Kane happy at Tottenham amid United links - Sheringham

The former striker reveals rejecting a bid from Old Trafford will be difficult for the England star but thinks he may not be interested in a move.

Teddy Sheringham

thinks that

Harry Kane

would be better off if he remains put at


rather than joining

Manchester United

in the summer.

The England international has attracted the attention of the Red Devils, whereas Manchester City have also been interested.

The Spurs’ failure to win a silverware seems to be the key reason why Kane might depart the club, but Sheringham thinks a move to United would not be a step forward for the England international.

The former United and Spurs striker told Genting Casino:

"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."

He added:

"Yeah, 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."

The 28-year-old is one of the two players Sheringham thinks United should go after for the summer transfer window, with the other one being

West Ham


Declan Rice


"If you look at who Manchester United should sign, I’d say Declan Rice,"

he added.

"He’s an English midfield general, and Manchester United need that type of player. But Harry Kane and Declan Rice are two of the best players in the country and the world, the two of them would be absolutely unbelievable signings.

"West Ham fans won’t like this but Declan Rice is an unbelievable player at the moment. I get stick for saying these things. West Ham should try and get him on the books for the next five years."
