Ex-Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Southampton midfielder David Prutton believes Harry Kane would fit right in at Manchester United.

He has been Tottenham's saviour countless times. He has fired England past opponents regularly, winning the World Cup golden boot in 2018. 

However for all his talents and incredible goalscoring exploits, Harry Kane is yet to lift silverware. A player of his quality should look back at a trophy laden career once he hangs up his boots. 

But at Tottenham, many question whether is he going to get those memories and medals?

Coming close in the Champions League and having runs to the FA Cup semi-finals under Mauricio Pochettino, many believe Tottenham's inability to get over that final hurdle could see the Englishman finally leave the club in a bid to get his hands on a trophy. 

Kane's passion for Spurs is undeniable. If he was to leave the club he would depart as a legend. 

Outlets have reported the two Manchester clubs are supposedly interested in signing the 26-year-old and former footballer, David Prutton, believes the striker could fit in nicely at Manchester United.

Speaking on Posh Boys on Drive on Love Sport Radio, Prutton said: "Obviously, the current incarnation of Manchester City could do very well in the Champions League this season, but then be nowhere near it for the next two after that. 

"Man United seem to be re-surging somewhat, but I still think they are a long way off the best- he could be the man to spearhead that. If this is Harry in this position and he's got a toss up between these two, I think also what would go hand in hand with that is that Man United would pay bigger wages.

"I'm not saying that for one second that that would be the major motivating factor. But this next contract for Harry Kane, if he's not a very wealthy man already, should in theory set him and the rest of his family up for a very, very long time. So that's something that's got to come into it.

"I think it feels just as Poch came to a natural end to that cycle, perhaps it could be a possibility of that [the group disbanding].

"And it's difficult isn't it, a lad from down here whether he can cut it up north and I'm not saying it's not a million miles away, but it is a difference.

"To me, he strikes me as the type of fella that fits in with those grand old traditions of Manchester United and would do well leading the line there."
