Pundit thinks Spurs star would jump ship if Man United came calling 

Former Millwall goalkeeper Bryan King has said that Guglielmo Vicario would leave Tottenham Hotspur if Manchester United showed interest in the Spurs number one in the summer.

It is fair to say that not all Spurs fans were completely convinced by the club’s signing of Vicario last summer, with many viewing him as the Lilywhites simply taking the cheaper option to David Raya.

However, the Italian has not put a foot wrong since stepping out onto the pitch and has not only showcased his excellent shot-stopping skills but also his proficiency in playing out from the back, which is crucial given the way Ange Postecoglou want his side to play.

Onana, another goalkeeping import from Serie A, arrived in the Premier League with a much bigger reputation and for a much higher fee but the Cameroonian has not always had the smoothest of first seasons at Old Trafford.

Would a move to Man United tempt Vicario?

While the 27-year-old has improved of late after an extremely poor start to life at Man Utd, King believes that the Red Devils need to update on the former Inter star and suggested that Viacario would be a good fit for Erik Ten Hag’s men.

The pundit, who used to work as a scout for Spurs in the past, told Tottenham News: “Andre Onana won’t win Manchester United anything. From United’s perspective, I think they should go out and sign Vicario.

“If they want to spend money, then spend money on players who are proven in the Premier League. Vicario would be tempted by a move to Old Trafford, without a doubt.”

Spurs Web Opinion

This is a completely nonsensical statement by King for several reasons. Firstly, the idea that Vicario would leave Tottenham for a side that is likely to finish below the Lilywhites in the table does not make much sense. Secondly, the chances that Daniel Levy will entertain any approach from United for the Italian is a big fat zero.
