Harry Kane is ready to join everyone at Tottenham by pushing “in the same direction” amid rumours he could leave for Manchester United in the summer.

Spurs, who had looked in the driving seat to finish in the top four only a couple of months ago, will now miss out on Champions League football and have to settle for another trophyless season.

The lack of silverware almost drove Kane out of the club a couple of years ago with Manchester City attempting to lure the England international away from his boyhood club.

However, despite appearing to be in favour of a move away from Tottenham, Kane stayed and many see this summer as crucial to his long-term future.

With Kane turning 30 in July and only having one year left on his contract, it’s likely that he will either sign a new deal at Tottenham or leave for pastures new.

A report earlier this year insisted that Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag was now ‘sold’ on the idea of bringing Kane to Old Trafford but another outlet recently claimed that the England striker is ‘open’ to running his contract down with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy unwilling to sell to United.

But in an interview Kane claims that he believes Tottenham are not far away from success and silverware if they can bring in “the right people” in the summer.

Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League table with Ryan Mason appointed caretaker manager until the end of the season last month after Antonio Conte and then Cristian Stellini were sacked in quick succession.

Kane said: “It’s been a difficult season.

“Probably the last couple of years we haven’t been where we want to be as a club, so there’s some internal stuff we need to talk about.”

Kane added: “We need to discuss standards around the team and the training ground, which we need to get back to. We had those in place when Mauricio Pochettino was here.”

Julian Nagelsmann, Xabi Alonso and Arne Slot are among the favourites to take the permanent manager role at Tottenham and Kane has faith everyone at the club can now “push in the same direction”.

Kane, who has scored 26 Premier League goals this season, continued: “The chairman will make a decision on what he thinks is best for the club, in terms of the coach and who he wants to bring in, the players to go and who he wants to bring in.

“I always think you’re never too far away from being competitive with the right people. But also, you’re never too far away from dropping down to tenth because that is the standard.

“It’s an important moment to feel a connection again with the fans, who I know have been frustrated. We need to try to build that relationship back up and try to all push in the same direction.”
