Harry Kane Told Not To Sign For Manchester City

Harry Kane has been told to snub Manchester City this summer and instead pick either Chelsea or Manchester United, if he's allowed to leave Tottenham Hotspur.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Kane had told Spurs he wanted to leave the club this summer and worse still, he wants to stay in the Premier League.

With their spending power, ability to win trophies seemingly at will, and the fact they need to replace their star striker, City are favourites to sign the England striker.

Chelsea and United are also amongst the sides expected to make a move for the 27-year-old, and Liverpool legend John Barnes thinks Kane should pick one of those two sides.

"As far as the three clubs go, he should pick Chelsea or Manchester United rather than Manchester City," Barnes told Bonus Code Bets.

"If he goes to Manchester City, he is not going to be the player he is at Tottenham, because at Tottenham he is the creator, goal scorer and the focal point for everything.

"Whereas, at Manchester City, he wouldn't be that as there are other players that provide for him, it is a more comprehensive way of playing that he wouldn't be used to.

"Chelsea and Manchester United need a centre forward. Manchester United have good players around them. They have got Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood, but they really need a number nine.

"Chelsea also need a striker, and it seems as if Thomas Tuchel doesn't fancy Tammy Abraham or Timo Werner."

Whist City are losing Sergio Aguero in the summer, with the club's all time top scorer not renewing his contract, Pep Guardiola's side are looking for a new striker.

They have however walked away with this season's title without a number nine, so Guardiola may be wary of spending so much on a player that will require him to change a system that has worked so well.

Chelsea's scoring problems have been well documented this season, despite spending big on Timo Werner and Kai Havertz last summer.

The Blues' top scorer in the league is Jorginho on just seven, with all of them coming from the penalty spot, with Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Werner all on six.

United have had their own striker issues in recent seasons, and, despite Edinson Cavani staying for another year, their fortunes would undoubtedly be improved by Kane,

The player appears adamant that he wants to leave, despite having three years left on his contract in north London, and looked to be saying goodbye to fans during their loss to Aston Villa in midweek.

During the team's latest frustrating performance the Premier League's joint top scorer this season seemed to mutter "What's the f**king point" to himself.
