Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has given Manchester United a massive transfer greenlight after expressing his desire to become the all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.

Kane’s future at Tottenham has been the subject of intense speculation, with reports linking him to several top European clubs, including Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

The 29-year-old, who is currently on international duty with England, spoke to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on the phone after breaking the country’s all-time scoring record against Italy, according to CaughtOffside.

During the conversation, Sunak asked Kane whether he wants to overtake Alan Shearer’s Premier League tally of 260 goals, to which Kane replied that it was “definitely there” and something he would “love to do.”

Kane has scored 204 goals in the Premier League and is hoping to beat Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals.
