Manchester United planning surprise swoop for Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane

Jan Vertonghen needed just one word to sum up his afternoon on Twitter as he scored for Tottenham for the first time since October 2013 as Mauricio Pochettino's men booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Mauricio Pochettino has overseen a remarkable period of progress since taking charge in 2014 but the team's improvement is yet to be converted into trophy success.

Kane was a surprise starter as he scored twice in two minutes to see off the fearless resistance of AFC Wimbledon before Jan Vertonghen sealed the win.

After making it clear he thinks the club should be fighting for the top four, and also making sure they do well in Europe, it was claimed he does not think winning one of the domestic cups is good enough for the club, yet he says that could not be further from the truth.

"I think Harry is this type of a player who can stay all his career at Tottenham because he loves Tottenham".

"But we need to be careful and clear in how we manage him". "I think it is a massive example or massive point to show how this business is", said Pochettino.

"Liverpool is one of the best clubs in the world and look when Coutinho or a player like Coutinho wants to leave", Pochettino said.

Spurs will welcome their London neighbours in the domestic cup competition as AFC Wimbledon get the chance to play at the home of English football.

"With Coutinho, I think Liverpool wanted to keep him but it is hard to keep him, and look what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo with Manchester [United], Zidane with Juventus, Figo with Barcelona".

'That's why it's important to work together and try to achieve all we want. Of course, Harry is a special player.

But it was their talisman who scored twice in two minutes to blow the game wide apart.
