Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has said that he is growing confident about a deal to see Tottenham talisman Harry Kane move to Old Trafford.
Kane, who has been Spurs‘ best player for a number of seasons, has picked up two Premier League Golden Boot awards but his otherwise empty trophy cabinet does not reflect the England captain’s ambition.
Indeed, the 26-year-old recently admitted that he would have no problems moving on in the search for silverware, having come closest with Spurs in the League Cup and Champions League finals.
Recent reports have heavily linked Kane with a move to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who could look to bring in attacking reinforcements when the transfer window opens.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Berbatov – who successfully made the move from Tottenham to United – explained why he can see similarities between Kane’s and his own situation.
“I see a lot of similarities in the situation I went through and what is happening with Kane,” the Bulgarian said.
“I feel that it’s also a similar time in his career that I was at, you start to think if you’re on the right path and you think about winning things.
“There is a strong connection between Spurs and Manchester United, Teddy Sheringham was at Tottenham then went to Old Trafford, I was a Spurs striker and went to United and now Kane, who’s also a striker, is being linked with a move there.”
Kane admitted on Instagram last month: “I love Spurs, I’d always love Spurs, but it’s one of them things, I’ve always said if I don’t feel progression in the team or it’s going the right direction then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it.
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better. I want to become one of the top top players.
“It all depends what happens with the team and how we progress as a team.”
In other news, former Millwall goalkeeper Maik Taylor has explained how he saw Kane begin to blossom as a youth player when the pair worked together at the London club.
