Despite the fierceness of football rivalry, fans from opposing clubs can only appreciate the talent that is Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.
The England international had a stellar 2017 by ending the calendar year as Europe’s leading scorer.
For club and country, the 24-year-old netted 56 goals, which was more than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Real Madrid hero Cristiano Ronaldo – the pair have 10 Ballon d’Or trophies between them.
Kane has carried his form into 2018 as he has already smashed a Tottenham record, despite the year being just 14 days old.
The striker broke Teddy Sheringham’s Premier League record of 97 goals by scoring twice in Spurs’ 4-0 rout over Everton at Wembley on Saturday night.
The forward’s scintillating form has resulted in the widespread media linking him with moves to other clubs, including Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho’s side currently have Romelu Lukaku as their first-choice striker, but the Belgian has been struggling for consistency of late.
After witnessing Kane’s performance for Tottenham on Saturday, some United fans called for the club to make a move.
