Harry Kane Urged To Reject Real Madrid And Sign For Manchester United
That's the view of former Spurs ace Rafael van der Vaart who has advised Kane to stay in England amid speculation linking him with a mega move to Real.
The Dutchman agreed with Roy Keane's stance on Kane before explaining why the Three Lions captain should leave the capital and head up north.
"He (Keane) is right, although, of course, he is the man at Tottenham," he said.
"It may sound crazy, but you would almost say go to Manchester United or something, stay in England."
Van der Vaart, who played for the Spanish giants before his stint at Spurs, added: "Usually, it's not such a success when an English player goes to Madrid."
The 27-year-old forward is enjoying yet another prolific campaign this season.

But he has failed to land a major trophy, though he could finally get his hands on silverware when his side face Manchester City in the League Cup final at the end of the month.
And United legend Keane believes a lot depends on that final regarding Kane's future.
The Irishman said: "He's a professional. If you're a top player you want to win trophies.
"It's a big few months coming up for Tottenham, the League Cup final [against Man City], can they get in the top four? Huge question marks.
"Will that influence him? He's obviously under contract, Tottenham will have a lot to say about it.
"But if you're in his shoes and it comes to the summer, I think the guy has to move on to really win the big prizes. He's not going to do it at Tottenham."
Kane has been an ever-present since breaking into the first team, making over 200 league appearances and scoring an impressive 160 league goals.
But could this season be his last in a Spurs shirt? Watch this space.
