Dimitar Berbatov has urged Harry Kane to follow in his footsteps and swap Tottenham Hotspur for Manchester United this summer for the good of his career.
United are set to chase Kane to continue building a formidable squad, as they look to climb out of a long slump and challenge rivals Liverpool and Manchester City once more.
Kane ignited talk of a move after saying on Instagram live he would ‘not stay at Spurs for the sake of it’, and at 26-years-old he wants to chase the trophies that are eluding Tottenham.
Berbatov made the same move north in 2008 after 102 appearances at Spurs, winning two Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson.
“The final step for me was joining Manchester United and I knew I would be making people disappointed – especially Tottenham fans – but I was following my own path,”Berbatov told the BBC.
“I knew if I missed that chance another one might not come. This is how it is in football. Sometimes you need to make tough decisions.
“The same situation is happening with Harry Kane at the moment, the exact same. He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and maybe his head is not in the right place.
“My head was not in the right place. It was the same with [Christian] Eriksen. He wasn’t really there in the last couple of games. I watched the games and I saw that his head was not there.
“Kane is in the same situation. If there is any truth in the rumours, it’s in his head, 100 per cent. The lack of trophies is the main problem for players like Kane.
“He’s not getting any younger. He wants to look back and know he won trophies. When I see Spurs play United now, even if on paper Spurs have better players, they still go there with fear.”
Kane is still yet to win a single piece of silverware with Tottenham, losing in the 2015 League Cup final to Chelsea and last season’s Champions League final against Liverpool.
Also, Spurs missed the chance to land a maiden Premier League title in 2016 when Leicester overpowered them.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
