Man United transfers: Teddy Sheringham admits Harry Kane fear
Spurs legend Teddy Sheringham says Tottenham striker Harry Kane won't be a one-season wonder
Teddy Sheringham admits there is always going to be a fear that Tottenham Hotspur could lose Harry Kane to Manchester United.
The Spurs talisman has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window following the departure of Robin van Persie to Turkish side Fenerbahce.
There are a lot of people saying that he could be a one-season wonder. I don’t think that
The Red Devils are reported to be weighing up a £45m offer for the England international despite the 22-year-old pledging his immediate future to the White Hart Lane outfit earlier this summer.
And Sheringham, who made the switch from Spurs to United in 1998 and went on to win the Treble in his first season under Sir Alex Ferguson, believes Kane is right to stay at the north London club and develop as a player.
“There is always that fear [Kane could go to Man United],” Sheringham said, speaking at the launch of The Sun Dream Team in London on Tuesday night.
“But he is staying, and he says he is happy to play at Tottenham and that is his club at the moment and what he wants to do.
“He is right to do that because he is still a young lad.”
Kane scooped the PFA young player of the year award last season after he scored 21 goals in 35 Premier League games.
And Sheringham is confident the Spurs striker can hit similar heights this season, although the newly-appointed Stevenage manager reckons Kane could do with a new strike partner.
“There are a lot of people saying that he could be a one-season wonder. I don’t think that,” Sheringham added.
“I love his enthusiasm for the game. He has a big desire when he goes out on the football pitch.
“The fact that they even named him the captain last year shows that they hold him in a very high regard at Tottenham.
“He might need a little help this year. If they can sign one or two players before the season starts this week just to give him a little bit of help because it is a big burden for the youngster to carry albeit after last year.”
