Neil Warnock has told Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast show (07.35, Friday) that Tottenham Hotspur should consider a move for Dalian Yifang striker Salomon Rondon, amid reports he is being linked with Manchester United.
The Times have claimed that Rondon, 30, is a name on Manchester United’s shortlist as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side look to bring in a striker with Marcus Rashford injured. The Chinese Super League could be about to suffer a huge outgoing of players.
That is because of the coronavirus that has now touched every Chinese region – including Tibet. The disease, which has taken 170 lives, is now persuading Chinese Super League players to leave the country, and Rondon could be one of those.
The former Newcastle loanee – who scored 12 goals in 33 games while on loan on Tyneside – has only played 12 times for Rafa Benitez’s Yifang but he could now depart. Warnock reckons he would be perfect for Spurs, despite being linked with United.
