Former Manchester United forward Michael Owen has warned Harry Kane that it is ‘now or never’ to leave Tottenham.
Man United are huge admirers of Kane and were linked to lure the forward to Old Trafford last season but for several reasons, United decided to sign former PSG forward, Edinson Cavani.
Many reports have claimed that Manchester United are reportedly planning on renewing their hunt for the England international after Tottenham failed to make the top-four finish and went trophyless this season.
It is reported that Harry Kane wants to leave Tottenham this season but his preference is to remain in the Premier League, with Man United, Manchester City and Chelsea all interested in his signature.
Spurs are unwilling to sell to a direct Premier League rival but the 27-year-old has forced the club’s hand and hopes that his close relationship with chairman Daniel Levy will persuade the club to listen to offers.
Kane has risked upsetting fans with his request but Michael Owen believes he’s done the brave thing and has warned the striker that this is his last chance to upgrade to another club, given his age and value.
‘You can’t blame @HKane wanting a new challenge. It’s a short career and @SpursOfficial are miles off winning things at present. It was now or never,’ said Owen on Twitter.
‘He’s [Harry Kane] shown great loyalty but it would be a huge shame if he finishes his career with no medals to show for it.’

Chelsea are reported to be willing to meet Tottenham’s £150m asking price for Harry Kane but it is anticipated that Spurs would go against selling to their London rivals.
Kane, in any case, is said to prefer a move north to one of the Manchester clubs and City are likely to have the advantage if they are willing to pay Spurs’ valuation.
