    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FOOTBALL

    Tottenham star Harry Kane reiterated his wish to play Champions League football during an interview with Gary Neville.

    Kane has reportedly informed Spurs of his intention to leave the club at the end of the season as the north Londoners failed to qualify for Europe's elite competition for the second year in a row.

    The England captain told Neville's YouTube show, The Overlap: "I want to be playing in the biggest games. This season, I'm watching the Champions League and the English teams doing amazing, and they're the games I want to be involved in.

    "It's a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I'm at. Ultimately it's going to be down to me, how I feel and what's going to be the best for me and my career"

    AL BE WAITING

    Raul Albiol cannot wait for his personal duel with Edinson Cavani in the Europa League final.

    The Villarreal defender stated his lack of surprise in seeing Cavani succeed at Manchester United.

    He told reporters: “We all know the great player that Cavani is. It is not strange that he is in such good shape and continues to score. 

    “It was strange to me that he spent a long time without a team after ending his contract with PSG. 

    “The truth is that in Manchester he found a place where football is life, and he is Uruguayan and has football in his blood. 

    “If Cavani does not play, there will be another striker. In the final we will face excellent strikers. We will all have to do our best.”

    HOMECOMING

    The return of fans to Old Trafford meant 1968 European Cup winner Paddy Crerand was finally able to get back to his favourite pastime.

    The Scot told United’s website: “I’ve been involved in football all my life, supporting Celtic and Manchester United, so it’s great to go back.

    “The camaraderie, that’s what you miss. You miss all the people you’ve lived with more or less every day of your life.

    “Being an ex-player, you meet fans from all different countries in the world. They’ll always come and have a chat with you. 

    “You miss that conversation and all that stuff that goes on at a football match. Not just for me, but every football fan in the country.”

  • Marc Mayo

    CITY SLICKERS

    Manchester City are front of the queue for Harry Kane, according to The Guardian.

    Rivals Manchester United are said to be less interested in a deal following Edinson Cavani’s new contract.

    And Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is noted as especially keen not to sell to London neighbours Chelsea.

    Pep Guardiola’s champions have reportedly already been in touch with Kane’s camp and the striker is keen on the move.

    LEV-ERAGE

    Manchester United target Harry Kane is preparing to have an 'open and honest' conversation with Daniel Levy over his future.

    The striker has admitted he thinks the club's chairman could be tempted to cash in when they finally have their discussion.

    He told Sky Sports' Gary Neville: "He's been great with me, always rewarded me with contracts, he's been fair.

    "I'm not sure how the conversation will go to be honest.

    "He might want to sell me. He might think, 'If I can get £100million for you then, why not?' I might not be worth that in the next two or three years.

    "I hope we have a good enough relationship, I've been there 16 years of my life so I hope we can have a good honest conversation and see where we're at."

    He stated: "I don't want to have come to the end of my career and have any regrets. So, I want to be the best that I can be.

    "I've said before, I'd never say that I'd stay at Spurs for the rest of my career. I'd never said that I would leave Spurs.

    "I still feel like I've still got almost another career to play. I've got another seven or eight years.

    "I'm not rushing anything. I'm not desperate to do anything. I feel like for sure I've got so much more to give. I feel like I can be even better than what I've been."

    PEDAL TO THE METAL

    Manchester United’s slump in form is risking their Europa League final bid.

    Trevor Sinclair has told talkSPORT that defeats to Leicester and Liverpool, plus the draw to Fulham, are linked to Harry Maguire’s absence.

    He said: “You look at the form since Maguire came out of the squad with injury, they’ve really struggled.

    “Leicester was a 2-1 loss and it was a real shame that they put a weakened team out, but there was a combination of De Gea, Lindelof and Tuanzebe at the back.

    “I don’t know whether Ole knows his best three with mature out the team. They keep on conceding and their home form has been a big issue anyway.

    “Going into that game against Villarreal, they need to know what their best side is otherwise they’ll have problems.”

    MAGUIRE UPDATE

    Speaking after the draw with Fulham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cast doubt on Harry Maguire’s return from his ankle injury in time for the Europa League final.

    He said: "Harry, we are working on. It doesn’t look great."

    Ahead of the draw with the Cottagers, Solskjaer had remarked: "Harry is our leader and he's been a big miss at the moment.

    "I'll give him as long as he needs before he says yes or no.

    "He's making progress but we don't want to test it out too early. Harry wants this so much but he doesn't want to take risks either."

    HARRY UP

    Harry Maguire has opened up on the ankle injury putting his Europa League final and Euro 2020 participation at risk.

    Manchester United are sweating on their captain's fitness, which the player has described as 'unfortunate'.

    Looking back on the incident, Maguire said: “Basically, he just fell on me and put all his weight on me — and I ended up twisting my ankle.

    “It wasn’t a muscle injury, so it was a bit unfortunate and very frustrating.

    “I was very disappointed on the night and the day after, but I’ve come to terms with it. I’ve got to be positive.

    “I’ve got to look forward and make sure when I’m ready to come back that I’m fully fit, raring to go and can pick up where I left off.”

    HARRY ALONG NOW

    Ryan Mason has dismissed concerns over Harry Kane's Tottenham future.

    The striker applauded Spurs fans after last night's defeat to Aston Villa in what some described as a farewell.

    Manchester United, City and Chelsea are all linked with a mega-money move.

    And Mason said: "He means a lot. He’s a Tottenham player.

    "I’ve answered so many questions on Harry Kane in the last 24 hours. I’m willing to speak about the game but not individuals. We were fully focused on the match and I’m very disappointed.

    "There are so many emotions in football. I love representing this football club. Yes a lot has been going on but our aim is to get results on the pitch and unfortunately we didn’t do that."

    ING IN TO WIN IT

    Manchester United will reportedly attempt to sign Southampton striker Danny Ings this summer – despite Edinson Cavani’s new deal.

    Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking to add to his striking department for months to help close the gap on champions Man City.

    The Telegraph states United have enquired about a swoop for Ings.

    The 28-year-old only has a year left on his Southampton contract and has yet to agree to an extension.

    And due to the threat of losing him for free next season looming, United know Southampton will be put under pressure to sell if a formal offer is placed.
