Harry Kane warned against joining Man Utd as Premier League rivals urged to pounce
| Last updated
Harry Kane has been urged to leave Tottenham, but Manchester United might be the wrong option, according to Paul Merson.
Erik ten Hag has made Kane his prime transfer target this summer, as United seek to add a world class striker to their ranks.
The 29-yar-old has proven time and time again the quality he possesses in front of goal, and after Spurs failed to qualify for the Champions League, he may be after a new challenge.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham's sporting director Daniel Levy would sanction a sale to a direct Premier League rival, having previously played hardball over his prized asset.
However, former Arsenal midfielder Merson reckons he may be better served elsewhere, suggesting he is not guaranteed trophies at Old Trafford.
Merson warns Kane against Man Utd move
Merson admitted Kane needed to leave Tottenham this summer, while there are plenty of clubs in need of a centre-forward, including Premier League rivals Chelsea
"He has to leave Tottenham now otherwise he's never leaving because Man City have got Erling Haaland and United and Chelsea need to buy a centre-forward this summer," wrote Merson, in his Sky column .
"So, by the time Kane is a free transfer at the end of next season, everyone will have a striker.
Although Merson doesn't think he will leave north London any time soon, postulating that City are the only English club guaranteed to win trophies.
"But I don't see him leaving Tottenham. People say he has to win trophies, the only place he can guarantee winning them is at Manchester City.
"If he goes to Manchester United they could easily win nothing next season."
