Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand urges the club to spend more than £230m on bringing England duo Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford this summer.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged the club to spend more than £230m on bringing Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford this summer.

Sancho's future is set to be one of the hottest topics of discussion when the transfer window reopens, with a who's who of Europe's top clubs thought to be interested in his signature following another outstanding campaign with Borussia Dortmund.

Kane, meanwhile, hinted that his future could lie away from Tottenham Hotspur if the club do not begin competing for trophies, and Ferdinand has called on United to splash the cash on the England duo.

"Harry has always been coy and held back but he's dropped a couple of bombs. He's been waiting for the dream at Spurs to materialise but it hasn't happened. He's frustrated. Do you think Harry would be happy, fulfilled and satisfied if he scores goals, break records but with no trophies at the end of his career? No. He will be upset and devastated," Ferdinand said during an Instagram Q&A.

"I think that statement means Harry is off, he wants to win trophies and that will alert clubs. I know Man United will be in for him because that type of player is perfect for them. I'm sure Juventus will be in and will Real Madrid come in? He will go for massive dough, at least £130m in today's market.

"I want Jadon to go to a team where he will play, improve and get trophies. He's been linked with United, Chelsea, PSG but I think United is the place for him to go because I'm biased. [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial, Kane, Sancho, that would intimate a lot of centre-halves before a whistle is blown. Definitely.

"Of course, if he wears the seven (shirt) he has to be there for the next 10 years. That's what that shirt deserves and demands. He's flying and one of the best young kids in the world at the moment. He's a player with huge potential and will go for over £100m. You are buying someone for 10 years at your club, it's massive money but I'd take him and risk it.

"You say to him, 'You're going to be the player we build a team around and person who can get us trophies.' He's got the x-factor, skills, beats and excites people. If you go to Real, Barca, United, those stadiums want to be excited and get them off their seat. Sancho is that guy. He has all the potential to be an absolute humongous superstar. He brings the playground to the stadium."

Between them, Kane and Sancho have directly contributed to 55 goals in 60 appearances this season.
