Harry Kane has addressed the speculation about his Tottenham Hotspur future amid an update on the interest from Manchester United.

Kane, 29, scored his 30th Premier League goal of the season on the final day against relegated Leeds United.

It is the second time that the Spurs forward has reached the landmark, first doing so in 2017/18. But – yet again – it all came to nothing.

Kane has gone another year without silverware, which has led to increased speculation about his future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Various reports have placed United as a potential destination; with Erik ten Hag supposedly a big fan of the England international.

However, when pressed on the reports about a potential transfer, Kane downplayed speculation and stressed that he is aiming to help ‘improve’ Spurs going forward after time away from the pitch.

It has been a disappointing season,” Kane told BT Sport. “We can’t let this win dust over that. A lot to work on. We have had to show fight in some moments. A club this size should not be finishing eighth and we need to go away, enjoy a break and look how we can improve.

“It is part and parcel of being a footballer [speculation about leaving] especially when you are at the top of your game. I have focused on this season and helping the team as much as possible. I am just looking forward to a nice break and some games with England.”

Recent reports have also mentioned the difficulties of a potential deal for Kane in the summer due to the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

Levy is known for his hardness in negotiations — a source who has worked with the chairman half-jokingly said United would have to “kill him” to sign Kane, according to the Manchester Evening News.

And the latest developments in the transfer saga seem like this will prove to be the case. Spurs reporter Alasdair Gold says the current feeling within the club is that Kane is less likely to leave this summer and instead will give at least one season to Tottenham.

It was added that there is little confidence within United that they can convince Daniel Levy to part with the forward.

The Reds have been linked to a number of different no.9s for the upcoming summer, including Rasmus Hojlund and Victor Osimhen.
