    Daniel McNamara in TEARS after Wolves Women thrash high-flying Watford in FA Cup third round

    DANIEL MCNAMARA was left in TEARS after his Wolves side knocked high-flying Watford out of the FA Cup third round.The fourth-tier West Midlands club, made up of teachers, nurses and office workers have truly felt the devastating impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    They were staring promotion in the face before their season was axed in January for a second year on the bounce due to the coronavirus crisis. 
    Wolves haven’t been able to train for THREE MONTHS let alone play a competitive fixture.
    But their season isn’t done yet, thanks to goals from Jade Cross, Kelly Darby, Anna Morphet and Jamila Palmer yesterday afternoon.
    Boss McNamara, who was holding back tears, said: “The group deserve it. 
    “We’ve come down here to Watford. No dressing room, warming up on a horrible pitch over there. I thought we had been disrespected if I’m honest.
    “Even their (Watford’s) warm up looked laboured, it looked like they were playing an easy side – there’s Wolves Women for you. 
    “Watford will be in the Championship in the next couple of years and we’ve beaten them. I’m speechless.

    “I don’t want to be disrespectful to Watford because they’re an unbelievable outfit with fantastic players but that’s what heart, determination and a unified group gets you.”
    Third-tier Watford, made up of ex-Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal aces,  were also gearing up for promotion and a return to the Championship before their campaign bit the dust.
    But the best they’ll get now is enjoying the rest of the FA Cup at home in front of the TV, after every league below the Women’s Championship was shut down.
    It was Cross who gave the visitors the lead after pouncing on the ball at goalkeeper Chrissie Wiggins’ feet, to unleash a fierce, low drive into the corner on nine minutes. 
    But the hosts hit back strongly, and Katie O’Leary sent a dipping and curling strike beyond Bec Thomas for the equaliser on the stroke of half time.
    After the break Darby rose highest to tuck home an inch-perfect free kick to make it 2-1. 
    And drama erupted when the referee pointed to the spot after Tammy George was mowed down in the area.
    Morphett cooly converted before Palmer wrapped things up by pulling the trigger from distance to send Wolves into a fourth round tie with Blackburn Rovers next week.

    ARTETA REACTS
    The Arsenal manager was delighted with his side tonight.
    He is also optimistic on the Bukayo Saka injury but is not sure what it was.
    I am really happy with the performance and the result and we scored really nice goals. We played at a high level I think. I had the feeling the boys were at it and understood how we had to attack. We had good distances to play with each other we knew how to adapt. Xhaka could play at left-back more as he has a lot of quality.I hope it isn’t bad (Saka injury) as the last thing we need is another forward player being out. He felt discomfort in his thigh but we don’t know yet what it is.Lacazette is playing really well at the moment and tonight was a great performance from him and I’m so pleased he got his goals. It’s the perfect preparation for Thursday, especially with the clean sheet.Mikel Arteta
    ASSIST FROM PARTEY
    It was a great assist from him tonight, should Gunners fans expect more of this from the midfielder?
    Thomas Partey has provided two Premier League assists for Arsenal:🅰️ Aubameyang vs. Newcastle🅰️ Lacazette vs. Sheffield UtdTurns his man, fires it forward, lets the striker do the rest. 🎯 pic.twitter.com/jyeF8xKr2Z— Squawka Football (@Squawka) April 11, 2021

    LACA REVIEW
    The Gunners skipper gives his reaction after his side’s 3-0 win.
    It was important to win after the last few results when we were sad about the result. It’s always good for a striker to score. I had a bad miss on Thursday so it was good to get the confidence back. We want to play and score and it was good tonight. We know we have the quality and when everyone is focussed we can do well.Alexandre LacazetteBT Sport

    HOW IT STANDS
    Another busy weekend of Premier League football comes to an end.
    Arsenal move into the top half with that win and now sit just four points behind rivals Spurs who are 7th.
    Sheffield United remain on 14 points after 31 games played.

