Harry Kane was linked with a move to Manchester City during last summer’s transfer window, but a move never materialised.

The Tottenham striker had also been linked with Manchester United for some time now, and it seems City may not make a move for Kane this summer.

Kane is yet to win a trophy in his highly impactful career, and is keen on achieving it outside Tottenham.

Former Everton and Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has advised Kane that his best bet to win a trophy would be moving to Manchester United.

“With reports linking Erling Haaland to Manchester City, it may be that Harry Kane has missed the boat on a move to the Etihad,” Lescott told Live Score.

“Manchester United are one club I could see trying to lure him away in summer — and I think he’d consider that very strongly.

“For all their faults, United are closer to winning trophies than Spurs right now. Not the Premier League, but knockout competitions. You could see them winning an FA Cup or Carabao Cup.

“Somewhere like a Real Madrid or Bayern Munich would also be a good fit. But with Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski as good as ever this season, I’m not sure those are viable options.

“It would make sense for United to try for him. And if circumstances are right, it’s one I could see happening.”
