Spurs chief backed to consider £45m Man United deal for star man

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes that White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy could consider selling Harry Kane to Manchester United if a bid of £45m is made.

The England international enjoyed a breath-taking 2014/15 season, rising from a squad player at Spurs to the club’s key forward and even stand-in captain.

He netted over 30 goals all told, and his performances have reportedly attracted interest from Manchester United, who are pondering a £40m offer.

And while Redknapp believes that Spurs should not consider letting the 21-year-old leave, he believes that should £45m be put on the table Levy could give a deal serious thought:

“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.” He wrote on Kicca. “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.”

Redknapp knows Levy well from his time in the Spurs dugout, and the sales of star players such as Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale for vast fees through the years suggest that the North London club may be open to a financially rewarding agreement.
