‘A dream becomes reality’ – Harry Kane proud in becoming England’s all-time record scorer
Dion Dublin believes signing Harry Kane is a no-brainer for Man Utd – especially with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen around him. The ex-Red Devils forward urged his former side to pull out their chequebook, saying: “What can go wrong?”
Kane has been linked with a move away from Spurs this summer. The 29-year-old only has 18 months remaining on his contract, meaning the next transfer window will likely be the final chance for Tottenham to cash in on their skipper.
Utd are among the favourites to snap him up and Dublin believes he is the missing link to Erik ten Hag’s system. Despite Rashford’s brilliant resurgence this season, Dublin doesn’t believe he is the man to lead the line going forward and sees Kane as the perfect fit.
He told The Mirror: “Will it be Harry Kane? I think Manchester United want him – and I think it would work incredibly. I just want to see Harry win something as part of a team. He’s got a string of individual accolades.
“He’s the best in the business. But I just want him to be more successful within a team. I don’t want to see him win all these goalscoring awards, Golden Boots and all the rest of it without having a pot to put on the sideboard.
“The way he spoke about his England record when he surpassed Wayne Rooney’s total in Italy was high-class. He’s so chilled, focused and driven. He wants to score more goals.

“If he wins things at Spurs, I’ll be happy. If he has to leave to win things, I’ll be happy. But I want him to win some team trophies.
“Let’s be honest, if you put Harry into any side in the Premier League you could describe him as ‘the missing link.’ He’s going to score 25 goals in any of them – not just at Manchester United – and they aren’t far off at all as it is.
“But the stature of him as a player, where he is, of his quality surrounded by Marcus, Jadon Sancho, Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen – I don’t see how it can go wrong. If they can get Harry’s signing over the line, I think they will be bang in the frame to win the title.”
Rashford has been one of Utd’s best players this season, offering attacking versatility and goalscoring prowess. The England international is the club’s top scorer this season with 27 goals in all competitions and 14 in the league but Dublin affirms that they need someone that can double those numbers.
He added: “Marcus Rashford is in the form of his life. Why? I think what has changed is that he’s been given some freedom on the left.
“He can float over to the right, through the middle. That bit of freedom is good for him. He can go where he wants, and I think that’s helping him. Physically, he looks amazing. He’s playing football from the gods, and I still believe there’s loads more to come from him. He’s that good.
“What Manchester United are missing – and this is going to shock no-one but it’s true – is that 25 goal-a-season striker in Kane’s mould. Could Marcus be the answer?
“I don’t think he is THAT centre-forward. He is good enough to nick between 15-20 goals a season from wherever he wants to play.But does he want to play with his back to goal? Probably not. Is he enjoying what he is doing now under Erik? I think he is. So could he be that centre-forward? He could be – but I don’t think so.”
