Harry Kane’s apparent transfer to Manchester United is making all sorts of headlines once again, after reports that Spurs have received a “huge offer” from the Red Devils.
Harry Kane made a name for himself in the 2014/15 season after scoring a massive 31 goals for Spurs. He was also voted the PFA Young Player of the Year. The youngster also earned an England call-up for his displays, scoring 79 seconds into his international debut.
Kane’s rise to the top has been impressive, however even still he has his critics from both fans and pundits alike. The term ‘one season wonder’ is thrown around a lot in football, and this is a term used to describe Harry Kane by many. In fairness to Harry Kane, the Premier League is one of, if not the best league in the world. To score 20+ goals in the Premier League is some achievement at just 21-years-old.
The latest round of reports come due to him being left out of the Spurs squad in the pre-season game against AC Milan, something which the commentator for the game described as being because of a huge bid from United.
In June, Kane played down reports of a United move and revealed he would like to stay at Spurs despite United’s interest. Saying Spurs are one of England’s “big clubs”.
“I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs.” The hitman said.
“I have seen there is interest but that’s all I know. It is flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested.”
Kane’s impressive debut year has led to big speculation linking him with a move to United, who are reportedly hoping to seal a £30 million deal for the 21-year-old.
When asked if it would be hard to turn down one of the Premier League’s “big clubs”, Kane said: “Tottenham are one of the big clubs. That is the way people have to see it. I am at a big club.”
