ALAN SHEARER has urged Harry Kane to QUIT Tottenham and finally get his hands on some well-earned silverware – with Manchester United strongly linked.
The England captain, 27, has long been linked with a move away from North London with Spurs yet to win a trophy since the 2008 League Cup.

Tottenham will once again finish the season trophyless after losing the Carabao Cup final last month.
And their top-four hunt took a serious blow on Saturday too after Spurs slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Leeds leaving them seven points off fourth-placed Leicester.
Lineker asked: “Does this sort of lacklustre display make any difference to the sort of decision Harry Kane will have to make at the end of this season?
“Put yourself in Harry Kane’s shoes – Alan, you ended up at Newcastle, although it’s a different order and he started at his hometown club, but what do you think?”
Shearer replied: “When I left Blackburn, I had a season after we won the title and we were nowhere near winning the title.
“That sort of made my mind up as I then wanted to go on and try and do things.
“So if Harry wants an excuse, then Tottenham and that team are giving him one.”
Shearer concluded: “They didn’t show up for the cup final and they didn’t show up [against Leeds].
“If I was in his position, I’d go and look elsewhere to try and win trophies.”
Over the weekend, SunSport exclusively revealed Kane had asked Tottenham to listen to offers for him, with Man Utd eyeing up a monster £90million move.
It’s understood Kane will stop short of requesting a transfer but the hope is by appealing to Levy to be open to bids, it may see a big-money move set up.
It is the clearest indication yet he could decide he has run his course in North London after joining the club academy in 2004.
Spurs have remained resolute in the position they do not want to sell, with the added confidence Kane still has three years on his existing contract.
But the manner of Tottenham’s dismal fall from even a top-four spot this season, plus the uncertainty over who will be the next manager, has led Kane to consider his options.
