Stan Collymore has claimed that Harry Kane will not be able to turn down Manchester United or Liverpool this summer if either club does come knocking for him.
There has been plenty of doom and gloom surrounding Tottenham recently following their elimination from the FA Cup and the Champions League, with the club now already said to be planning for life after Antonio Conte.
However, despite this, there have been some encouraging updates over Kane’s future over the last few days.
ESPN reported on Monday that Man Utd are likely to turn their attention to other alternatives as they do not want to enter into protracted negotiations with Daniel Levy over the 29-year-old.
The Athletic reported on the same day that the Spurs hierarchy remain determined to reach an agreement over a new contract with the England captain.
However, Collymore believes that Tottenham will not stand a chance of holding on to Kane if either the Reds or the Red Devils show interest in the striker.
The former Liverpool striker said to Sunday People (12/3; page 54): “After Tottenham’s Champions League exit confirmed another trophy-less season for Kane, it’s a no-brainer for him to move on and Old Trafford would be the perfect destination,”
“If he does go somewhere, it will come down to his chances of winning silverware and the supply line at his new club. But [Manchester] United, just like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Bayern, Juventus and AC Milan are an A-grade club while Chelsea, despite all their recent trophies, are B+.
“If United or Liverpool come knocking you have to go because it might only happen once.”
Spurs Web Opinion
There is no guarantee that either Liverpool or Man Utd will finish above Tottenham this season. I cannot see Kane being desperate to join a club who have finished below us or just a few points above for that matter.
Having said that, I also do not think the 29-year-old will be in a hurry to sign a new contract.
Kane will probably want to wait until the summer to see whether we finish in the top four and who replaces Conte before making a decision on his future.
