Tottenham striker Harry Kane has explained that while he is honoured that clubs are showing an interest in him, he sees his future at White Hart Lane.
According to The Sun, the 21-year-old is wanted by Manchester United after enjoying a wonderful year in the Premier League, but Kane insists that he does not need to move to play for a top side.
“I’ve seen there’s interest and it’s flattering that other clubs are maybe interested in me,” he explained.
“But I’m happy at Spurs and I am looking forward to the future at Spurs.
“Tottenham are a big club. And that is the way people have to see it. I am at a big club now. I am also enjoying my football and that is the way I am looking forward to next season,” he added.
The youngster was revelation in the top flight last year, scoring 21 times in the league, and helping Mauricio Pochettino’s men to a fifth place finish. What makes his achievement all the more remarkable is the fact that the forward did not begin the campaign anywhere near the starting line-up, and had been restricted to substitute appearances.
Understandably, Louis van Gaal has reportedly seen something in the player that has attracted his attention. With Radamel Falcao’s loan not being made permanent, the Red Devils are looking rather thin in terms of striker options, and with United being able to offer Champions League football, they may have felt confident that they could lure Kane away from the club that means so much to him.
However, it now appears that the Dutchman may now need to look elsewhere.
