Kane was linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer [Mirror], but ultimately stayed at White Hart Lane where, after a slow start to the season, he has finally found his scoring form.
The 22-year-old has scored eight goals in 14 league games so far this season, and has set about proving that last season’s goal haul—the forward managed 21 goals in 34 outings—was not a one-off fluke.
However, while Kane has recently signed a new deal at White Hart Lane, Sheringham—who himself swapped North London for Manchester—has urged the England international not to wait too long before seeking glory elsewhere.
“I’d like to think that (the contract Kane signed earlier this year) keeps him at Tottenham for another couple of years,” Sheringham began, as per the Metro.
“The game is all about timing. Sometimes you can leave a club too early and join a bigger club when the timing isn’t quite right.
“Tell him not to wait too long, though. Not as long as I waited. I was 31 by the time I went to Man United.”

Sheringham, of course, achieved great success at Old Trafford, and was part of the club’s terrific treble-winning side of 1999.
However, despite remaining a Tottenham legend after years of splendid service at White Hart Lane, it’s tantalising to imagine what the forward might have achieved had he moved to a club higher up the domestic pecking order earlier in his career.
