Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker Harry Kane is underpaid at the White Hart Lane club and could end up at Manchester United in the near future if he does not receive a bumper new deal, pundit Rickard Keys has stated.
The England international centre forward is one of the Premier League’s most-lethal marksmen and has been a revelation for Spurs since breaking into the first team.

It is believed that Kane is in the process of negotiating a new deal with Tottenham and the attacker admitted recently that he wants to pen an extension with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
However, the tight wage structure at the North London club is reportedly making progress difficult, with Daniel Levy reluctant to break the £100,000 per week barrier.
Keys believes that the allure of United could well see Kane move to Old Trafford, where a bumper pay day could be waiting for the Premier League’s 2015-16 top goalscorer.
“Kane has three and a half years left on his deal, but there’ll be a break clause in it,” he wrote in his personal blog.
“For what he’s contributing at Spurs he’s seriously underpaid. Would you believe Sissoko earns more?
“Manchester United are aware and want Kane. We’ve all read those stories – and what United want they generally get.
“Unless Spurs come up with a proper deal – my view is Kane will soon be at Old Trafford. And I mean ‘soon’.”
Kane has recently recovered from an ankle injury and scored twice as Spurs beat West Ham 3-2 at White Hart Lane last weekend.
The England international will lead the line as Tottenham travel to Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday.
