Harry Kane believes he is at a big club in TottenhamReuters

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane gave the answer that 99 percent of footballers give to reported interest from another club, when asked about the proposed summer transfer to Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Kane has reportedly been identified by Manchester United as the answer to their striking woes, with the Premier league biggies preparing a bid worth £40 million.

Manchester United are in the market for a new striker, after deciding against making the loan move for Radamel Falcao into a permanent one.

Robin Van Persie has also been tipped for a move away, while Javier Hernandez might be sold as well, meaning Louis Van Gaal desperately needs a new striker who can bang in the goals.

Kane certainly fits that bill, having scored 31 goals in all competitions last season.

Currently with the England U-21 squad for the European Championships, Kane was asked about the interest from Manchester United, and the reply to the question was pretty much on expected lines, with "happy" and "flattered" being the primary words.

"I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs," Kane was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I have seen there is interest but that's all I know. It is flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested."

Pressed on the subject, Kane was asked how difficult it would be to turn down a move to a "big club." Kane's answer, no doubt, would have endeared him to Spurs fans.

"Tottenham are one of the big clubs," the England international, currently at the European U-21 championships said. "That is the way people have to see it.

"I am at a big club."

Manchester United, though, know Tottenham have been a bit of a selling club, with Daniel Levy ready to let his players leave, as long as he gets the right price for them.

Tempting Levy to let Kane leave will be difficult, however, and Manchester United will, no doubt, have to put in a bid bigger than the £40 million that has been reported to force Tottenham's hand, because it does not look like the player himself will not try to manufacture a move.
