Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham to ensure he wins the Premier League, touting Manchester United as a possible destination.
MEN Sport understands that Erling Haaland remains the top striker priority for both Manchester clubs, though Kane has interested United and Manchester City previously.
Reports in the media over the last week have claimed the 28-year-old will ask to leave Tottenham in the summer in a bid to win silverware, though he still has three years remaining on his current Spurs contract.
Kane overtook Fowler in the Premier League all-time goal scorer list and, as a result, became the highest-scoring player yet to win the trophy itself.
With that in mind, Fowler has suggested Kane could be the difference to help United win the title and avoid missing out on a major honour, as he did.
“I know I was a good enough player to be part of a team that were Champions. You score 30-plus goals in your first three seasons as a first team player, then you’re entitled to believe it would win you something,” he wrote in his Mirror column.
“You know you always hear people saying ‘I’ll think about what it means winning trophies when I’m retired’, well, if you don’t win them, well yes, you think about that too.
“Kane must believe that. He’s now scored 20-plus league goals in five different seasons, and only Alan Shearer, Sergio Aguero and Thierry Henry have done that. They’re legends…and Champions.

“He knows he probably has one big move left in him, and if he’s to ensure he has no regrets, no ‘what might have been’ moments like me, then he has to think about his future.
“Will he win a title at Spurs? Unlikely. They’re not going to even make the Champions League next season, so they’re a long way short. And they may even be looking at a new manager again in the summer. Which could mean more years of rebuilding…and waiting.
“There will be clubs interested too. Manchester United have been mentioned, strongly. And City too. Both would be strong options for him, no doubt.
“Who knows, he could be the missing ingredient United need to take that final step, and if City were to sign him, then…well, it doesn’t bear thinking about if you’re a fan of any other Premier League club.”
