Harry Kane won’t be giving Manchester City or Manchester United a single thought while on Euro 2020 duty.
That’s according to former United and England striker Michael Owen, who claims the Three Lions captain is far too experienced to let transfer speculation affect him this summer.
Three years on from winning the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup, the wantaway Tottenham striker is expected to spearhead England’s charge for a first major international trophy since 1966.
Kane’s future at Premier League level, though, is far from certain.
Having failed to win silverware during his time at Tottenham, the ever-prolific 27-year-old, who has scored 34 goals in 54 games for his country, alerted the attention of City and United – plus several other big-hitters in Europe – amid claims he is ready to leave the North London side.
Should the Manchester clubs move for Kane this summer, though, it might cost them upwards of £120million.
The transfer saga is set to rumble on throughout the duration of Euro 2020, which will be brought to a finale at Wembley on July 11, but that will be no problem for the England skipper.
Owen, who played for United between 2009 and 2012, said: “It’s out there in the public there could be a change of club for him, so there is speculation.
Where do you think Harry Kane will end up this summer? Let us know in the comments section here.
“If he’s thinking that, he’s been thinking that for the last year so I don’t think anything is really going to change from that perspective.
“If he was an 18-year-old we could question it, but I think he’s so experienced, I can guarantee you one thing, once he crosses that line the last thing he will be thinking of is Manchester City or Manchester United or Real Madrid, his focus will be on this competition and this tournament.”