    FT: SHEFFIELD UTD 0-3 ARSENAL
    An Alexandre Lacazette double and a Gabriel Martinelli goal in between is enough for the Gunners.
    Their first clean sheet in 15 games too!
    Just the warm-up they need ahead of a big one on Thursday night.
    The only concern is that injury to Saka who is able to walk onto the park to shake hands at the end.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    All over at Bramall Lane: SHEFFIELD UTD 0-3 ARSENAL

    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-3 ARSENAL
    89′ Almost number four as Pepe rushes through on the right and bears down on goal.

    The matchwinner is given a rest by boss Mikel Arteta.

    OFF – Lacazette
    ON – Nketiah

    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-3 ARSENAL
    88′ Chance for Mousset after a cut-back down the left.
    He has a lot of time but finishes like a player with no confidence. Though if he is fifth choice striker behind the guys in front then no wonder!
    He skews it well, well wide with a strike from inside the box.
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-3 ARSENAL
    85′ That seals it!
    Partey with a fabulous ball from halfway in behind Ampadu who was caught out by Lacazette’s dummy run.
    The Frenchman is clean through and gives Ramsdale the eyes from the edge of the area before closing his foot on it and whipping it into the bottom corner.
    Clinical from the skipper of the evening!

    Sheff Utd change:

    OFF – McBurnie
    ON – Mousset

    Arsenal change:

    OFF – Martinelli
    ON – Elneny

    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    80′ McBurnie re-enters the game.
    Pepe slides a clever through ball for Martinelli in behind but there’s just too much on it and a sliding Brazillian can’t slide in to make contact.
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    79′ Osborn with a clever flick over the top for Baldock who does well to lift it into the box towards McBurnie.
    He got a kick in the build-up and couldn’t move too quickly to get on the end of that and the move breaks down.
    Mari is shown a YELLOW CARD for the earlier tackle on McBurnie who is down and requires treatment.
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    78′ McBurnie does well in midfield to skip by a couple of challenges in the middle of the park and squeeze the ball to Brewster.
    Brewster – without a goal for Sheffield United this season – opts to have a go from 30 yards which hits Holding.
    Martinelli taps home for Arsenal
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    75′ Good play from Lacazette again as he fools Ampadu and is brought down on the edge of the box.
    It is half a yard outside the area on the left of the area – nearly a penalty.
    VAR with a quick check and it’s a relief they get one right.
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    74′ Lacazette almost has a tap-in but for good defeding from Egan.
    A ball in from deep almost finds the Frenchman himself on the penalty spot.
    SHEFFIELD UTD 0-2 ARSENAL
    72′ A shocking square-ball in his own defensive third by Lundstram and he finds Pepe.
    He drives towards the box and rolls a shot towards the far corner which Ramsdale parries out so poorly.
    Martinelli follows it in and has a simple task to tap it into the empty net from three yards!

    Sheffield United vs Arsenal Live Blog
    Have a good one!
    CAVA BIEN
    JUSTICE for Edinson Cavani, revenge for Manchester United and a near-fatal blow to Tottenham’s hope of Champions League qualification. 
    United had been seething with rage ever since a Cavani ‘opener’ had been ruled out because of a supposed foul by Scott McTominay on a theatrical Son Heung-Min.
    Their rage was only worsened when Son stroked Spurs into the lead soon after – but a second-half fight-back earned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men a fourth straight Premier League win.
    Fred equalised and Cavani netted with a diving header from a gorgeous Mason Greenwood cross as United avenged their 6-1 defeat by Spurs back in October.  
    Read More: Tottenham 1 Man Utd 3 Match Report
    ED IT IN
    Five of Edinson Cavani’s seven Premier League goals for Manchester United have been headed; indeed, only Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored more headed goals in this season’s competition (six) than the Uruguayan.
    McTOMINAY SPEAKS
    Scott McTominay told Sky Sports: “It’s a brilliant win.
    “We were frustrated at half-time but the message was clear from the manager: keep calm. That’s what he kept saying to the players, that there’s no need to panic.
    “We’ve been here before, we know we have good characters in the team and good players who want to take the ball against a really difficult team. 
    “We have to start getting better in the first 30 minutes of games. By our standards that wasn’t good enough, but there were nothing but positives in the first half.
    “The referees have to make decisions – personally I’m not a fan of VAR, but it’s part and parcel of the games.
    “It was obviously a goal, the referee made a mistake, but it happens: everyone makes mistakes in life.”

