Tottenham striker Harry Kane is very hot in demand, as the 27-year-old is now keen to leave Spurs at the end of the season in search of trophies.

Kane has often reiterated that he wants to win trophies, and it’s something Tottenham haven’t offered him, despite his 220 goals in 334 appearences for the north London club.

Kane is yet to win anything with Spurs despite being regarded as one of the world’s best strikers, with no major trophy in his career so far.

According to reports, Kane has told Tottenham that he wants to leave the club at the end of the season.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are the three clubs to have been linked with the Tottenham star, but Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes he’d favour a move to Manchester over Chelsea because of Spurs London rivalry with the Blues.

“I don’t think he’d go wrong playing for any of the three clubs really,” Scholes said on the Webby and O’Neill show.

“I don’t think coming to Manchester would be a problem for him he’s very professional, he seems like a quiet lad to come into a big club.

“There’s a rivalry between Tottenham and Chelsea and I’m not sure going to Chelsea would be an option he’d like to take.

“We all know what a quality player he is I’m sure every United fan would love to have him here. ‘It’s just a question of, though, it’s alright saying he wants to leave Tottenham but the price tag they put on it, the club might not pay for it and we all know what Daniel Levy is like at Tottenham – he does well out of us.

“You’re probably getting the best three or four years of his career right now. 90 million? I don’t know if that’s a little bit too much. £70m-ish?

“I don’t think he’s going to sell for anything less than that I think he will want more. He could want more than £100m.”
