Man United transfers: Harry Kane won’t leave, says Harry Redknapp
Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp doesn't envisage Harry Kane joining Manchester United this summer
Harry Redknapp doesn’t expect Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to join Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old striker, who is currently on England Under-21 international at European Championship in Czech Republic, has emerged as a reported target for Louis van Gaal.
I don’t think [chairman] Daniel Levy will sell Harry. He knows what that would do to the club
Kane scooped the PFA young player of the year award after the Spurs striker scored 21 goals in 32 Premier League appearances for the north London side last term.
Former Spurs boss Redknapp reckons Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wouldn’t risk upsetting the supporters and selling Kane to a direct rival.
“If Harry Kane left Tottenham there would be uproar,” Redknapp told talkSPORT. “It would send out all the wrong signals to Tottenham fans.
“I don’t think [chairman] Daniel Levy will sell Harry. He knows what that would do to the club.
“I was at West Ham when they sold Rio Ferdinand and, when that happened, it was like a pack of cards. Lots of top youngsters then left the club.
“Harry Kane is so popular and he’s had a fantastic season. It would send out the wrong signals about Tottenham’s ambitions for the future.
“I really can’t see any way they would do that.”
Kane initially started the season on the fringes of Pochettino’s first-team after the Argentine was announced as Tim Sherwood’s successor.
The England striker scored 31 goals in 55 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham last season.
Spurs man Kane signed a new five-and-a-half year deal with the White Hart Lane outfit in February.
