. So Harry Kane can’t be going anywhere but Man United.”

The 29-year-old striker, who has 15 goals in 18 Premier League appearances this season, is widely considered one of the best strikers in the world.

Meanwhile, United are in talks with Burnley over signing Weghorst until the end of the season, and the Holland striker has made it clear that he wants to move to Old Trafford.

Weghorst, meanwhile, only scored twice in 20 appearances for Burnley as they were relegated last season but has eight goals in 16 games in all competitions for Turkish side Besiktas, where he is currently playing on loan.

But Besiktas will only agree to end the 30-year-old’s loan spell in Turkey for the right price, and dismissed suggestions it can be cut short for £2million as ‘fictitious’.

The Istanbul club have an option to buy him for £8.5million in the summer.

United though are not giving up on signing Weghorst and remain confident a deal can still be reached.