    FULL-TIME STATS
    Spurs drop more points from a winning position!

    MICAH’s THOUGHTS
    Former Man City and Aston Villa defender Micah Richards shares his thoughts on Cavani’s goal being disallowed.

    FT: TOTTENHAM 1-3 MAN UTD
    Fred got Man Utd back on level terms, tapping home the rebound from Cavani’s saved effort.

    TOTTENHAM 1-2 MAN UTD

    TOTTENHAM 1-2 MAN UTD
    83. OFF THE POST!
    A Tottenham corner is flicked on towards the far post – Cavani gets up well and flicks the ball onto the post!
    So close to an equaliser – Kane and Sissoko were lurking at the back post and in some respects, Cavani has saved a certain goal.

    Wembley is an option but the stumbling block remains enabling a full stadium crowd to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions as Hearn confirmed to Sky Sports on Saturday.
    He said: “We are very close. Tomorrow [Sunday] both guys will be presented with the options for a fight in the summer.
    “Joshua doesn’t talk much about fights – but he talks when it’s close. You can feel the excitement building.
    “We are in a great place with several offers on the table. I’m quietly confident. It was nice to see Fury post with enthusiasm because he feels that we are close.
    “The teams will get together. I will try to see Bob Arum on Tuesday. We’re nearly there. We have worked really hard and we don’t want to give in.

    “It [Wembley] will be presented. Financially, it’s not at the races.
    “The question is: can we get 100,000 fans on July 24, the potential date in London? The answer is ‘we hope so’. It is difficult to make a decision on that basis.
    “This is why it’s taking longer than expected. It’s the logistics, testing policies, crowds.
    “But now is the time to make this fight. Now. The summer. We may not get this opportunity again.
    “Both guys accept that and are ready for the challenge.”
    Saudi Arabia is the frontrunner to stage the first bout of the two-fight deal.

    Pogba future EXCLUSIVE, Kane ‘could cost Man Utd over £120m’, Johnstone return, Haaland transfer LATEST

    MANCHESTER UNITED players would be ‘devastated’ if Paul Pogba left Old Trafford this summer, SunSport has exclusively revealed. Meanwhile we’ve the latest on Sam Johnstone’s potential return from his loan at West Brom, as well as gossip on Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.

    Stay up to date with our blog, below, for all the latest from Old Trafford…
    HAALAND BOOST
    Borussia Dortmund may have to sell one or two stars in the summer transfer window.
    That is according to Marca, who claim that Dortmund may have to cash in on players like Erling Haaland or Jadon Sancho in order to cover a net loss of roughly €80-90million (£69-78m).
    The club’s sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed those numbers, which come as a result of a financial impact that occurred from the fans not attending the Signal Iduna Park during the coronavirus pandemic.
    Zorc said during a press conference: “If we have to play the rest of the season without fans, as seems to be the case, we will have losses of between €80 and 90 million, based on that we will have to act.”
    Haaland can be signed for only £75m next season due to a condition in his contract and that means Dortmund may have to sell him in the summer in order to avoid missing out on some major sums.
    The star striker has been linked with a move to Manchester United, who have been embroiled into an intense bidding war with other Premier League rivals as well as clubs from Spain and France
    REAL CHELSEA STRATEGY
    Real Madrid have been operating a crafty plan to sign Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe, who has previously linked with Manchester United.
    In fact, Real have been implementing the same strategy they used to sign Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
    That is according to Football Espana, who claim that Los Blancos have been working on dissuading Mbappe from signing a new contract with PSG.
    That would allow them to either pressure the reigning Ligue 1 champions to sell in the summer with a significant price reduction or wait until next year when the star striker’s contract expires

