Potential Man Utd starting XI if Harry Kane joins Memphis Depay and Real Madrid star as summer signings
Twitter stunned by by rumours Man Utd will buy Harry Kane from Tottenham
The midfielder has been a key member of Steve Bruce’s side this season, only missing one of their 36 Premier League matches. In his 35 games he has only scored once and assisted another though. With the Tigers currently in the bottom three with two games to go it will be a major blow to their hopes of staying in the division to be without him.
They are playing against Livermore’s former club Tottenham on the weekend, and need a win to keep up with Newcastle United and Sunderland. The North East rivals are both two points above Hull.
Twitter users found this both funny and the last nail in Hull’s Championship coffin…
Jake Livermore testing positive for cocaine is going to be a massive blow to Hull’s survival hopes. Right? Blow?.. Lads?
