Teddy Sheringham has claimed that Harry Kane is more likely to win a trophy next season if he stays at Tottenham Hotspur than he would be if he joined Manchester United.
Kane seemingly no longer has the option of joining Manchester City anytime soon after Pep Guardiola’s men snapped up Ering Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
It was reported back in March that Man Utd were set to prioritise a move for the England captain during this summer’s transfer window (The Athletic).
However, according to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, Spurs will not consider selling the 28-year-old this summer despite him being down to the final two years of his contract.
Kane hinted in an interview to The Evening Standard this week that he might be open to committing his future to Tottenham if Conte sticks around, admitting that he is enjoying working with the Italian.
Sheringham believes that Spurs are more likely to win silverware under Conte than United are under Erik Ten Hag.
The former United and Tottenham striker told Genting Casino (as relayed by The Express): “If you were a United fan you’d wish that Kane joins. If Harry Kane made himself available, I think every club in the world would want him on their list.

“Manchester United are falling down the pecking order for big players, but having said that, they are still a massive club, they’re still a massive draw.
“If they do come calling, it’ll be hard to turn them down. Even if they’re not in any European competitions next season, it would still be a very tough thing to say no to Manchester United.
“I think it’s all about the managers that are going to be in charge and if you’re being led in the right manner. I think Ten Hag has a really tough job of steering the boat in the right direction being at Manchester United.
“I would say Tottenham have the better chance of winning trophies at the minute. I think Kane is more likely to win something at Tottenham with [Antonio] Conte in charge rather than at Manchester United at the moment.
“I think Kane will stay at Spurs. He looks happy again, just going on body language and what his demeanour is like in and around the place.
“He obviously had a four or five-month period where things were rocky but I see him back on form again now, enjoying his football, he looks like he’s happy to stay where he is.”
Spurs Web Opinion
There is no chance that Kane would consider joining Man Utd this summer, given that they have not qualified for the Champions League and are taking a gamble with Ten Hag’s appointment.
The striker will certainly want to see what Conte can achieve in his first full season at Spurs. Hopefully, the Italian can get the Lilywhites challenging for honours next season, which convinces Kane to pen a new contract with the club.
