Tottenham striker Harry Kane ‘might fancy Barcelona or Real Madrid one day’, but Harry Redknapp questions Manchester United transfer links

Harry Redknapp believes Harry Kane may consider leaving Tottenham for Barcelona or Real Madrid ‘one day’, but has told talkSPORT that he doubts the England captain would move to Manchester United.

Reports over the weekend claimed the Red Devils were ready to spend £200million to sign the 26-year-old striker, and that Spurs were willing to cash in for what would be a new world record transfer fee.

Those reports have since been refuted by Tottenham sources and it is understood the north London are NOT considering selling their talisman striker.

However, the links with a move to Old Trafford will no doubt persist, with United legend Gary Neville saying Kane himself ‘opened the door’ to his exit following his recent comments that he would not stay at his boyhood club ‘for the sake of it’, while making clear his ambition to win top trophies.

And former Tottenham boss Redknapp is confident the striker WILL remain at Spurs for the time being, but concedes a player of his supreme quality will leave one day.


But, with United currently fighting alongside the north Londoners for a place in the Premier League top-four, he has doubts over whether an Old Trafford move would even appeal to him.

Speaking on the talkSPORT Breakfast, Redknapp said: “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.

“Okay, he’s not Messi, he’s not Ronaldo, but as a centre-forward that does what he does, there isn’t anyone better.

“He would be a great fit for Man United, he’d be a great fit for any team… but Man United at the moment are not better than Tottenham. I wouldn’t say there’s much between them, both teams are trying to get into the top four.

“Whether Real Madrid or Barcelona came in, he might fancy a move like that one day.

“But at the moment he belongs to Tottenham, and unless Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy decide to will cash in if it’s a crazy offer and rebuild the team with that money, unless Jose says, ‘I’ve got three players here we can sign and build a better team with’, then I’m sure he’ll stay at Tottenham.”
