Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov expects Harry Kane to join Manchester United if he is to fulfil his ambition of winning trophies.

Dimitar Berbatov has suggested that he can see Harry Kane leaving Tottenham Hotspur to join Manchester United when the transfer window opens.

Kane cast doubt over his Tottenham future in a Q&A session earlier this week when refusing to rule out a move away in order to win trophies.

Tottenham are reluctant to offload their star striker and are rumoured to be holding out for a £200m offer from United, who are in the market for another attacker.

Berbatov made the same switch in 2008, winning four major honours during his four years at Old Trafford, and can "see a lot of similarities" when it comes to questions over Kane's next career step.

"This week I saw some comments from Harry Kane - he loves Spurs but if they aren't going to be producing trophies then maybe it is time to leave," he told Betfair. "He knows all that, of course he's thinking about it, now even more than before.

"I think once it returns, maybe football will change in the amount of money that is spent, in the way players are bought and sold. If you are Kane in this situation and Daniel Levy is your chairman, he isn't going to sell you cheap, he is going to ask for what is fair, which in the case of Kane is a lot of money.

"I see a lot of similarities in the situation I went through and what is happening with Kane at the minute. There is a strong connection between Spurs and Manchester United - Teddy Sheringham was at Tottenham then went to Old Trafford, I was a Spurs striker and went to United and now Kane, who's also a striker, is being linked with a move there.

"I feel that it's also a similar time in his career that I was at, you start to think if you're on the right path and you think about winning things. When I left Spurs, even though I had won a trophy with the club it was a still difficult decision to make."

Kane's current contract with Spurs is set to expire in 2024.
