Harry Kane will return to Tottenham Hotspur this week with yet another personal achievement in his trophy cabinet.

The Spurs striker became England’s record male goal scorer when he netted during The Three Lions’ 2-1 win over Italy in Naples last week, surpassing Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals.

He then added to his tally on Sunday, opening the scoring as Gareth Southgate’s side cruised to a 2-0 victory over Ukraine.

When he returns to north London, Kane won’t be greeted by Antonio Conte, who left Tottenham by mutual consent on Sunday.

The club are yet to appoint a permanent successor to Conte, but it has been rumoured that they could move for ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino.

In the meantime, Kane himself is being linked with a move away from Spurs.

As per The Daily Star, Manchester United are preparing an £80 million bid for the Englishman.

United CEO Richard Arnold has reportedly sanctioned the move as The Red Devils look for a striker ahead of next season, although they will undoubtedly face stiff competition for the player.

The report claims that Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea are set to rival United for Kane’s signature, while current club Spurs are also set to battle to keep hold of their talisman.

United boss Erik ten Hag is reportedly of the view that signing a player like Kane would turn United into title contenders next term.

Kane, 29, made his debut for Spurs back in 2011 and has since established himself as one of the best strikers in world football.

In total, Kane has scored 271 times in 425 games for Spurs across all competitions, becoming the club’s record scorer earlier this season.

The England international will also have one eye on Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals and a move to United would allow Kane to build on his current tally of 204.

Spurs will hope that the appointment of their next permanent manager will persuade Kane to stay put in north London, but the report claims that the player is ready to push for a move away and currently favours a move to Old Trafford.
