Frank McAvennie has revealed he can “definitely see” Tottenham striker Harry Kane leaving for Manchester United, despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
Kane has been one of the Premier League’s best talents since breaking through at Spurs. Indeed, in 313 top-flight appearances he’s scored 206 goals and provided 49 assists.
He’s once broken the 30-goal mark, doing so from 37 games in the 2017/18 campaign.
Spurs have not surpassed the third-placed finish they managed that season since. While Kane has been a consistent performer for years, nobody has pulled as much weight as he has.
As such, the prospect of a move could be a genuine one. Indeed, recent reports have suggested following Antonio Conte leaving the club, Kane could do the same.
Those reports stated he will delay the decision on a new contract – his current one runs out next summer – until a new manager is appointed.
If he can’t see himself thriving under the new manager, he could well up sticks. That he’s continued to thrive despite an uncertain managerial situation this season could push him away.
Indeed, he’s scored 24 league goals this term, so he might have an eye on what might be possible in a better environment.
Interest from Manchester United and PSG will surely be on his mind, too.
Kane wouldn’t ‘fit in’ at PSG
Indeed, PSG have reportedly made Kane their no.1 target for the summer. Alongside them, interest from Man Utd has been reported for months, and it seems that interest is strong.
While both are in pursuit, former top-flight footballer McAvennie feels a move to PSG is unlikely, as is a move to United’s local rivals Manchester City.
“They’ve got [Kylian] Mbappe, Neymar and [Lionel] Messi, I do not know where Harry would fit into that system,” he told Football Insider.
“I do not think he is the kind of player that can do the tippy tappy stuff. We saw at the World Cup that that is not his game.
“That is what PSG do, I can also tell you this also why Man City is not his club.”
Indeed, a move to City – who have not been heavily linked anyway – seems very unlikely given the quality of Erling Haaland and of the side now that he’s there.
McAvennie ‘can see’ Kane wanting Man Utd move
McAvennie does believe that United would be a good home for Kane, though.
“From what I know, Harry Kane would be ideal for Man United, they need a number nine plain and simple. I can see it definitely happening, him leaving Spurs for United,” he added.
Indeed, Kane seems a good snare for United. A player who’s banged in goals each season of his top-flight career would give them the lift they need to challenge for the title.
They’ve been in good form of late and it seems what they’re really missing is a quality no.9. Kane is certainly that and the move would allow him better resources than what he’s got at Spurs.
As such, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he chose not to extend at the north London outfit, in the hopes a move away will come to fruition.
