Peter Schmeichel has told Amazon Prime’s coverage of Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should consider a move to sign Son Heung-min from Spurs.
A brace from Marcus Rashford saw Manchester United produce a slightly surprising win over Jose Mourinho’s Spurs, in what was the Portuguese manager’s first return to Old Trafford as a manager following his sacking in December 2018.
Son, meanwhile, struggled to have much of an impact as Aaron Wan-Bissaka marshalled the South Korea captain well on Tottenham’s left flank. Son has been excellent this season, scoring nine goals and creating eight more in 19 games.
Despite having a quiet night, Manchester United legend Schmeichel believes the attacker would be an excellent signing for United and wants Solskjaer to go after Son – who is approaching five years following his £18million move in 2015 (Guardian).
“I would love to see him [at Old Trafford],” Schmeichel said. “Yeah, I know [there’s quite a few players I would have from Spurs]. He is an incredible player. It really is difficult to understand how good he is.”
TBR’s view – Son would be a stunning signing for Manchester United
Certainly, because United have lots of young, exuberant talent but little experience out wide. Anthony Martial is still only 23 years of age, while Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are struggling for game time in the final third.
A lot of young players are coming through. The likes of Daniel James, Tahith Chong and plenty more are still coming through and having a player like Son in their side would give those youngsters someone to learn from.
