Former Tottenham playmaker Rafael van der Vaart has advised Harry Kane to reject a move to Real Madrid in favour of joining Manchester United.
Kane was taking his first steps into the first team when Van der Vaart was in the midst of a two-year spell in north London.
The forward had several loan spells in League One and the Championship, with Van der Vaart admitting he was shocked at the 27-year-old’s progress after he left for Hamburg in 2012.
Kane has gone on to establish himself as one of the deadliest strikers in the world, hitting 215 goals in 327 games for Spurs.
Despite Kane’s sensational output, the England skipper is yet to win silverware in his career and he’s believed to be questioning his future at the club.

Real Madrid and Manchester City are both interested in signing Kane but Van der Vaart believes the forward should join Manchester United instead.
‘He (Keane) is right, although, of course, he is the man at Tottenham,’ said Van der Vaart
‘It may sound crazy, but you would almost say go to Manchester United or something, stay in England. Usually, it’s not such a success when an English player goes to Madrid.’
Spurs value Kane at around £150m and the striker has three years to run on his contract at the club, putting chairman Daniel Levy in a strong position.
The club are desperate to keep hold of the Three Lions skipper and would not consider selling to a direct rival, preferring instead to sell abroad if Kane forced their hand.
