Man Utd legend Solskjaer hints at agreeing with Keane over Spurs striker Kane

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted he would like to sign a striker like Harry Kane.

Solskjaer's former United teammate Roy Keane said the Norwegian should target Spurs striker Kane following Sunday's draw with Liverpool.

"Roy's quite straightforward, isn't he?" Solskjaer smiled. "For us it's working hard. Getting Anthony back is gonna be a massive boost for us and I'm sure when Anthony [Martial] comes back that'll help Marcus [Rashford] as well.

"With the forwards we've got and the pace, I'm looking forward to the next few weeks."

He added: "There aren't many Lewandowskis and Harry Kanes. They're like Shearer, Van Nistelrooy - fantastic goalscorers.

"Ours are different types of players but I have to say I like someone who can finish half a chance and [Kane] does that. He's one of the best but he's a Tottenham player."
