Man Utd urged to sign Kane as his ‘head’s not in right place’, claims Berbatov

first_imgDIMITAR BERBATOV has called for Harry Kane to follow his example and swap Tottenham for Manchester United.Speculation is mounting around the England captain after he declared that he would not stay in North London “for the sake of it”.3 Real Madrid, Juventus and United are all thought to be keen on KaneCredit: PA:Press Association3 Berbatov made the switch to Manchester on the deadline day of 2008Credit: AP:Associated PressKane is yet to win a major trophy at Tottenham, whose last honour came with Berbatov up front in the 2008 League Cup.And the Bulgarian forward believes there are big similarities between his situation and the 26-year-old’s ahead of the coming transfer market.Recalling his £30million move to Manchester, Berbatov told 5 Live’s Football Daily: “In a way, yes it was [a no-brainer].”I’m from a small country, and I wished to play my whole career in England with one team, but in my case I needed to work and climb my ladder of success – and the final step for me was United.”And when they came of course I knew I would be making people disappointed – especially Tottenham fans – but I was following my own path.”I knew if I missed that chance another one might never come. This is how it is in football.”Sometimes you’ll leave people disappointed because you’re going to follow your own path but it’s a tough decision you need to take to reach the next stage.”The sad thing is in football, because it was established a long time ago with its big clubs, you will always have that situation for Spurs or other teams weaker than Spurs,where their best players are going to ask, ‘Do I stay here or go to a bigger club?’.He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and his head sometimes is maybe not in the right place.”Dimitar Berbatov”The same situation is happening with Harry Kane at the moment, exactly the same.”He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and his head sometimes is maybe not in the right place.”My head was not in the right place, at times. How can it be? I was thinking to myself, ‘What is going on, I don’t want this to happen, I don’t want to put my team in a position where I go late and they don’t have a replacement’.”After leaving White Hart Lane for Old Trafford, Berbatov scooped two Premier League titles, a Club World Cup and another League Cup.However the chances of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side replicating that success is now considerably lower – a point the 39-year-old accepts.United are not the only ones chasing Kane though, with Juventus and Real Madrid reported as interested and Berbatov feels the forward’s performances may drop off is his hunger for trophies goes unsatisfied.He continued: “It was the same with [Christian] Eriksen. He wasn’t there in the last couple of games. I watched the games and I saw that his head was not there.”He wanted to help, trying to help, but when you’re not fully concentrated it’s not going to happen.MAN UTD NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest United newsmost read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him3″Kane is in the same situation.
