Former England international John Barnes believes that Harry Kane should snub interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid in order to stay loyal to Tottenham Hotspur.

Former England international John Barnes has urged Harry Kane to turn down interest from Manchester United and stay loyal to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham's plight this season has raised speculation that Kane could look to leave the club at the end of the campaign in order to challenge for more silverware.

United and Real Madrid are understood to view the 26-year-old as a dream signing, while Manchester City and Juventus have also been credited with an interest, but Barnes has warned the striker against chasing trophies.

"Harry Kane should not look to leave Tottenham if he loves Spurs and is a fan of the club," Barnes told

"If all players wanted to leave their club to win a trophy, all the players would go to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City or a Liverpool, and you'll never have anyone playing anywhere else. You know you're a Tottenham fan, you want to play for Tottenham so stay at Tottenham to try and help them win.

"Very similar with Bryan Robson at Manchester United. United and England captain at the time, whilst United were not doing well, he could have easily left. He thought I'm going to stay at Manchester United and help them to win."

Kane has scored 181 goals in 278 appearances for Tottenham, but is yet to get his hands on a major trophy.
