Hughes claims Kane is ‘made to measure for Manchester United’
Mark Hughes thinks Tottenham striker Harry Kane is “made to measure for Manchester United” amid speculation over his future.

Kane has been linked with United, Manchester City and Chelsea since reports came out a week ago that he had told Spurs that he was ready to leave.
The England international added fuel to the fire later in the week in an interview with former United right-back Gary Neville, in which he gave the biggest indication yet that he is ready to leave the club and claimed that he will control his own future.

And former Man Utd player Hughes reckons Old Trafford would be the perfect place to use as a “platform” if Kane wants to leave Spurs for silverware.
“I think Kane could take United back to a title-winning level,” Hughes told Sky Sports.
“From watching United this season, the one thing that’s always struck me is that when they don’t have that focal point to the attack, when [Edinson] Cavani isn’t playing and the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial or Mason Greenwood are playing up top, it doesn’t quite function as well as it should.
“I think United are always better when Cavani is actually down the middle. He’s done great for United this year and I think it is great news for them that they’ve been able to keep him for another year.
“Whether that means they aren’t going to pursue Kane really forcefully because they feel in the short-term that they’ve got a solution.
“I think from my point of view, with my red goggles on, I would love Harry Kane to be there because I think he’d be made to measure for Manchester United. He’d have a lot of good talent around him, and they’d give him that platform hopefully to win trophies because clearly Harry Kane is at the point of his career where that’s what’s missing from his career.
“He wants to make sure that the next step, if he does make a step, is going to guarantee trophies. It’s not about money, it’s not about prestige – it’s about making your mark in the game.”
