Paul Scholes believes Manchester United should push for Erling Haaland this summer (BT Sport)

Paul Scholes has urged Manchester United to sign Erling Haaland ahead of Harry Kane this summer.

Both strikers are in demand ahead of the upcoming transfer window, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bolster United’s attacking options at the end of the season.

Haaland has quickly established himself as one of the best young strikers in Europe with his excellent performances for Borussia Dortmund.

And the Norway international has attracted interest from several clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City.

Kane, meanwhile, remains tied to Tottenham until 2024, which puts Spurs in a strong negotiating position for the summer window.

But Scholes believes United would be better served by prioritising a deal for Haaland ahead of England’s captain.

‘He’s [Haaland] the best striker out there in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. it’s ridiculous what he’s doing,’ Scholes said on the Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel.

‘If you sign him now you’ll get 10 years of him.

‘With Harry Kane, at 28, 29, he’s in the peak of his career but you’re talking two or three years as a top-class striker.

‘When you get to 31, 32, you probably lose your legs a little bit, start to drop deep as he’s started to do a little bit now actually.

‘As for Haaland he’s going to cost a lot more money, they’re both going to cost a lot of money, but I think if you’re looking to the future in the next few years Haaland has to be the one.’

Scholes also believes Kane is unlikely to leave Spurs.

‘It’s all down to him, if he wants to go there’s plenty of clubs who want him, of course they will, he’s a brilliant centre forward.

‘I just get the impression he’s not going to leave.

‘I don’t know why, I’ve just got the feeling he’ll be at Tottenham until he finishes.’
