Roy Keane believes Harry Kane ‘must fancy’ a move to Manchester United following the club’s 3-1 win at Tottenham on Sunday.
Spurs’ hopes of securing a top four finish and Champions League qualification suffered a huge blow after a 3-1 defeat to the Red Devils in north London, Jose Mourinho’s side now six points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham with just seven games of the season remaining.
Recent reports have suggested that Kane will ask to leave the club this summer if they miss out on Champions League football, with the England captain keen to fulfil his ambitions of winning major silverware.
Manchester City and Manchester United have both been linked with a move for the 27-year-old and Keane believes Kane will ‘fancy’ a move to the latter give their improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“Kane today will be looking at this United team and they’ve made progress over the last 12 months,” Keane said on Sky Sports.
“Surely Kane must be thinking: ‘I could be the top man at Man United up front’. With the service he’d be getting, Kane must fancy a United move.
“I think Kane fancies United. I’ve just got a feeling.”
Fellow pundit Micah Richards also discussed Kane’s future beyond this season, suggesting the striker may prefer to move to a side with an immediate chance of trophies with Manchester City also set to be in the market for a new centre-forward this summer.
Despite their lack of silverware in recent seasons though, Keane believes his former side still remains a ‘huge pull’ for players.
“No doubt Man City are obviously going to buy as well, of course,” he added. “But maybe Kane doesn’t want to go abroad, maybe he likes playing in England. He knows the league inside out and Man United are still a huge, huge pull.”
