Manchester United star Robbie Savage has said the club will win the 2023-24 Premier League season if they can sign Harry Kane and Frenkie de Jong this summer.
The Red Devils have made highly commendable progress since Erik ten Hag joined from Ajax at the beginning of the season and are serious title contenders, just five points behind league leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.
Ten Hag has made signing a new striker a top priority for the club this summer; Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen are top on his list of options.
United was desperate to land Barcelona star, De Jong last summer but the Netherlands international showed no interest in leaving Camp Nou for Old Trafford.
There are hopes that the potential new owners of Manchester United can bankroll some summer transfer plans, and Savage wants his old club to prioritize the signing of Kane and De Jong.
“Add Harry Kane and Frenkie De Jong to this Manchester United squad, and Erik Ten Hag could be presiding over front-runners for the title next year,” Savage wrote in his column for The Mirror.
He continued: “If they bring in two key players in the summer... United are going to challenge for the Premier League crown next season.
“So make a date with May 2024—if they add Kane and De Jong as two aces to the pack, after a lean decade, the title could be heading back to Manchester United.”
