Harry Kane responds to Man Utd fans' 'We'll see you in June' chant
In reaction to the efforts of Manchester United fans to lure him to their team this summer, Harry Kane, the forward for Tottenham, has replied.
There is considerable speculation linking Kane, who is 29 years old, with a transfer to Old Trafford, as his future with Spurs is highly uncertain due to the wider instability surrounding the club.
With only one year remaining on his Tottenham contract after the season concludes, the English player may consider leaving, especially since the team has once again failed to win any trophies.
Daniel Levy, the chairman of Spurs, is in a difficult situation as he must decide whether to sell Kane during this summer or take the chance of letting him enter the final year of his contract.
Manchester United is willing to spend as much as £100m in order to acquire the services of the striker. However, Levy, who is in charge of Tottenham, is hesitant to sell to another team in the Premier League and would rather have Kane move overseas if he decides to leave the club.
On Thursday evening at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Kane encountered United in the Premier League and Erik ten Hag's team was unable to secure a win, settling for a 2-2 draw.
Ryan Mason's first game as caretaker manager saw Spurs recover from a two-goal deficit to earn a point. Mason took over from Cristian Stellini, who was appointed as the interim manager after Antonio Conte left the team last month.
During the game, United's travelling supporters did their best to convince Kane to move to Old Trafford, chanting: "We'll see you in June, Harry Kane, we'll see you in June."

Kane smiled when he was asked about those chants after the match, according to The Mirror.
But he also made sure to reaffirm his commitment to Tottenham - at least until the end of the season.
"I heard what they were saying but I'm just focussed on this team and trying to finish strongly," he said.
While Tottenham have struggled for consistency this season, Kane has enjoyed another excellent individual campaign.
The England striker has scored 24 goals in 33 Premier League games and is now third on the all-time top scorers list – one behind second-place Wayne Rooney and 53 behind record holder Alan Shearer.
Kane looks destined to surpass Shearer if he remains in the Premier League for the rest of his career.
But a move abroad is a possibility, with Levy more likely to sell to a foreign club.
Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have both been linked with Kane, but United remain strong favourites to sign the striker – should he leave Tottenham this summer.
