Former Arsenal playmaker Paul Merson has tipped Tottenham forward Harry Kane to join Manchester United this summer.

The England skipper is considering his future at the club, with Jose Mourinho’s side currently in 7th and outsiders to finish in the Champions League places.

That would mean a second consecutive season without Champions League football for Kane, who will be 28 by the time next season starts.

Kane is yet to win silverware in his career and though he would ideally love to do that with his boyhood club, Spurs have regressed since he signed a six-year deal in 2018.

The England captain recently admitted he will evaluate his future this summer and Merson admits he could see Kane at Old Trafford.

‘You’ve got to think they [Spurs] have a big stadium there, they have to fill that. If Harry Kane goes then I worry for Tottenham,’ Merson told Sky Sports.

‘I would absolutely worry. We saw it with Ronaldo at Man Utd, he wanted to go and he was called in and asked to give them another year, just to sort things out.

‘If everybody is back in stadiums next season then Tottenham fans will want to see Harry Kane there otherwise it’ll be pretty disappointing for those Tottenham fans.

‘Then it becomes a domino effect, all of a sudden Heung-Min Son turns around and goes ‘Well Harry Kane has gone, I want to go’ then it would really fall to pieces.

‘I think if they got in the Champions League I think he’d stay. It’s a good club, it’s a big club, they’ve got a great stadium. Sometimes it’s alright saying: “I want to go here, I want to go there” but sometimes you play your best football where you’re happiest.

‘I don’t know the lad but I know he’s married, he’s got kids and that all comes into the stiuation. There’s a lot to think about.

‘For me I think Man Utd. I just see him in a Man Utd shirt. It just fits, If i’m the owners of Manchester United I think : “Right, how can I get close to Man City, how can I give us any chance of winning the league next year?” You have to go and get Harry Kane.’