    TOTTENHAM VS MAN UTD XI
    Tottenham and Manchester United are set to clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
    Spurs manager Jose Mourinho starts with Lloris, Aurier, Dier, Rodon, Reguilon, Lo Celso, Ndombele, Hojbjerg, Moura, Son and Kane.
    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has picked Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford and Cavani.
    David de Gea sits on the bench
    HOPES MARRED
    Leicester have overtaken Tottenham and Manchester United in the battle to sign Lille star Boubakary Soumare.
    Soumare is rated at £30million and his displays have been so impressive at Ligue 1 that he has been described as the next Paul Pogba.
    According to the Daily Star, United and Spurs have been keeping tabs on the star midfielder but the Foxes feel more confident in landing him.
    So much so, that Brendan Rodgers appears to be in pole position to sign the France under-21 international
    KANE WARNING
    Ex-Tottenham gaffer Harry Redknapp has warned Spurs superstar Harry Kane that the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side.
    Reports suggest that Kane will push for a departure in the summer if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League.
    The England captain has been linked with a move to Manchester United but Redknapp is adamant that there’s really only one club in the Premier League that can guarantee him titles and Champions League football and that is Manchester City.
    He told talkSPORT: “A year ago I said he’d never leave Tottenham.
    “His life is great, all the money he ever needs, he’s a family man and all of his family are settled, it’s a big club, fantastic training ground, fantastic stadium and with a team that I thought would be challenging this year.
    “You’d like to think he’d stay and take the club forward. Without him, it would be very difficult for Tottenham to look to be at a top club.
    “Where do you go? He wants Champions League football. Unless you go to Man City, you’re not guaranteed it beyond next season… that top four is chopping and changing”
    MAJOR KANE PREDICTION
    Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Harry Kane won’t leave Spurs at the end of the season.
    Redknapp insists that reported Manchester United target Kane won’t go anywhere unless chairman Daniel Levy’s financial demands are met.
    Reports suggest that the star striker will push for an exit if the north Londoners fail to qualify for the Champions League but Levy appears to have placed a staggering £120million asking price on him.
    Redknapp told talkSPORT: “I think he will [stay], unless he goes to Brentford! No, but seriously I think he’ll stay.
    “He ain’t going to go unless Daniel does a deal that he wants. Make no mistake, Daniel drives the hardest bargain in the world.
    “Unless he gets the deal he wants and it suits Tottenham then he won’t go. He’s going to demand the king’s ransom for him. If he doesn’t get the money to rebuild the team then Harry won’t be going anywhere”
    STAR SWAP
    Paris Saint-Germain may try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo if Kylian Mbappe joins Real Madrid in the summer.
    That is according to Tuttosport, who claim that PSG will need someone to replace Mbappe if Real manage to land the star striker at the end of the season.
    That is why the reigning Ligue 1 champions will make a move for Juventus star Ronaldo.
    Juve have claimed they don’t want to sell the Portugal international but if it comes down to that then they may ask for Mauro Icardi to go the other way
    GETTY IMAGES
    HAALAND RECORD
    Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has set a new speed record in the Bundesliga.
    That makes Haaland the fastest player in the competition as he overtook Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.
    The star striker was clocked at 22.39 mph (36.04 km/h) during Dortmund’s 3-2 win over Stuttgart on Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
    The Norway international has been linked to a mega-money move in the summer with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea all interested
    SOLSKJAER PRAISE
    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Tottenham’s star attackers Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.
    Solskjaer described Kane, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford recently, as a revelation and insists his team will have to defend well against him.
    The United boss said: “They’re a team full of quality players from the keeper to wide left.
    “But of course Son and Kane have been a revelation this season and they caused us loads of problems in the first game [earlier in the season] as well and we know we have to defend well against them”
    KANE THEY SIGN HARRY?
    Manchester United have been long-term admirers of Tottenham star striker Harry Kane, according to ongoing reports.
    However, signing Kane will be no easy feat for any Premier League team as Spurs are not willing to let their star striker join a domestic rival.
    Plus, the England captain is rated at about £120million, which poses as a sky-high fee following the coronavirus pandemic’s financial impact on the sport.
    The 27-year-old has stated that he will clarify his future after the summer’s delayed Euro 2020.
    But recent reports suggest that he will push for an exit if Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League
    HAALAND INSANE TERMS
    Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola will try to make his client the first ever player to be paid a staggering £1million per week!
    That is according to the Daily Mirror, who claim Raiola sees Haaland as a once-in-a-generation type of player that deserves to receive record-breaking sums.
    That wouldn’t sit well with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool following the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
    But there’s a sense that Abu Dhabi-owned Manchester City and Qatari-backed Paris Saint-Germain could all rise up to that kind of challenge
    GETTY IMAGES
    TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED PREVIEW
    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to have Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw fit for today’s clash against Tottenham in north London.
    Rashford was taken off from Thursday’s Europa League clash at Granada after his goal due to an ongoing ankle issue.
    Shaw, on the other hand, came off due to an unspecified problem but there is yet no update ahead of the upcoming match with Spurs.
    Solskjaer will be without Anthony Martial and Phil Jones, who are nursing a knee injury, as well as Eric Bailly who recently tested positive for coronavirus.
    Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho will take on his former club without Ben Davies and Matt Doherty who are out with an ankle and muscle injury respectively
    PAUL THE KING’S MEN
    Manchester United players would be devastated if Paul Pogba left the club.
    Pogba has been repeatedly linked with a move away because of his agent Mino Raiola and that has led to an uneasy relationship with a section of the fans.
    But SunSport understands that the star midfielder is well-liked and respected at the back and his team-mates wouldn’t take it well if he left the Red Devils.
    A source claimed: “Paul may be regarded with suspicion by a lot of the fanbase because of his agent courting other clubs, but there is no doubt where the players stand with him.
    “They recognise he is one of the team’s stars and he is as desperate as they are for the club to be successful again.
    “He is well-liked by all his team-mates and no one wants him to leave.
    “But they also understand if a player is unhappy, it usually leads to his departure.
    “They all hope he will start the next season at Old Trafford”
    JES DO IT
    Arsenal are planning a shock swoop for Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard.
    Lingard has been revived following his loan move to West Ham in the January transfer window and Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to sign him on a permanent basis.
    But the Gunners have also been impressed by the winger and are looking to make a move in the summer transfer window.
    However, the Red Devils are hoping the 28-year-old will sign a one-year extension to his deal that runs out next year so that they can profit out of a possible transfer
    SAM-THING SPECIAL
    Manchester United are keen on bringing Sam Johnstone back to Old Trafford in the summer.
    SunSport understands that United have been keeping an eye on Johnstone and are impressed with his stunning displays at West Brom ever since his £5million move in 2018.
    The Red Devils are going to move for the talented goalkeeper if either David de Gea or Dean Henderson leave at the end of the season.
    And it doesn’t look like the Manchester giants are going to have both De Gea and Henderson next season as none of them is keen on playing second fiddle
    GETTY IMAGES
    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS
    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring keeper Sam Johnstone back from West Brom in a shock swoop, SunSport can exclusively reveal.
    Johnstone’s reputation has grown after a stunning campaign with the Baggies, earning him a first senior England call-up.
    United have put him at the head of their wishlist if David De Gea, 30, or Dean Henderson go this summer.
    Johnstone, 28, who came through the Old Trafford ranks before a £5million move to Albion in 2018, could be tempted to move as his deal is about to enter its final year.
    It could be one in, one out as Arsenal track Jesse Lingard.
    The England midfielder has rejuvenated his career at West Ham following his loan switch in January.
    David Moyes is desperate to make his move a permanent one.
    But SunSport can exclusively reveal how Arsenal are ready to gazump their London rivals.
    Lingard has just 12 months left on his current contract, and ideally United would like him to sign another – if only to ensure they get top dollar should they sell.
    Meanwhile Paul Pogba’s team-mates would be devastated if he left Old Trafford.
    A United source told SunSport how he is a hugely popular figure in the dressing room.
    They said: “Paul may be regarded with suspicion by a lot of the fanbase because of his agent courting other clubs, but there is no doubt where the players stand with him.
    “They recognise he is one of the team’s stars and he is as desperate as they are for the club to be successful again.
    “He is well-liked by all his team-mates and no one wants him to leave.
    “But they also understand if a player is unhappy, it usually leads to his departure.”
    RICE TRY
    Exclusive: West Ham will tell Manchester United to forget any plans to offer Jesse Lingard as part of a deal to sign Declan Rice.
    The Hammers are desperate to tie Lingard down to a permanent deal at the London Stadium following the success of his loan spell at the club.
    But United want Rice to help provide the base in their midfield to build a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.
    That has led to Old Trafford bosses wondering if they could broker a deal which would see Lingard play a makeweight in an £80million package to take Rice to the North-West.
    Yet West Ham are in no mood to be bullied and want to seal a straight deal for Lingard this summer.
    And they have no intention of their 22-year-old vice-captain being part of any conversations over a transfer.
    TOP POG
    Exclusive: Paul Pogba is a captain in the Manchester United dressing room and will leave his team-mates devastated if he is sold.
    The French World Cup-winning midfielder has a difficult relationship with fans after his agent repeatedly linked him with a move away.
    But a source said Pogba is hugely popular in the dressing room.
    They said: “Paul may be regarded with suspicion by a lot of the fanbase because of his agent courting other clubs, but there is no doubt where the players stand with him.
    “They recognise he is one of the team’s stars and he is as desperate as they are for the club to be successful again.
    “He is well-liked by all his team-mates and no one wants him to leave.
    “But they also understand if a player is unhappy, it usually leads to his departure.
    “They all hope he will start the next season at Old Trafford.”
    PLAY IT AGAIN SAM
    Exclusive: Manchester United want to bring keeper Sam Johnstone back from West Brom in a shock swoop.
    Johnstone’s reputation has grown after a stunning campaign with the Baggies, earning him a first senior England call-up.
    United have put him at the head of their wishlist if David De Gea, 30, or Dean Henderson go this summer.
    We revealed the Red Devils would not carry on with both De Gea and Henderson, 24, sharing games in the future.
    Johnstone, 28, who came through the Old Trafford ranks before a £5million move to Albion in 2018, could be tempted to move as his deal is about to enter its final year.
    West Brom might cash in as Johnstone is also one of their top earners.
    FOR-EVRA
    Even Patrice Evra is getting involved in the 14-year anniversary of Man Utd’s 7-1 win over Roma.
    The classic match saw him net his first Champions League goal.

