Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Manchester Unitedwould not represent a step-up for in-demand striker Harry Kane.
The England captain has ignited rumours of a potential imminent exit by refusing to rule out a move away from Tottenham, insisting he will not stay just “for the sake of it”.
SportVectru understands that Kane is on United’s summer shortlist, though Spurs are thought to have no interest in selling the 26-year-old – even with a potential transfer fee of £200million being reported.
Spurs are adamant they will not sell their prolific talisman to a Premier League rival, but the club do have a recent history of selling their best players to United; Dimitar Berbatovand Michael Carrick both completing moves in the past.
However, where United were the dominant force when those transfers occurred, Redknapp – speaking to talkSPORT – believes the playing grounds are now far more even.
“Harry Kane is a special player, he’s the best centre-forward certainly in the Premier League and – of his type – I don’t think there’s a better centre forward anywhere,” Redknapp explained.
“Okay, he’s not [Lionel] Messi, he’s not [Cristiano] Ronaldo, but as a centre-forward that does what he does, there isn’t anyone better.
