Harry Kane has put Manchester United on red alert after admitting crisis-club Tottenham have lost their values of late.
United have been keeping tabs on Kane this season and the Daily Star exclusively revealed that the Red Devils are plotting an £80million bid for the forward before the campaign ends, in order to beat rivals Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Barcelona to his signature. And United's interest received a huge boost by the England captain's latest admission about his current employers.
Spurs have been in disarray this season, their turbulent form could see them miss out on Champions League football, whilst they hunt for a new manager following the sacking of Antonio Conte, followed by the ousting of his assistant-turned-interim boss Cristian Stellini.

The decline of the club over the past four years, since the exit of Mauricio Pochettino has left Kane reminiscing of better days in north London.
And if he were to stay, Kane's adamant that the club needs to return to its core values to move forward.

He told Sky Sports: "Yeah, I think whenever you have a good moment as a team, I think we had three or four really good years when we were competing at the very top and that was without spending loads of money.
"We had a really good mixture of young and experienced players. It's impossible in football to click your fingers and go back to the good times and say 'let's go back to what it was', because every season and every situation is different. But I feel like there were some values at that time and some culture that really made us achieve the things we did.
"So maybe we've lost parts of that over the last few years and it's about looking back at that and seeing the good things we can take from that and trying to implement that in the future."
Pochettino and Kane could still potentially be reunited across London this summer, with Chelsea reportedly prepared to go all-out to sign the striker from their rivals.
Argentine coach Pochettino looks poised to become the Blues' new manager, and while he and Kane share a strong relationship, the likelihood of Daniel Levy doing a deal with Chelsea is low, meaning United remain frontrunners.
Playing Champions League football next season could play a huge role in Kane's decision to stay or leave north London this summer. And United and Spurs are locked in a battle for the final top-four spot in the latter stage of the season.
