Antonio Conte warned Son Heung-Min as Gary Neville wished Cristiano Ronaldo £59m

Gary Neville has urged Manchester United to focus on signing Son Heung-Min ahead of the summer transfer window, despite being keen to see Harry Kane swap White Hart Lane for Old Trafford. The deadly Tottenham Hotspur duo have enjoyed a superb season helping Antonio Conte’s side qualify for the Champions League.

Son and Kane have played alongside each other 32 times this season in the Premier League, directly contributing to a total of nine goals between the two. They first forged a relationship on the Spurs front line in 2015 and have since become the all-time record-holder for most goals in the league, ahead of Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Of course, after impressing, Son and Kane have reportedly attracted interest from several leading European teams, although the latter more so than the former. After months of speculation linking the England captain with a move to Manchester City, a deal fell through last summer after Daniel Levy reportedly refused to negotiate a transfer for the striker with Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Premier League champions are believed to have seen a staggering £127million offer rejected by the Spurs boss and City have since secured the future of Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. Despite Guardiola’s side being out of the race for Kane, Neville has claimed the 28-year-old will remain out of bounds this summer.

Instead, the former United defender has urged his former side to take a look at Son, who is valued at around £59million by the CIES Football Observatory. Asked if he’d want Kane at Old Trafford, Neville said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football: “Absolutely if you could get him.

“I said at the beginning of last season he’s gold. I’ve worked with him for four years, he’s absolutely gold. He’ll never let you down. He’s reliable even if he misses a chance or two, the example He bets on others, he’s not a shouter or yells on the pitch, I wouldn’t move him [Cristiano Ronaldo] out but if you can bring Harry Kane to Man United you would take him.”

“They’re not going to get him, they’re not going to get him at all. Should Man take United Son? Yes,” Neville added. “They only have a centre-forward, Martial is gone.”

The former Red Devils defender concluded by declaring that Ronaldo will eventually be sidelined and join United, alluding to either Son or Kane being able to fill the No7’s boots. Neville said: “It has to happen at some point.”
