Path clear for sensational Man Utd swoop with Kane eyeing Tottenham exit

Date published: Wednesday 4th March 2020 4:10

Manchester United have emerged as Harry Kane’s ideal next destination if he leaves Tottenham at the end of the season, according to reports.

Kane, Spurs’ best player in recent seasons, has struggled this term having been out of action since New Years’ Day with a torn hamstring tendon.

Despite him closing in on a return to action, reports have indicated that the England captain would consider leaving North London in the summer if Spurs – currently five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea – fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

According to Goal, Kane’s first choice for his next move would be to Old Trafford to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rebuild.

The source adds further detail on Kane’s situation at Spurs, claiming that the 26-year-old wants immediate success rather than waiting for a Jose Mourinho-led overhaul of the Tottenham squad to bring trophies.

It is also said that Kane, who extended his contract with Spurs in the summer of 2018 with a new six-year deal, would not currently consider signing a new deal with the club.

Previous reports have suggested that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to skyrocket Kane’s wage past its current £200,000 per week mark in a bid to keep him in North London.

In other news, Kane has revealed that he is closing in on a return to action following his injury.

The striker said: “In my head, I am definitely at the Euros.

 

 

“Unless something pretty drastic happens between now and then, I’ll be there. I’m still not back training with the first team, but I’m working hard in the gym, I’m getting stronger all the time.

“We’re talking a few more weeks, and I’ll be playing again. I don’t want to make a prediction for which game I might be back, but I am hoping somewhere between the start and the middle of April.”

Spurs face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday following their FA Cup fifth-round tie with Norwich on Wednesday.
