Dimitar Berbatov thinks Harry Kane should leave Tottenham for Man Utd if the opportunity arises amid speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.
Kane faces an uncertain future in north London after insisting he won’t stay at Tottenham “for the sake of it”.
Spurs are apparently ‘furious’ and ‘exasperated’ with the striker, leading to suggestions that they could sanction a world-record £200m move to Man Utd.
And Berbatov – who played for both Tottenham and the Red Devils – doesn’t think Kane’s head is in “the right place” at the moment and has backed him to swap Spurs for Man Utd.
“The final step for me was joining Manchester United and I knew I would be making people disappointed – especially Tottenham fans – but I was following my own path,” Berbatov told BBC’s Football Daily podcast.
“I knew if I missed that chance another one might not come. This is how it is in football. Sometimes you need to make tough decisions.
“The same situation is happening with Harry Kane at the moment, the exact same. He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and maybe his head is not in the right place.
“My head was not in the right place. It was the same with [Christian] Eriksen. He wasn’t really there in the last couple of games. I watched the games and I saw that his head was not there.
“Kane is in the same situation. If there is any truth in the rumours, it’s in his head, 100 per cent. The lack of trophies is the main problem for players like Kane.
“He’s not getting any younger. He wants to look back and know he won trophies. When I see Spurs play United now, even if on paper Spurs have better players, they still go there with fear.”
