The England striker has been linked with the Red Devils but has been endorsed to fill a significant void in their regional rivals.
Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Harry Kane will be questioning his future at the club and said he could prove an ideal signing for Manchester City.
Kane admitted this week that his long-term future may lie away from Spurs if they don’t compete for silverware with Manchester United one of the clubs most closely connected with a possible move.
The England striker is receptive to a move to Old Trafford but any deal between the two clubs could prove hard to pull off.
While hopeful Kane stays at Tottenham, Redknapp admits that he may consider a move away shortly, with United’s bitter rivals a potentially perfect match for him with chief striker Sergio Aguero place to turn 32 in June.
“Listen, Harry is an ambitious boy. He’s a fantastic professional, a wonderful lad, and he would like to play and he would like to win things,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
“They [Tottenham] need surgery in the summer, but are they going to be spending some money? Is anybody going to be spending money today in the next couple of years and going for large transfers?
“He will be looking at that and thinking’hang on’.
“And what a player he’d be for one of those clubs. I don’t wish to see him leave Tottenham and do Tottenham fans, but what a centre-forward he’d be for Man City for example with Aguero coming to the finish.
“He would be a fantastic signing for anybody. He’s a wonderful player and a fantastic professional – hopefully he will stay at Tottenham but he will not stay unless he sees them pushing to acquire things.”
While Spurs remain eager to continue to their club captain and star player, the team have been advocated by former player Jamie O’Hara to cash in on him while he is at his most precious.
“Tottenham should rebuild; they have got to earn four or five new players to actually change that staff and get them playing where they must be,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.
“I could understand Harry’s frustration, and he is getting to the stage now where he is a world-class footballer who’s worth plenty of money, and whether the trophies aren’t likely to come in another two or three seasons in Spurs, which is looking likely, do they eliminate him and money in?
“If you are going to sell Harry Kane, you have to sell him at his peak — and he is at his peak now with respect to his market value.”
