Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has stated that he wouldn’t have joined Manchester United despite interest from the Red Devils because he loves Tottenham Hotspur, according to Manchester Evening News.
Manchester United’s hopes of signing Harry Kane have been hit after the England striker declared his intention to lead Tottenham into their state of the art new stadium.
Kane has addressed Louis van Gaal’s pursuit of him this summer and insists he had no intention of trying to force his way out of White Hart Lane and move to Old Trafford.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal wanted the 21-year-old English international to partner captain Wayne Rooney in the attack.
The sensational striker scored 31 goals for spurs last season in all competitions and among them 21 were in the League only, second only to Premier League Golden Boot winner Sergio Aguero.
He earned a nomination for PFA Player of the Year and he was awarded PFA Young Player of the Year.
His impressive display attracted interest from Louis van Gaal’s United side, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy dismissed any possibility of selling his most prized asset.
Van Gaal’s only hope would have been if Kane had agitated for a move himself. Something the player says was never going to happen.
“I am a Tottenham boy,” said Kane. “I have grown up with the club.”
“I know the club and I love the club. We have got a great team, a young team that is only going to get better and better.”
“I am happy. I am happy to be playing.”
“That is the most important thing for me this season to be playing week in week out and getting game time,” he said. “We have a great manager and staff at Spurs and I can really see us just pushing on.”
“I am excited about the future. A new stadium as well.”
“Everything just seems to be going in the right direction so I am excited.”
