Man United could sign next Willian after journalist's bid update - Robinson
Paul Robinson has claimed Man United would be tasking “a risk” signing N’Golo Kante despite the fact he is still “world-class.”
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England goalkeeper suggested the 31-year-old could flop at Old Trafford as Willian did at Arsenal.
According to The Guardian‘s Jacob Steinberg (28 May), Man United are considering a bid for Kante this summer.
The France international has struggled with injury over the past 12 months.
His contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of June 2023.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs if Kane would be a welcome addition at Old Trafford, Robinson said: “Kante has had his injury problems but he is still a brilliant player.

“He is still world-class level.
“United cannot afford to sign solely for the future. They need to change things and they need to change things now. Kante is a player who could change that dressing room straight away.
“If he is not going to be a regular start at Chelsea I could see that working.
“The worry is, Chelsea have a knack of selling players on when they are no longer at the top, top level.
“Just look at Willian for example. I thought it was going to be a great signing for Arsenal but it did not work. He has never been the same player since.
“That is a risk United would run.”
