Spurs striker Harry Kane will find a summer move to Manchester United difficult to resist, according to former Newcastle United and England midfielder Rob Lee.

The Manchester Evening News has reported that executive vice chairman Ed Woodward is ready to test the North London club with a bid of £50m for Kane, who scored 31 goals for club and country last season.

With Radamel Falcao having left United following a disappointing loan spell, during which time he netted just four goals, the club are expected to launch a search for a new striker.

And Lee believes that should United come calling this summer, Kane will have a difficult decision to make between his boyhood club and the 20-time English league champions.

"People are talking about a transfer to Manchester United, which would be very interesting to see if that happens," he told Talksport.

"I think [Levy] will try, they won't want to lose him. He does what he thinks is best for the club and what he has got on his side is Kane won't want to leave because he's a Spurs fan, but not many turn down Manchester United when they come calling.

"When Wayne Rooney was coming through [United] still got him. [£50m] is bonkers money but the fans still wouldn't be happy with that."

The 21 year old is currently away on international duty with the England Under-21 side at the European Championship, but has already made his senior debut and scored within a minute against Lithuania in March.

Kane became the first Tottenham player to reach 30 goals in a season since Gary Lineker 23 years ago, and is just the eighth Englishman in the Premier League era to reach such a tally.

His goals helped win 24 points for Tottenham last season, more than any other player, as the north Londoners finished fifth in the Premier League, with a double against Arsenal among the many highlights of his breakthrough season.

And Lee says that showing against Arsenal, when Kane netted twice in the second half to claim a memorable win for Mauricio Pochettino's side, reminded him of Alan Shearer in his pomp.

"He's the closest thing I've seen to Alan Shearer," he added. "I know he's only had one [big] season but I saw his header against Arsenal and I've seen Alan do that many, many times.

"If he can be half the player Alan was he will be a very good player. I think he can hold the ball up and his finishing is very good as well. He's very young and he's going to only get better. Hopefully he can have another season like he had last year."
