In Focus: Kane needs to prioritise trophies if Manchester United come calling

Manchester United are planning a sensational £170m swoop for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, according to the Sun.

What’s the story?

It is not the first time that the Red Devils have been linked with Kane, but the price tag has certainly risen.

The England international has been making headlines of late by scoring 11 goals in nine games in all competitions for Spurs this season.

It is inevitable that a player of Kane’s calibre will attract rival clubs, and the Sun seem to think that United are prepared to pay a mammoth £170m, which is £130m more than reports two years ago claimed that the Red Devils wanted to bid.

The newspaper states that Jose Mourinho is keen to pair the 24-year-old up with Romelu Lukaku, who has netted 10 goals in all competitions this season.

As expected, Tottenham have no intention of selling Kane and the club are reportedly planning to offer the striker a new contract next summer.

Should Kane think about it?

The hitman is in a difficult yet positive position given that some of the best clubs in the world seem to be after him.

Spurs are in the midst of an exciting run given that they finished third and second in the last two Premier League campaigns.

Not to mention, they have a brand new state-of-the-art stadium due to open for the beginning of the 2018-19 season.

The North London outfit will certainly want Kane to stay as the face of the club, but even though the future looks bright, the club are sparse when it comes to silverware in recent years.

The striker is in the form of his life, and he will get to a point where he needs to be selfish and ask himself where he is more likely to win trophies.

There is no denying that a partnership of Kane and Lukaku would be deadly, but the Englishman would risk ruining his relationship with Tottenham fans if he made the move.
