Harry Kane has not been available for election since January as he works his way back to full fitness after a hamstring injury. The Spurs striker is back on the training pitch and is on course to return to the first team squad next month in time for the North London Derby clash with Arsenal at home.
Harry Kane has four years left on his Spurs contract which will expire in 2024 and he is the third on the list of goalscorers at the club. The striker is third behind Jimmy Greaves and Bobby Smith.
Manchester United are still hoping to sign a long-term striker at the club despite the success of loan signing Odion Ighalo. Nigerian striker Ighalo signed on loan for the season from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in January and he has already scored three goals in his first two starts.
Harry Kane could be the man for the role of first choice striker at Manchester United but the Red Devils will have to first convince Daniel Levy to part with the striker.
