Roy Keane has insisted that Manchester United should spend the money to sign Tottenham star Harry Kane, despite claiming he has "doubts" over the England international's leadership abilities

Kane has told Spurs he wants to leave this summer, having publicily admitted he wants to win trophies, and has been linked with a switch to a number of top European clubs, including United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.

Tottenham reportedly want £120million for their star striker, and former Red Devil, Keane, believes his old side must make a deal happen for the 28-year-old.

"The only thing I’d hold against Kane, there’s a big negative I have towards Kane," Keane told SkyBet. "I think Kane is an amazing player, every club should be trying to sign him, Manchester United have got to sign him, I don’t care if it’s £120 million… sign him.

"But I don’t think he’s a good leader. I never see him digging anyone out at Spurs. I know people might go, ‘well that’s not his personality’ or, ‘he might do it in the dressing room’. I don’t think he does and that’s a big problem. Okay, you can lead with your brilliant play. But I think sometimes I want to see another side to Kane, I’d love to see him get hold of somebody."

He added: "Okay, you can lead with your brilliant play, but sometimes I think I want to see another side to Kane. I'd love to see him get hold of somebody, and I'm on about Spurs.

"Some players have been really poor or downing tools for certain managers. I never saw Kane digging them out. So that's my only hang-up with Kane as a leader and a captain."

Premier League champions City are reportedly leading the race for Kane, with Pep Guardiola keen on bolstering his frontline, and replace Sergio Aguero, who joined Barcelona earlier this month.
