Former Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas said on the Gillette Soccer Special show on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday afternoon (December 28) that he does not think that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will join Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
In February 2015, The Daily Mail reported that Real Madrid scouted the England international striker as many as three times.
Nicholas, who played for Celtic and Aberdeen as well as for Arsenal, believes that Kane will not join United.
However, the former Scotland international forward believes that 10-time European champions Madrid could make a move for the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window.
“With the current situation and the current manager, no, I don’t,” said Nicholas on the Gillette Soccer Special show on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday afternoon (December 28) when asked whether Kane could join United at the end of the season.
“I wouldn’t see the reason for Harry Kane to join something that is unclear. Other clubs would be interested, I wouldn’t be surprised.
“I wouldn’t be surprised come the summer depends what happens at Madrid, whether Real Madrid would be interested in his type of situation because his work rate, his method and this attitude he has.”
Kane enjoyed a breakthrough season at Tottenham in 2014-15 and has carried that form into this campaign.
The 22-year-old scored 21 goals and created 27 chances in 34 Premier League appearances for Spurs last season.
So far this term, the England international has scored 11 goals and created 21 chances in 19 league matches.
