Phil Neville believes Manchester United signing Harry Kane will hinder the development of players like Mason Greenwood at the club.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the England international for some time but the interest was reignited when the attacker admitted that he wants to win titles.
Kane has won the Premier League highest goals scorer award on two occasions but has failed to help Spurs win any silverware since he joined them.
The North Londoners were close to winning their first trophy in about a decade last month but they lost by a narrow margin to Manchester City in the EFL Cup final at Wembley Stadium.
Phil who is the current Inter Miami boss added that instead of signing Kane, he would give Edinson Cavani an extension
When he was asked about his former club's search for a new striker, the 44-year-old was quoted by talkSport while speaking with twin sister Tracey on Drivetime, saying:
“Oh, I’d sign Cavani. I think when you talk about brilliant strikers. Cavani was world-class this week. For a player who has come in on a free transfer, he is everything you want in a centre-forward.
“I know a lot of people are talking about Harry Kane, and I think Harry Kane is world-class, but I think in Cavani they’ve got someone who can definitely produce the goods for another 12 months and the club would not have to pay the types of money that you have to pay for somebody like Harry Kane.
“I think if you bring in somebody like Harry Kane you’re also blocking the path for somebody like Mason Greenwood, who I think is one of the best finishers in the game.
“Ultimately, United have to create a pathway for Mason Greenwood to actually become the number nine. He’s going to be the number nine without a shadow of a doubt – he’s the best finisher at that club.
