Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes Harry Kane needs to move on from Tottenham Hotspur this summer amid Manchester United interest.
Kane became England’s all-time leading goalscorer on Thursday evening, as he bagged England’s second in their 2-1 victory over Italy to get the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 qualifying campaign off to a winning start in Naples.
The striker, 29, has two years left on his Tottenham contract, but it is believed that Spurs will consider a £100 million bid for him this summer.
Manchester United will be in the market for a new striker at the end of the season and Kane is high on their wishlist alongside Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.
But after failing to force a move to Manchester City in the summer of 2021, Gerrard has urged Kane to a move away from North London as time runs out for him to start winning trophies.
“It’s an incredible penalty, it’s precise, takes the side-netting off. He’s one of the best penalty-takers in the world, that’s why it was such a surprise what happened to him in the World Cup,” said Gerrard, who was working as a pundit for Channel 4.
“You’re talking about greatness, you’re talking about one of the best No.9s in the world right now and that’s the reason why every transfer window he’s ahead in terms of all the talks because, you know, maybe it is time, maybe it is time for him to move on.”
That’s a fascinating take from Gerrard as during his career, the midfielder refused to leave Liverpool in search of titles.
The former England captain is well-known for never winning a Premier League championship.
Kane came close to winning a trophy while at Tottenham.
He was part of the teams that reached the final of the League Cup in 2015 and 2021, as well as the Champions League in 2019.
Kane also contributed to Spurs finishing second in the Premier League in 2016/17.
