Roy Keane thinks Harry Kane “fancies a move to Manchester United” this summer, with the England captain’s future in doubt.
The Tottenham striker has been linked with a move away from the club at the end of the season, and Sky Sports are reporting that Kane will ask to leave if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League.
United are reportedly in the market for a new striker, with the likes of Kane and Erling Haaland being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
However, MEN Sport reported last month that Tottenham would not sell their star man to a fellow Premier League rival – such as United.
Former United captain Keane, though, thinks that Kane will be eyeing a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
“Martial with his injury problems, you wouldn’t hang your hat on him,” Keane said.
“Cavani is pushing on, you wouldn’t expect him to be playing every week. If United want to get back to winning titles then they certainly need another striker.”
Sky Sports presenter David Jones then asked : “Who are we talking about?”
Keane: “Kane, Haaland – I’d take any of them.”
Jones: “Who would be your choice?”
Keane: “Probably Haaland because of his age and the investment behind it, but I wouldn’t say no to Kane either if he’s the second option.
“Kane today would be looking at this United team, who have obviously made progress in the last 12 months. Surely Kane must be thinking: ‘Listen, I could be the top man at Manchester United up front’, with the service he would be getting. Kane must fancy a United move.
“I think Kane fancies United.”
Richards: “Who told you that?”
Keane: “Just a gut feeling, Micah.”

“If Kane is in the United team, then it’s as if night follows day, yeah (he’d win trophies).
“Man United have closed the gap on Man City and Kane would be a huge step.”
The pundits were speaking after United overturned a one-goal deficit to beat Tottenham 3-1 in north London.
Son Heung-min put Spurs ahead in the first-half and it wasn’t until the second period that United showed their true quality.
Fred equalised early into the second-half before Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood wrapped the match up for the Reds.
