Manchester United owners the Glazers have been told they must invest this summer in order to make the Red Devils Premier League title contenders again. Former United assistant manager Rene Meulensteen believes the signing of Harry Kane from Tottenham would go a long way to making Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side competing for top spot in England again.
United fans protested in their thousands against the Glazer family on Sunday.
Some supporters gained access to Old Trafford and also surrounded the Lowry Hotel which housed the players ahead of the match with Liverpool.
The match was postponed due to the disruption caused by the supporters.
Speaking on Monday, Meulensteen insisted it is down to the Glazers to put their hands in their pockets and bring in the signings Solskjaer wants this summer.

And the Dutchman believes Tottenham talisman Kane is the ideal player to bring the glory back to United.
“To compete and win the title you have to invest,” Meulensteen told talkSPORT.
“If United would be able to bring Harry Kane in, I think they would really become Premier League title contenders.
“Whether that’s going to happen, we’ll have to see. We’ve got some really good kids coming through.

“But they need a bit of investment. If they would be able to invest and bring someone like Harry Kane in it would make a massive difference.”
Legendary former United captain Roy Keane also believes Kane is the type of signing his old club should be bringing in.
Keane would also like to see Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish make the move to Old Trafford.
He said on Sky Sports: “You know who I’d love to see here, the two players I’ve thought about over the past couple of weeks who I think would be brilliant for Man United, I’d go for Harry Kane, whatever it costs.
“I’d also go for Grealish – I think United are still short of that special player, I think Grealish would give them that. He’d enjoy playing at Old Trafford, I think the fans would love him.
“What I admire about Jack, I think he’s got great courage on a football pitch, he’s great in tight areas, over the last year or two, his end product has improved, he’s an excellent player.
“We know Kane would guarantee goals. Would it be difficult to get these two players? You bet your life it would be, but Man United have to go and try and get the best otherwise we’ll be having the same conversation next year about United nearly being there.”
