Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham recently stressed that Harry Kane has more of a chance to win major trophies under Antonio Conte than United at the moment although he acknowledged that it would be hard to turn United down.
Kane expressed his desire to leave Tottenham last summer by saying that he had a gentlemen’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy that would allow him to leave in the summer. The alleged agreement was not honored and Levy rejected the interest expressed by the reigning Premier League champions for the English striker’s service.
City has secured the signing of Erling Haaland making the Manchester club an unlikely destination ahead of the 2022-23 campaign although reports have suggested that the red side of Manchester could make a move for Kane.
Former Spurs and United striker Teddy Sheringham has asserted that the striker should stay at Spurs as they are in better shape at the moment rather than the uncertainty surrounding Old Trafford.
“If you’re a United fan you’d wish that Kane joins. If Harry Kane made himself available, I think every club in the world would want him on their list. Manchester United are falling down the pecking order for big players, but having said that, they are still a massive club, they’re still a massive draw,” Sheringham said.
“I think Ten Hag has a really tough job of steering the boat in the right direction being at Manchester United, I would say Tottenham have the better chance of winning trophies at the minute. I think Kane is more likely to win something at Tottenham with Conte in charge rather than at Manchester United at the moment,” he added.
Manchester United’s new boss Erik ten Hag’s reign starts at Old Trafford
Manchester United has had a pretty average season this year. They have failed to qualify for the Champions League next season and the year ending yet another year trophyless.
The United fans will be highly optimistic about ten Hag’s arrival and do you think he would be the right man to study the sinking United ship. While the season concluded with a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace, all eyes will be on Erik Ten Hag next season.
