Scholes: 'Man United should target Kane over Sancho'

Paul Scholes claims that Manchester United should be targeting Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane over Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho this summer.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has claimed that the Red Devils should be prioritising a move for Harry Kane over Jadon Sancho during this summer's transfer window.

United continue to be linked with a big-money swoop for Sancho, although it remains to be seen whether the English giants can agree a transfer fee with Borussia Dortmund.

Kane's future has also been the subject of much speculation with Tottenham Hotspur missing out on a Champions League spot for the 2020-21 campaign.

Scholes has branded Sancho "a top-quality footballer", but the Englishman believes that Kane would be a better signing for his former club at this moment in time.

"I think if that's Harry Kane you're talking about now, I'd be more desperate to sign him than Sancho at this stage, although don't get me wrong, as I said I think he's a top-quality footballer," Scholes told BT Sport.

United, who finished third in the 2019-20 Premier League table to secure a return to the Champions League for next season, will face Copenhagen on Monday night in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
