Man Utd news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives verdict on Roy Keane backing Harry Kane transfer | Football | Sport

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted Harry Kane is a once in a generation striker – but insisted he is happy with Manchester United forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

The United manager responded to Roy Keane’s assertion that the acquisition of the Tottenham striker would prove an instant solution to the Red Devils’ problems in front of goal.

But, speaking on the eve of the club’s Europa League Group L clash against Partizan Belgrade, Solskjaer smiled when Keane’s comments were put to him.

“Roy’s quite straightforward isn’t he? For us it’s working hard, getting Anthony back is going be a massive boost for us and I’m sure when Anthony comes back that’ll help Marcus as well,” Solskjaer said.

“With the forwards we’ve got and the pace, I’m looking forward to the next few weeks.

“There aren’t many Robert Lewandowskis and Harry Kanes, they’re like Alan Shearer, Ruud Van Nistelrooy – fantastic players.

“Ours are different types of players but I like someone who can finish half a chance and he does that.

“Marcus’s played with Harry and knows how good he is but he’s a Tottenham player.”

United goalkeeper David de Gea has not travelled to Belgrade but the Solskjaer insisted the move is purely precautionary and that the Spaniard will be fit to face Norwich on Sunday.

Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic are expected back in Manchester before the weekend after warm-weather training in Dubai.

Solskjaer had no news of Paul Pogba’s fitness, despite the midfielder having a scan on his injured ankle on Monday.

United will be looking to put a six-game winless run behind them when they take on Partizan in Belgrade on Thursday night.

Solskjaer’s side have failed to secure victory in normal time since they beat Astana 1-0 at Old Trafford last month.

They will have been buoyed, though, by their improved performance in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool.
