Kane over Sancho claim made by former United coach
Rene Meulensteen believes his old club Manchester United should be targeting an elite striker like Harry Kane ahead of Jadon Sancho.
Borussia Dortmund are reportedly ready to agree a compromise over their Sancho demands.
The Bundesliga side are adamant that they will not drop their £108m valuation for the England star, which United will struggle to pay in one go this summer.
United had put together a package of £70m paid up front with the rest in add-ons and instalments, which include bonuses for winning the Premier League and Champions League.
Yet Dortmund do not want their income to be affected by how Sancho does at United however Meulensteen believes United should be targeting a prolific goalscorer this summer.
He told talkSPORT: “They first need to solve and get clarity about the goalkeeping position because now there’s a debate about De Gea and the rumours with Schmeichel, but also Henderson is there.
“So that needs to be solved to make sure that’s clear.People are on De Gea’s back, but he’s still a very good goalkeeper; he’s had a few blips this season, he needs to sort that out.
“They also need someone next to Harry Maguire to strengthen that [defence]. ‘They’re bringing Jadon Sancho in, but more than anything, I would have gone for a more prolific out-and-out striker, somebody like Harry Kane.
“There is so much creativity coming from midfield with [Bruno] Fernandes, [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial… they can all contribute to goalscoring.
“But [they need] somebody in the middle who’s going to score 25-plus goals. That will close the gap for United.”(Image: AFP/Getty Images)

"The United States expects all UN Member States to fully comply with their obligations to implement these measures,” Pompeo said in a statement. “In addition to the arms embargo, this includes restrictions such as the ban on Iran engaging in enrichment and reprocessing-related activities, the prohibition on ballistic missile testing and development by Iran, and sanctions on the transfer of nuclear- and missile-related technologies to Iran, among others.”
Pompeo said that if UN Member States don’t back the sanctions, the U.S. “is prepared to use our domestic authorities to impose consequences for those failures and ensure that Iran does not reap the benefits of UN-prohibited activity.”
"In the coming days, the United States will announce a range of additional measures to strengthen implementation of UN sanctions and hold violators accountable," Pompeo added.
Other UN members have rejected the idea that the U.S. could reimpose the UN sanctions that had been lifted under the Iran Nuclear Deal, which the Trump administration withdrew from in 2018. The UNSC will likely not recognize the snapback sanctions.
Iranian ambassador to the UN, Majid Takht Ravanchi, said the sanctions were “null and void.”
“US’ illegal & false ‘deadline’ has come and gone.” Ravanchi wrote on Twitter, warning that the U.S. “swimming against int’l currents will only bring it more isolation.”
According to The Guardian Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, called the sanctions a "false claim" that will not happen.
“The Americans claim that ... within a few hours, the resolutions [sanctions] will return. But they themselves realize that this is a false claim,” Zarif reportedly said on a state television network. “The Americans as a rule act as a bully and impose sanction ... The world community should decide how to act towards bullying."Tags Donald Trump Mike Pompeo Iran–United States relations United Nations Security Council Resolution Sanctions against Iran
