Harry Redknapp believes that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy should consider selling Harry Kane to Manchester United if a bid of £45m is made.
Kane enjoyed a fine campaign last term and scored over 30 goals in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
His performances have reportedly caught the eye of Man United and Louis van Gaal and the Dutchman is said to be considering making a move for him.
Redknapp insisted that Spurs should do what they can to keep hold of Kane but that a bid of £45m may be too good to refuse.
Speaking about the situation, Redknapp said: “The rumours are that Manchester United are interested in Harry Kane and while it would be a good move for the player it would be a disaster for Spurs.
“If they were to sell their best player – the one shining light from last season – then what message would it send to the fans? The club have to keep their best players if they’re to progress.
“But if United were to put in a £45 million bid I reckon Daniel will look at it in the cold light of day and if he thinks Kane isn’t worth that amount of money then I can see him doing the deal.
“But if he was to leave then it would be a terrible signal to send to the fans.”
While Kane undoubtedly had a tremendous season last term, there is a question mark over whether or not he can keep up those performance levels in the years to come.
After all, players such as Andy Carroll and James Beattie have gone through similarly impressive seasons before fading into mediocrity. Kane may well be worth £45m someday but it might be too much of a risk for United to make a move now.
