  • Berbatov is convinced Spurs star Kane unsettled by Man Utd

    Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov is convinced Harry Kane is open to moving to Manchester United.

    Berbatov thinks Kane is considering a move to Manchester United due to a lack of trophies at Tottenham.

    “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 said on the 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.”
