Steve McManaman believes that Manchester City would be the top destination for Harry Kane if he wants to win trophies, although the pundit insisted that the Spurs man does not need to leave to be an ‘absolute superstar’.
Tottenham’s likely lack of Champions League football next season, coupled with City’s search for a successor to Sergio Aguero, has seen the England captain linked with a north London exit this summer.
Kane has spent his whole career at Spurs and, at 28, faces an important decision to make as to where he sees his future.

And McManaman believes that if Kane wants to win trophies, former club City is the obvious choice, but added that fans and pundits get too caught up in the need to win trophies.
‘If he wants to win trophies, of course, the team who wins the most trophies at the moment is Manchester City, so that would be an easy decision,’ McManaman told HorseRacing.net.
‘But people get carried away with all this ‘He needs to win trophies to be a great player.’ He doesn’t, he’s a great player anyway. He’s going to be one of the best.

‘Look at Alan Shearer. People talk about the lack of trophies he didn’t win but no one can tell me Alan Shearer isn’t an absolute superstar. Harry Kane will be the same if he stays at Tottenham.
‘Likewise if he wants to move and he feels as if he needs to win trophies, that’s his decision and one that he’ll live and die by.
‘He’s an incredible centre-forward and I think if you’re a club and you’re going to buy one at the moment, a Premier League super-striker, you go and buy Harry Kane in a heartbeat.’
The focus of this summer’s transfer window will be on Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, with City, Man United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid interested in the £154m star.

However, McManaman claims that buying Kane is the better option as he is the ‘finished article’.
‘You know that if he goes and plays for somebody else, he’ll still go and score 30 goals next year,’ McManaman added of Kane.
‘I think Erling Haaland is certainly one for the future because he’s only a young boy, he hasn’t played in the Premier League before, he’s still adjusting, he’s still getting better and he’s still improving. Harry Kane is the finished article.’
Last week, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho revealed that he and Kane have ‘nothing to talk about’ in relation to transfer speculation, with the 28-year-old having three years left on his current contract.
‘I’ve nothing to speak with him (about). Three years of his contract (remaining). I have nothing to speak with him.
‘Unless he wants to speak with me about it and until now he never approached me in relation to anything.’
