"His stats say that he is a goalscorer, he will make and score lots of goals. I just think we already have three forwards or wide men that are very similar to Sancho, possibly not quite as good as him, but potentially I think they could be."

Scholes said Kane is the out-and-out goalscorer United need right now.AdvertisementAdvertisement"I think if that is Harry Kane you are talking about, I would be more desperate to sign him than Sancho at this stage," he added."I just think United need a centre forward, a real No.9, a real goalscorer, and Kane would be that man for me."
