The Dutch forward scored 150 goals in 219 games for the Red Devils, while Kane has already bagged 23 in all competitions this season, and Scholes claims he can see the similarities between the pair.

The 40-year-old, who was quoted by the Daily Star, said: “I have said before his finishing reminds me of Ruud. The thing about Ruud was that he never wanted to give the keeper a sniff. Kane is the same.

“Kane does not have one standout quality but he scores highly across a number of different categories. The more I watch him, the more I appreciate his temperament. You are under scrutiny playing up front and Kane seems to deal with it easily.”
