Rafael warns Man United against big-money deals for Kane and Sancho

‘You have to see if they really want to do well for the club and are not just coming for the money’: Former Manchester United defender Rafael warns club against big-money deals for likes of Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho because of previous ‘mistakes’

  • Rafael has warned his former club about making more big-money ‘mistakes’ 
  • Manchester United are linked with Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho for high fees
  • The Lyon defender believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to lead United 

Former Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva has warned the club on pursuing top targets Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho as they might come ‘for the money’.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to strengthen his attacking options in the next transfer window and both the Tottenham striker and Borussia Dortmund winger have been linked with a move to Old Trafford. 

However, the Brazilian, who now plays for Ligue 1 side Lyon, warned Manchester United against making more ‘mistakes’ with big-money signings.

‘Harry Kane is a great goal scorer and Jadon Sancho is very, very good,’ Rafael said to ESPN. 

‘But first of all you have to see the character of the player and see if they really want to do well for United, not just coming for the money. 

‘We have made some mistakes but I hope now that we can get back on track. In this Manchester United, I see more of how they played before and I think soon we will be back where we belong.’

Over the past few years, United have made a number of big name signings that have failed to live up to their billing. Angel Di Maria, Falcao and Alexis Sanchez are some of the promising stars that have not made an impact in recent seasons.

Despite this, Rafael believes that current boss Solskjaer is the right man to lead United back to greatness. 

‘I love Ole. I love the person he is and the manager he is,’ the 29-year-old added. 

‘Of course, there is a lot still to do but I think he’s doing it the right way. He’s a person who loves Manchester United and he’s going to do everything to help the club. I saw it when I was with him when he coached me and it is important.’
