“Harry Kane must fancy Manchester United”

Amid growing doubts over Kane’s future with Tottenham, Keane has suggested a move to Old Trafford is possible.

Roy Keane believes Harry Kane ‘fancies’ Manchester United as doubts over his future grow.

The striker could reportedly hand in a transfer request at the end of the season if Tottenham cannot land the all-important top-four spot in the Premier League, which secures entry into the Champions League.

A 3-1 home defeat to United on Sunday, however, was a crushing blow. Spurs must now recover from a six-point deficit to fourth-placed West Ham with only seven games remaining.

“For Kane, he’d be looking at this United team today and listen they’ve made progress over the last 12 months and surely Kane must be thinking: ‘I could be the top man at Manchester United up front,’” Red Devils legend Keane told Sky Sports.

“With the service he’d be getting, Kane must fancy United.”

A lack of silverware with Spurs is another reason the 27-year-old may consider a summer exit. However, United haven’t won any titles since 2016/17 either.

“If Kane is in the United team, as night follows days yeah,” said Keane when asked if the England skipper can guarantee silverware at Old Trafford.

“Manchester United have closed the gap on City and Kane would be another huge step. Maybe he doesn’t want to go abroad, Manchester United are still a huge, huge pull.”
