After a spectacular 2014-15 season, Harry Kane has been linked with Manchester United.
The 21-year-old scored 31 goals in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur last season, being named PFA Young Player of the Year as only Sergio Aguero scored more goals than him in the Premier League.
English captain Wayne Rooney has fueled rumours of Kane’s transfer by praising the young Englishman for his performance in the past season, saying it would be “exciting” to play alongside him.
United also revealed that they would be willing to spend £45m to lure Kane from the Spurs, although there has been no contact between the clubs and Kane as of yet.
United are in need a prolific striker in front of goal. With Kane’s record at such a young age, the expectation is that they can expect many more goals from the English youngster in seasons to come, should he choose to leave Tottenham.
However, a move from the Spurs does not seem likely for Kane. He reaffirmed his desire to stay on with his boyhood club in response to rumours connecting him with United.
“I’ve been watching Sky Sports and I have seen there is interest. But that is all I know. It is flattering to be interested and for other clubs to maybe be interested. But, as I say, I am happy at Spurs and I am looking forward to the future at Spurs.
“Tottenham are a big club. And that is the way people have to see it. I am at a big club now, I am enjoying my football and that is the way I am looking forward to next season.”
If Kane continues to score goals at this rate and doesn’t win much silverware for it in the next few years, the situation could change, especially if United are still interested.
However, with Kane’s apparent commitment to Spurs, his goalscoring prowess, and his popularity with the fans, it’s unlikely that he will be leaving White Hart Lane this summer.
