Richarlison has been told to quit Tottenham Hotspur, despite only moving to north London last summer for £50 million, due to his lack of football.

Last summer, Spurs once again attempted to fix their ongoing problem of not having enough back up for harry Kane  in case he got injured.

Finding someone good enough to replace the England star but also willing to sit on the bench for much of the season is no easy conundrum to fix.

It came with a mixed reaction, with Jack Wilshere claiming he never wanted the Brazilian anyway after the forward turned down his beloved Arsenal for the other north London side.

The former Gunners’ midfielder might have been spot on because the former Everton man is yet to register a goal in the Premier League, only getting an emotional double in the Champions League.

Despite that, he is report on a shortlist for Real Madrid of players who could potentially replace Karim Benzema at the Bernabeu.

And fellow countryman Kleberson thinks the 25-year-old should quit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but reckons that Manchester United should sign the forward.

“I’d really like to see Richarlison play for Man Utd,” the former United player told OLGB, “He’s the kind of striker that could help United a lot.

“Especially with teams pressing, he can do a low block, he can put pressure on the centre-back and he can get inside the box.

“He’s played in the Premier League for many years, he understands the rules and he’s a really hard-working player. As Man Utd get more structure and consistency, winning more games, I think Richarlison is a player who could do a lot for the club.

“When Richarlison was at Everton, I think he should have gone to Manchester United instead of Tottenham. It could have been different.

“Now he doesn’t play much and he doesn’t get many opportunities. He’s competing with guys at Tottenham who are amazing players. He’s on the bench, but he’s competing with these big players.

“As a club, sometimes you need to take a risk because he’s not a bad player, he’s an amazing player.

“He plays for Brazil’s national team, he just needs game time and some confidence from the coach and the team. I believe he could easily do an amazing job for United.”

United are almost certain to sign a striker in the summer, and have been heavily linked with kane in the past , and could make a move this summer.

At the moment Ten Hag’s side are overly reliant on marcus rashfords goals, especially with Anthony Martial having missed so much of the season with injury.

The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in November left them with one less player in attack but they replaced him with Wout Weghorst in January.

He may not have had much impact on the scoresheet but the Dutchman has instead fit in perfectly due to his brilliant work rate up front
