Former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott backs Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur

Speaking to LiveScore (h/t Football.London), former Premier League defender Joleon Lescott has tipped Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur. The 39-year-old believes that Manchester United would try to lure him away in the summer.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the long-term future of Kane for some time now. The 28-year-old striker was being linked to a move with Manchester City in the last summer transfer window.

The English striker is now also being linked to their city rivals Manchester United. Whilst Kane had a tough start to the campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo, he seems to be rediscovering his fine form at the moment.

In conversation with LiveScore (h/t Football.London), Lescott feels that the English international could be tempted to make the move away from Hotspur Way. The former English defender also believes that Man Utd would try their best to secure his services.

“Manchester United are one club I could see trying to lure him [Harry Kane] away in summer — and I think he’d consider that very strongly. For all their faults, United are closer to winning trophies than Spurs right now. Not the Premier League, but knockout competitions. You could see them winning an FA Cup or Carabao Cup.

It would make sense for United to try for him. And if circumstances are right, it’s one I could see happening.”

Will Kane stay at Hotspur Way?

The 28-year-old seems to have rekindled his rich vein of form ever since the arrival of Antonio Conte. The English striker has now notched up 22 goals and provided four assists in 40 matches across all competitions for the Lilywhites this campaign.

The England captain has created a fearsome duo alongside Son Heung-Min and they are pivotal in the way that the North Londoners function on the pitch. The 28-year-old striker’s buildup play and passing abilities add a more well-rounded touch to his already clinical finishing.

The Lilywhites have now struggled to compete at the highest level for the last couple of seasons. Their last major trophy was way back in 2008 when they lifted the Carabao Cup. 14-years is a long wait for silverware, especially for a top club like Spurs.

At 28, one could argue that Kane is now entering the peak years of his footballing prowess. While he has broken individual records left right and center, the English striker still has very little to show in terms of accolades with club and country.

Add to that, the fact that Spurs have struggled to cement their place in European football in recent times is a stark reminder that there is still a lot of work to be done at Hotspur Way. Keeping all this in mind one couldn’t fault the player should he seek greener pastures elsewhere.

That being said, it would definitely be a big loss for the Spurs faithful should Kane depart anytime soon. The fans will be hoping that the English international can see out his future at the North London club but only time can tell whether or not that becomes a reality.
