Berbatov urges Harry Kane to follow his path amid Man Utd transfer interest

Harry Kane has been urged to put himself before Spurs if Manchester United come calling this summer

The warning has come from Dimitar Berbatov who quit north London for Old Trafford in 2008.

Berbatov clinched two Premier League titles in four years at United and believes Kane will satisfy his lust for silverware by making the same move.

“I see a lot of similarities in the situation I went through and what is happening with Kane,” said the Bulgarian, who moved to Manchester for £30.75million.

“I feel that it's also a similar time in his career that I was at, you start to think if you're on the right path and you think about winning things.”

United are among a number of clubs with a long-standing interest in Kane whose season was curtailed with a torn hamstring in January.

Tottenham ’s England captain had scored 27 goals in 31 appearances for club and country before his injury. Without him, Spurs crashed out of the FA Cup, the Champions League and were struggling for form and consistency in the race for a top-four place.

Kane has four years left to run on the £200,000-a-week deal he signed in 2018 but that has not prevented some of the biggest clubs in Europe being interested.

Nor did it stop the Chingford-born marksman from admitting for the first time last week that he could leave if his club don’t start winning trophies.

Kane said: “I love Spurs, I’d always love Spurs, but it’s one of those things. I’ve always said if I don’t feel progression in the team or it’s going the right direction then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better. I want to become one of the top top players.

“It all depends what happens with the team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever, but it’s not a no either.”

Berbatov recognises the dilemma facing Kane with Spurs having made him a Premier League superstar during his two years at the club before his defection.
