Man United should go for Aguero, not Kane, says Cole

The Red Devils are set to make a bid worth around €70m for the Tottenham striker but the ex-England international feels spending big money on the 21-year-old is a big gamble Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has urged the Red Devils to forget about signing Harry Kane this summer and instead lodge an audacious bid for Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.
Kane enjoyed a remarkable breakthrough season in 2014-15 as he scored 21 Premier League goals as well as netting just seconds into his England debut.
The Old Trafford side are set to test Tottenham's resolve and make a bid worth up to €70 million for Kane and would offer up Nani, Adnan Januzaj and Javier Hernandez in exchange.

But Cole, who scored 121 goals during his time with the 20-time English champions, feels bringing the 21-year-old to the club may prove to be too much of a big step and would instead look to add pace to United's attack with Aguero.
"There's talk of Harry Kane. He's had a brilliant first season. But then can he come to Manchester United? And if it is true, for £40m (€55m), can he bring to Manchester United what they need?" he told Goal.
"I think the kid's talented. We have to be honest, he's had half a season where everything went for him, like penalties at the keeper and rebounds are coming straight to his feet.
"He's scored some goals. But to take that leap, because your second season in the Premier League is always tough, if it did happen and he was to leave Tottenham and come to United and for them to pin all their hopes on him - that's a hell of a lot of pressure for that money.
"Manchester United need to compete in Europe and for the championship as well. He's a baby and still learning his trade.
"Whoever comes to Manchester United as a centre forward is going to be under a hell of a lot of pressure. They need to get somewhere and if I was being cheeky, I would give you £60m (€82m) for Aguero because Aguero, fit, is the best centre forward in the Premier League.
"Fit, firing, hes unbelievable. You can imagine him playing alongside Wayne Rooney. It wouldn't be bad, would it?"
