England captain Harry Kane has changed tact this time around with speculation over his Tottenham future at the forefront, once again, but the free-scoring Londoner had already told Manchester United and Erik ten Hag what they want to hear.
City were priced out of that pursuit and waited 12 months before signing Erling Haaland instead, leaving Kane limited on options should he swap Tottenham for another Premier League club.
After scoring his 266th goal for Tottenham to move level with record holder Jimmy Greaves on Monday night, the England forward was pressed on his future.
As his wait for silverware goes on, Kane outlined what he wants in his career on that Overlap episode.
In doing so, meanwhile, he gave United and Ten Hag another reason to pursue him this summer – declaring he can score even more goals as the records start to tumble.
He will surpass the late, great Greaves in the coming days, while Kane also finds himself level with United hero, Wayne Rooney, when it comes to the all-time charts for England on 53 goals.
He continues to produce numbers every single year and, yet, team trophies have eluded him throughout that time.
