Jamie Redknapp has warned Tottenham Hotspur that selling Danny Rose to Manchester United could trigger a mass exodus at the north London club.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move to sign the England international regularly over the past 12 months as Jose Mourinho looks to address a problem position.

The Spurs full-back caused controversy earlier this summer when he addressed Tottenham’s much-discussed wage structure following Kyle Walker’s move to Manchester City.

Tottenham have one of Europe’s best strikers in their ranks after Kane scored 31 times in 29 games in the Premier League last term.

Spurs midfielder Dele Alli is also rated as one of the Premier League’s most naturally gifted midfielders following 16 goals in the Premier League last season.

Kane has been linked with a potential move to Real Madrid in recent months, while he was previously touted as a Manchester United target before Romelu Lukaku’s arrival.

Former Spurs midfielder Redknapp warned that selling Rose to Manchester United could cause some unhappiness amongst Tottenham’s best players.

“This summer, Europe’s biggest clubs in Europe will be circling to buy Harry Kane and Dele Alli. If Rose is allowed to leave, it gives his team-mates a reason to move elsewhere, too,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

Manchester United edged to a 1-0 win against Brighton on Saturday, while West Brom held Tottenham to a 1-1 stalemate.