    PAY FUL PRICE
    Premier League giants Manchester United and Tottenham are both considering a move for on-loan Fulham defender Joachim Andersen, according to reports.
    Parent club Lyon are believed to have slapped a £25million price tag on the 24-year-old.
    According to the Telegraph, Lyon have already received an offer for Andersen from an unnamed Premier League club.
    The French side are rumoured to be in need of the cash and willing to accept around £25m for the player.
    Reports suggest the Denmark international is being monitored by Man Utd, who are set to release Phil Jones in the summer.

    MAN UTD’S H2H V SPURS
    The last time Spurs did the double over Man Utd in the top flight? The 1989-90 season. 31 years ago.
    INTERESTING STAT…

    KANE REMINDER
    A reminder of the story of the day which could potentially have a major impact on Manchester United…
    Tottenham star Harry Kane is going to push for an exit from the club if Spurs fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
    That is according to The Athletic, who claim Kane has grown increasinly frustrated with the north Londoners’ lack of silverware and general direction.
    The England captain has said he will clarify his future after this summer’s delayed Euro 2020 competition.
    However, Kane appears reluctant to spend another year outside of Europe’s elite tournament and may have to look for a different club if Tottenham fail to finish in the top four.
    Manchester United have been previously linked with the 27-year-old but Tottenham are not keen on letting their star striker join a Premier League rival
